The joke is that it’s been “The Year of Mobile” for several years in a row now. What’s not funny is that consumer behavior has seriously outpaced marketer action when it comes to embracing mobile.

Data from Litmus Email Analytics shows that we’ve reached a pretty stable state where roughly half of all emails are read on mobile devices. However, joint research between Litmus and the Salesforce Marketing Cloud demonstrate that marketers still have a way to go to catch up, despite great strides over the past two years.

This infographic summarizes our findings, highlighting the gap between consumer adoption of mobile and marketer adoption of mobile-friendly email and landing page design, and provides advice on how to close that gap.
