The report states in 2007, 51 percent of e-mail users said e-mail inspired at least one online purchase, and 47 percent said the same for off-line purchases. However, in 2008, only 44 percent of users were inspired to purchase online and 41 percent for off-line purchases. In addition, 22 percent of those surveyed said they use social networking sites instead of e-mail, and a large amount more indicated they use their cell phones, text messaging and instant messaging (IM) as an alternative to email.

"People receive such a high volume of e-mail that they are unable to pay attention to every message. It is so important for marketers to be relevant and succinct when they send messages to consumers' inboxes."
