Email marketing can be a finicky beast, with the industry landscape shifting without warning. The past year saw the launch of a new version of Apple’s mobile operating system (iOS 10), acquisitions by Verizon and Microsoft, and the introduction of new privacy regulations around the world—to name just a few of the issues impacting email marketers today. With the State of Email 2017 report, we give you the trends, innovations, and data you need to build successful email marketing programs in 2017.
As an email designer, it’s your job to build the best subscriber experience, both in form and in function. This means optimizing for an email world that is constantly evolving.

Stay up to date with the 2017 State of Email Report, designed to help you build better email in 2017.

Deliverability can be challenging to understand, but it’s a critical part of a healthy email marketing program. Before your subscribers can open (and hopefully click!) on any emails, they must first receive them in their inboxes.

We analyzed over 360 million Litmus email previews tests to find out where email marketers and designers focused their testing efforts in 2016.

You can use this as a starting point for your 2017 campaigns, or to benchmark your testing efforts against what your peers care about.
