For many businesses, email is one of the preferred channels used by marketers to communicate with customers. In 2018, an average of 235.6 billion emails was sent daily for B2B andisruptors for communication as user behavior is veering towards more fast-paced conversations. As a result, if you miss responding to an email inquiry within 6 hours, there’s a high chance that you’ll lose the opportunity to convert these site visitors into leads or customers.

The GDPR applies to all businesses that deal with EU citizens, no matter which country the business is based in. Failure to comply can result in a fine of up to 4% of the company’s total revenue—talk about a huge threat to the email marketing industry.
