Suits - Season 4
USA’s ‘Suits’ Renewed For 7th Season
Per Variety, USA has renewed “Suits” for a seventh season, the network announced Wednesday. The renewal comes as the drama series nears the end of its sixth season — with the season finale scheduled to air Aug. 10. The series is averaging 3 million total viewers, 1.2 million viewers ages 25-54 and 1.1 million viewers ages 18-49 in Nielsen live-plus-three numbers, which cover live viewing plus three days of DVR playback.

Marketing Research
Most E-Mail Subscribers Are NOT Customers
65% of US retail email list subscribers weren’t customers of the retailer that emailed them. Only about one-third of US retail email list subscribers from February 2016 to April 2016 had actually made a purchase from the retailer whose email they subscribed to, according to client data from email marketing firm Listrak. Many had made just one purchase from that retailer.

Of the 35% of US retail email list subscribers who were customers of the retailer they got email from, just 15% had made multiple purchases. For retailers, this means that not only are most email subscribers not past customers, but among those who are, the vast majority are not repeat customers. For consumers, it means many are subscribed to retail emails they may not be terribly interested in—and that could lead to inbox clutter and frustration.

Two-thirds of US internet users who receive five or more retailer emails per week—that&rsuqo;s by any and all retailers—say they receive too many retail emails, which one imagines might turn off users to digital retail. First Insight’s March 2016 report highlights that, of those who receive five or fewer emails per week, just 21% find they receive too many. Again, it’s important to note these internet users are talking about retailers in general, not just emails from one specific company, which means that retailers ought to take the presence of other retailers when considering email marketing campaigns and the frequency of sent emails.

Now Retailer Emails Can Lead to Sales
For nearly a third of retailers, the average customer makes a purchase within the first 48 hours of signing up for marketing emails, June 2016 research found. And for approximately a quarter more merchants, customers first buy within a week of email signup.

The survey from email marketing services provider Campaigner asked retailers that used the company’s platform about the average time between customer email subscriptions and initial purchase. In total, slightly more than half of digital retail marketers in North America said their average customer makes a purchase at most a week after signing up to receive their emails.

By and large, email can be an effective channel for retailers looking to reach consumers, and ultimately, drive sales. Indeed, March 2016 data from WBR Digital and emarsys revealed that email marketing helps with customer acquisition and retention. Four-fifths of US small- and medium-sized retailers said so.

But too many emails can overwhelm customers. First Insight uncovered that consumers are getting too many emails from retailers. Two-thirds of respondents who received five or more retailer emails per week felt they received too many.

85,500+ users are now on the fastest growing platform in all of social media. Why? It creates the best click-thru rate. http://www.cliptomize.com/Clipbook/View/250922… The First step to engagement is click-through 🆕 ‪#‎clipit‬, ‪#‎clip4biz‬🖇

Millennial Research
What Millennial Consumer Behavior Retailers Must Know Now!
If there is one thing the post Great Recession has taught this group is that they want a good deal. It has been imprinted on their dna. And when they are making a decision to buy, the best deal wins.
Millennials love to use coupons, particularly paperless coupons. So for all those retailers out there who are putting their marketing monies into paper coupons or newspaper inserts, there is a better way of reaching this demographic.
When Millennials go into a store to show (grocery stores or otherwise) they use their mobile device while shopping in the store, to find a coupon (again, on their mobile devices…paperless) and compare pricing on that product. They understand how to compare better than any other demographic group.
And when it comes to paying, more than likely they will pay via their smartphone.
And don’t think for a moment the Millennials do not dig and find out about the product and what other people think about the product/service. They search out an read reviews.
And after that, Millennials use Social Media to learn even more.
And, where do they shop? Do retailers have work ahead of them to reach this audience? Before they can buy, they have to know you exist.
And what is the primary influence that pushes Millennials to your store?
Finally, where can you find them when they are shopping?
Next question…
