Although mobile opens are growing in importance, desktop clickthroughs dominate

This analysis of over 395 million sent via MailChimp reveals the impact of mobile devices on email engagement and how Responsive Design can improve email clickthrough rates (CTRs). We all know that mobile rendering is now important, but don't expect so many clicks from those emails read on mobile:

Email clicks are higher from desktops compared to the 'combined clicks from mobile and tablet devices' and desktop users click on more email links - unique CTRs are 40% higher on desktop compared to mobile.

Their infographic shares more interesting email engagement facts as it's apparent that Email Marketers and Marketing Managers planning and designing their email marketing need to take on board these device differences, considering Responsive Design and CTAs.
