A clear strategy needs to be put in place when it comes to marketing. Several email marketers have come out with the predictions for 2013. Their primary predictions focus on mobile email marketing.
Readers today demand a relevant content and behavioral targeting must be looked upon as an important trend this year. Users today mostly rely on smartphones and tablets, so marketing could be healthy if done via emails. Smartphones have clearly outsold PC, shows a study. Focusing on email marketing would yield better results as it looks good on smartphones. While designing an email, the important thing a marketer must lay emphasis is on the layout.
