The emergence of mobile has caused marketers to re-think how they approach traditional marketing channels. This year, $6 billion was spent online between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, with over $2 billion of that happening on mobile, which equates to an increase of 33% compared to 2015. Yet, even with the rise of purchases on mobile, the click-to-purchase rate on is still half of that of desktop due to a broken linking experience.
One of those broken linking experiences is from marketing emails. In fact, up to 70% of emails opened on mobile, but less than .1% of links in those email take users to the app, there is a huge opportunity for brands to drive even more purchases from mobile.
