You’ve probably heard the “news” that email marketing is dead. But before we call the undertaker to take email to the marketing morgue, it’s probably worth taking one more set of vital statistics.

The number of email accounts is sitting at a healthy 6.32 billion.

3.7 billion email users worldwide send and receive around 269 billion emails per day.

3,104,450,712 legitimate emails are sent every hour.

And email marketing has an average ROI of 3,800 percent. So, for every dollar a business owner invests, they get $38 in return.

As you can see, email marketing is very much alive.

But on the flip side, they also show the magnitude of how many emails people receive every single day. It is estimated that the average person receives a whopping 121 emails daily.

Inboxes are filled to their virtual brim, with email open rates sitting at 34.1 percent … and falling.
