Major marketers worldwide use e-mail in their campaigns, according to The McKinsey Quarterly.
In a survey of 311 marketing executives, McKinsey found that 83% used e-mail, ahead of display ads, paid search and online video.
McKinsey also asked about the future of online marketing. By 2010, respondents generally thought the Web would be part of the first two stages of the buyer decision-making process â product awareness and information gathering â for a majority of all consumers.
