More consumers read email on the move

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by. Georgann SmithWhen formulating an email marketing strategy, keep this in mind: Desktops and laptops are taking a backseat to mobile devices as consumers’ preferred method for checking email.In fact, according to email marketing firm Movable Ink’s U.S. Consumer Device Preference Report: Q4 2013 only 35 percent of emails were opened on desktop PCs, down from 39 percent in just the previous quarter. Smartphones accounted for 48 percent of email opens and tablets accounted for 17 percent. For marketing emails, the number opened on a smartphone is even higher. Nearly 65 percent of marketing emails were opened on a mobile device in the fourth quarter 2013. That’s up from 61 percent in the previous quarter.“This report…shows that we are in the midst of a mobile takeover,” writes Vivek Sharma, co-founder and CEO of Movable Ink. She added, “We expect marketers to continue to place high priority on mobile optimization, which will allow them to better engage consumers who are on-the-go with relevant, real-time offers.”These statistics drive home the importance for financial institution marketers to consider the mobile channel when reaching out to consumers. This means more than simply optimizing the message for a smaller screen; it requires thinking holistically about when, why and how the consumer will interact with your communication and what call-to-action can realistically be expected from on-the-go consumers. continue reading »last_img read more

2015 Orioles preview: Brian Matusz

first_imgWith Opening Day now only days away, we continue to take a look at a member of the 2015 Orioles every day as they try to defend their American League East title this season.March 9 – Adam Jones March 10 – Chris Tillman March 11 – J.J. Hardy March 12 – Zach Britton March 13 – Chris Davis March 14 – Wei-Yin Chen March 15 – Jonathan Schoop March 16 – Travis Snider March 17 – Kevin Gausman March 18 – Alejandro De Aza March 19 – Tommy Hunter March 20 – Manny Machado March 21 – Brad Brach March 22 – Steve Pearce March 23 – Darren O’Day March 24 – Caleb Joseph March 25 – Wesley Wright March 26 – Delmon Young March 27 – Miguel Gonzalez March 28 – Ryan Flaherty March 29 – Ubaldo Jimenez March 30 – Everth Cabrera March 31 – Bud Norris April 1 – Matt Wieters April 2 – Jimmy ParedesLHP Brian MatuszOpening Day age: 28Contract status: Under club control through the 2016 seasonMinor-league options remaining: None2014 stats: 2-3, 3.48 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, 9.2 K/IP, 7 HR, 51 2/3 inningsWhy to be impressed: Even if Matusz never lived up to the potential of being a first-round pick in 2008, he’s carved out a nice role as a lefty specialist with a career 3.26 ERA pitching in relief and struck out 9.2 batters per nine innings while holding lefties to a .223 average in 2014. The southpaw was stretched out this spring, posting an exceptional 1.88 ERA and striking out 12 in 14 1/3 innings of work to draw interest from other clubs. Why to be concerned: A $3.2 million salary is less than ideal for a reliever who surrendered an .876 on-base plus slugging percentage against right-handed hitters a year ago. With a crowded bullpen that now includes fellow lefty Wesley Wright, Matusz doesn’t possess as much value to manager Buck Showalter considering he is often used for only a batter or two.2015 outlook: It’s no secret that the Orioles shopped Matusz all spring with the New York Mets appearing to be a potential suitor before they ultimately turned elsewhere for left-handed relief help. Matusz now appears more likely to begin the regular season in Baltimore, but the decision to tender him a contract this winter remains a puzzling one as the organization tries to figure out what to do with a surplus of bullpen arms. If he sticks around, Matusz is good for an ERA around 3.50 in which he gets the best of left-handed hitters and is kept away from righty sluggers as much as possible.last_img read more
