    Notes: Emails offering free shipping (54%) or a discount (53%) are the forms of retailer advertising most likely to prompt online shoppers to shop with a retailer, per recently-released results from a UPS and comScore study. Indeed, a recent MarketingCharts study found that consumers are most likely to open emails from brands because the subject line promotes a discount or offer that interests them.

    Retailers have clearly caught onto this trend, per L2 research, which found last year that some 55% of emails sent during Q1 2014 by the 100 omnichannel retail brands tracked in its study advertised discounts, up from 49% the previous year.
