As a global industry, email marketing is expected to grow to as much as US$22.16 billion in value by the end of 2025.

Considering the massive opportunity this channel provides, it seems obvious that the quality of a business’s email marketing database should be high priority. Yet research shows that data quality remains a critical challenge for marketers.

46% of marketing influencers say improving marketing data quality is the most critical challenge to marketing data success. Gartner estimates that poor data quality costs the average business $13.5 million each year.

Bad data could be the difference between being a successful or failed business
