  • 1. THEDIGITAL CAFÉ
  • 2. DEAR INTERACTIVE MARKETER: Social media has revolutionized how people communicate with each other, interact with brands, and prefer to be contacted by marketers. While marketers have plenty of information about what consumers do online, there’s relatively little information that helps us understand WHY consumers behave the way they do. At ExactTarget, we recognize that creating and maintaining relationships with consumers requires more than clever writing and glossy marketing materials. To truly connect with customers, marketers need to understand both consumer behaviors and motivations. That’s why we went straight to the source. We asked consumers about their usage and attitudes towards email, Facebook, and Twitter—the channels most commonly used by consumers for online communications. In The Digital Café, we build on our global SUBSCRIBERS, FANS, & FOLLOWERS research series by sharing insights from our first-ever study of French online consumers. In this report, you’ll discover how French consumers spend their days interacting with email, Facebook, and Twitter, and what motivates them to become a subscriber, fan, or follower of brands online. Spend some time reading, sharing, and discussing The Digital Café, and let us know how the findings impact your interactive strategy. Warm regards, Jean-Philippe2 © 2012 ExactTarget | www.ExactTarget.com/SFF
  • 3. 77% of the French population is online, and younger consumers, aged 18-44, are much morelikely (97%) to be online than consumers over the age of 64 (31%).INTRODUCTIONThe Digital Café provides an overview of how online French consumers interact with email,Facebook, and Twitter.

  • 6. DIGITAL MORNING Understanding the mindset of consumers as they start their days—whether focused on business, social, or news—as well as the lens through which they access their first online content reveals preferences and priorities and provides valuable insight into the most effective ways to meet consumers where they are. Overall, 78% of online French consumers check email first thing in the morning. In distant second, third, and fourth places are Facebook (11%), search/portal sites (3%), and news sites (3%). Across every age group, email is the most common initial check-in of the digital day, but motivations do vary considerably with age. Older age groups give higher priority to email as they are more likely to use the channel as a primary means of digital interpersonal communication. • 86% of consumers aged 55+ start their digital days with email. • 73% of 25-34 year olds start their days with email and 15% start with Facebook. • 58% of 18-24 year olds start their days with email and 28% start with Facebook. Fifty-three percent of online French consumers own a smartphone. Still, most (79%) use their personal computers as the device of choice in the morning, followed by their mobile phones (10%), with some consumers (8%) waiting until they arrive at work or school to access online content. But, the percentage of people reaching for their smartphones is shifting. Twenty-five percent of 18–24 year olds reach for their mobile phones to perform the first digital check of the day. As consumers become increasingly reliant on mobile devices, it will be essential to optimize your brand’s emails for mobile consumers—especially when targeting younger audiences. Knowing when and how consumers start their digital days helps you understand consumers’ online habits and priorities. Incorporating these insights can help you create a messaging strategy that reaches customers when and where they are most likely to be receptive throughout the day.6 © 2012 ExactTarget | www.ExactTarget.com/SFF

  • 8. DIGITAL EVENING Just as studying morning online activities yields important information about the preferences and priorities of consumers as they start their digital days, examining how consumers end their days online also helps reveal how channel usage shifts throughout the day. In other countries we’ve studied as part of the SUBSCRIBERS, FANS, & FOLLOWERS research series, consumers tend to shift priorities from business to social as the day comes to a close. While this trend is consistent among youth, as a whole, French consumers are most likely to end their digital day just as they started it—with email. Considering that 78% begin their days with email and 50% end their days with email, it’s clear that email plays a prominent role in the lives of most French consumers. Still, many consumers follow the international trend and turn to social channels in the evening. Thirty-seven percent of women and 31% of men under the age of 35 report that Facebook is the last place they check online before shutting down for the day. Across all age groups and genders, the percentage of users checking Facebook in the morning doubles by the time the evening rolls around. Social media overall draws a quarter of consumers as the day wanes, and another 16% of consumers choose to look at news and entertainment sites. Even with this surge of evening social media activity, email remains the most popular digital evening channel overall. This is not to suggest that email is the only channel on which to focus your evening marketing efforts. It does, however, suggest that you’ll see the most success by keeping email at the forefront of your marketing strategy from sunrise to sunset.8 © 2012 ExactTarget | www.ExactTarget.com/SFF

Ninety percent are subscribers and or relieving boredom. Only 20% of French consumers say they check choose to receive emails from companies. And of those subscribers, email when they are bored, compared to 49% of people that use 81% check email at least once a day. Facebook and 41% of people that use Twitter for entertainment. Across other geographies we’ve studied as part of the SUBSCRIBERS, WHAT DO FRENCH SUBSCRIBERS WANT TO RECEIVE IN FANS, & FOLLOWERS series, the inbox is viewed as a catch-all for THEIR INBOXES? The most common motivation to subscribe to communications ranging from business to personal to commercial. a brand’s email program is related to monetary incentives—52% In France, it’s no different. While 42% of consumers say they use email want to receive discounts or money-off promotions, while 40% want for work, it is more commonly used as a means for maintaining personal to receive free stuff or giveaways. Though this is certainly the most relationships. And because 90% of the online consumer population popular motivator to interact with brands via email, this channel identifies themselves as subscribers, it’s clear that marketers are acts as much more than simply as a means of delivering discounts welcomed into the inbox as well. When asked how they use email, and freebies. Look closely and you’ll see that consumers are also consumers report: motivated to subscribe because: • Connecting with personal contacts (76%) • They want to keep up-to-date with a company’s products, • Staying in touch with close friends (50%) services, or offerings (38%). • Reconnecting with old or long distance friends (35%) • They are already regular customers of a company or brand (31%). • They want to receive early notice of new products (19%). In contrast from what we’ve observed in other countries, email is used for managing personal contacts even more so than social media HOW DO YOU STAND OUT IN THE CROWD? With increased channels. This underscores the cross-functional nature of the inbox as competition in the inbox from other brands, plus a heightened level work, personal, and commercial. This is good news for marketers— of subscriber selectivity and general caution when online, it’s imperative because consumers have so many reasons to go back to the inbox, that you understand what motivates your consumers. Subscribers the likelihood of email marketing messages being seen by consumers are looking for relevant, consistent communications that match the only increases. Many consumers even check email regularly throughout expectations established at the time of opt-in.

  • 18. CONCLUSION Email consistently dominates the French online consumer market, both in terms of reach and frequency of use. While consumers still look to email primarily as a way to communicate with personal contacts, this draw keeps them coming back to the inbox, increasing visibility of all emails—including your marketing messages. Still, Facebook and Twitter offer unique opportunities for cross- channel consumer engagement and brand advocacy. Maximize each social interaction, communicate with consumers in a way that is consistent with their motivations to “like” or “follow” your brand. When creating a cross-channel marketing strategy, remember that the same general marketing principles apply across all channels when it comes to relevant, engaging content. Consumers do not expect to see vast differences in communication from one channel to the next. Each message should reinforce your overall brand proposition while aligning to the unique culture of the channel—email is personal and transactional, Facebook is personal and social, while Twitter is for information gathering. When developing your cross-channel marketing strategies, remember that consumers do not silo their interactions with brands to a single channel— so why would you? By playing to channel strengths and ensuring that your communications unify your brand across channels, you can avoid recycling the same content, thereby building deeper, more meaningful relationships with your customers and prospects.
