Aug 28 2014, 03:00 AM by

Google’s Automatic Unsubscribe Link: Boon Or Bust? Are you feeling overwhelmed, confused, befuddled, gobsmacked, and figure you’ll never be able to keep up with the rate of frantic change?

Stats Prove Email Is An Unparalleled Marketing Force The recent McKinsey & Company report which demonstrated that email acquires new customers at nearly 40 times the rate of both Facebook and Twitter combined certainly made news, but within the study were other statistics which were just as remarkable to prove the persistent power of email marketing. Of all American consumers, 91 percent use email each and every day, seven days a week, which is close enough to universality to not argue with the details. When compared with the metrics provided by social media marketing, email sends are responsible for purchases at a rate which is more than three times higher and carry an average order value which is 17 percent above its social media counterpart. That report and similar ones from other organizations are filled with outstanding statistics attesting to email’s unique and unparalleled marketing force.

What CASL does even to a greater degree than the already extremely restrictive legislation in place in the European Union, is to effectively prohibit the contact of anyone for any reason without previously obtaining their implied or direct consent to receive a commercial electronic message. While the intent of this legislation is to provide the Canadian government with powerful legal tools to use against spammers, the new law has also caught an inordinate number of legitimate email marketers in a Great White Northern Trap.
