Email vs. SMS Battle of the Heavyweights [Infographic]

Ding, ding, ding! The battle is on, with email in one corner, and SMS across the ring. Which channel is best for your marketing efforts?

Email may win in volume, but, according to the graphic, email open rates hover around 20%, compared with 98% for text messages.
