    Email marketing service provider, MailerMailer, has released its eleventh Email Marketing Metrics Report. This free report examines nearly 1 billion email messages, showing valuable data on click, open and bounce rates as well as trends in personalization and subject lines.

    The goal of the Email Marketing Metrics Report is to analyze and report on current trends, offer valuable best practice tips and educate marketers on how they can measure and improve the overall effectiveness of their own email campaigns.

    Equipped with interactive charts and an abundance of data, email marketers are able to easily compare their own trends against others in the same industry.

    Additionally this report reveals interesting statistics such as:

    • Click rates increased YoY to 3.2% and 2.9% during the first and second halves of the year, up from 2.6% and 1.6% respectively
    • Sunday generated considerably high open (12.2%) and click rates (4.4%) on average when compared to the rest of the week
    • The highest volume of opens occur between 6 and 11 am local time
    • Clients that sent emails less than once a month experienced a bounce rate of 5.1% while those that sent daily saw a much lower bounce rate of 0.4%
    • Personalizing the email subject line generated 0.8% click rate, while personalizing the message boosted click rates to 3%
    • Subject lines consisting of 4 to 15 characters generated the highest open rate of 14.1%

    “Email marketing is extremely measurable and we have a great amount of data at our fingertips,” says Raj Khera, CEO of MailerMailer. “This report is provided for free as a community service to help businesses improve their email marketing effectiveness.”
