The guys at Volt workforce solutions have produced this intriguing infographic, looking at the types of email client different US professionals use when applying for a new job.
As with the email viewing habits infographic we posted yesterday, it’s worth remembering that these results may not match those of your specific email list – the sample here is people using email to apply for a new job – but there’s some interesting takeouts:
- The big three webmail clients own almost 3/4 market share (remember that these can all be viewed on a mobile, so that’s not necessarily 3/4 of the market using a browser)
- IT, Technical and Creative workers are more likely to have Gmail than Yahoo Mail, but conversely more than half of light industrial users prefer Yahoo.
- Accounting and finance professionals are 60% more likely to use Aol than other users.
- People who are educated at an university level are more likely to use Gmail than Yahoo, however a large amount of those educated to high school level use Yahoo Mail.
Email analytics service Litmus has just released a great infographic looking at email client, browser and device use over the past year. Key takeouts from the research include:
- There’s a sharp rise in users opening emails on mobile devices, particularly over the last 6 months
- Webmail has seen a drop in % share
- Outlook still sees the most email opens at 37%, followed by Hotmail (11%), Yahoo Mail (10%), iPhone (10%)
- Of Outlook’s total share, 84% still use 2000/03, rather than 07/10, which have well documented rendering issues.
- 80% of mobile opens are on an iPhone, vs 19% on Android and 1% on Blackberry.
