Do you know which channels they prefer?

Or, to make it easier on yourself, just use the results from Marketing Sherpa’s recent survey.
Earlier this year, the marketing research firm asked 2,057 American adults: “In which of the following ways, if any, would you prefer companies to communicate with you?”
Marketing Sherpa learned that only eight percent of people don’t like to receive any marketing materials at all. They also learned the various ways people prefer to access deals and other special offers. Some of the highlights:
• 49% prefer to receive information via emails at a frequency they choose.
The best way to reach these consumers: Use ShortStack’s “Enter Email to Receive Coupon” template.
