Folks like to tout the importance of "engagement", don't they?
The hypothesis offered to us is that if we can get a customer to pay attention to us, the customer will spend more money with us.
Might be true.

Of course, we have the data available to measure engagement, don't we?
This image shows the average conversion rate for customers who click on email campaigns "x" times per year. The image illustrates an interesting finding ... those who clicked on an email campaign the most have decreasing conversion rates.
Interesting, huh? Those who are most engage have lower conversion rates than those who are moderately engaged.
If we multiply the clicks by conversion rates, we find that those who clicked the most actually purchased the most.
So, in one graph, we are able to both prove that engagement matters, and prove that engagement is highly overrated!
