The infographic shows what most experienced marketers know for a long time – all communication channels have their own strengths and weaknesses. Therefore, only by skillfully combining them in a coherent action one can increase the effectiveness of marketing campaigns.

When it comes to range and reaching speed, it turns out that SMS beats e-mail and push. However, if we compare the price of reaching one user – push notification is the cheapest, although mind that there’s still an expense of creating an application that will make those notifications. Although we can communicate most of the content by e-mail, we must be prepared for a low Open Rate, which may force us to send the same e-mails to the same group.
