Analyzing Your Emails: 7 Key Metrics to Watch

Mar 20 1:29pm Email Marketing Tips
This post is the eighth installment of our new series, The Ultimate Guide to Email Marketing – an eight-week series that covers the fundamentals of email marketing. Want a sneak peek into the content? Check out The Ultimate Guide to Email Marketing. If you send an email out into the wild and don't review the analytics, did it really happen? Of course it did! But it does make it difficult to know what kind of impact your email had. Did a lot of subscribers open it? Did they click any links? Did they make a purchase as a result? To answer these questions and discover if your emails are helping you connect with customers and grow your business, checking the performance of your emails is essential. Like any other business strategy, analytics are the key to identifying success.  Plus, your email analytics can tell you different stories about subscriber engagement and the kind of content that resonates with them. With that kind of intel, you'll be able to discover opportunities to make improvements, deliver more value and increase the effectiveness of your emails. Interpreting the data from your email analytics may seem daunting, but don’t be afraid to delve into it. When reviewing your analytics, here are seven key email metrics you'll want to follow.  Don't feel like reading this post? Listen to the podcast adaptation below, or watch the YouTube video! 1. Open rates Open rates measure the number of people who opened your messages and provide several insights into your email’s overall performance, including whether your subject lines are effective and the best times to email subscribers. If your open rates aren't as high as you want them to be, there are simple steps you can take to try to improve them. For example, try emphasizing urgency in your subject lines to make them more compelling. Or, add specific details that tell subscribers exactly what they'll get in your emails. Your goal is to stand out in the inbox, so you need to convince subscribers that your content is worth engaging with. Low open rates could also mean that you're not sending emails at an ideal time for your subscribers. Instead of Mondays at 5 p.m., try sending emails in the morning or on different days. Once you find what works, stick with it!   2. Traffic To find out the number of subscribers going from your emails to your website, you'll want to review your traffic...

[bctt tweet= 73\% of marketers say email marketing is essential to growing their business. #DoMoreWithEmail ] When you think about it, email is really all about influence. We share content with our subscribers on a regular basis, weighing our influence into their decision to buy our product or service. Which is why we think following influencers is so important. The more you can learn and apply from them, the stronger your own email strategy will become. From content marketing gurus to growth hacking experts, see how these 11 digital marketers are using email in creative and innovative ways—and how you can apply their tactics to your own email strategy. 1. Nick Loper Chief Side Hustler, Side Hustle Nation Twitter: @nloper What's riskier: starting your own business or relying solely on your 9-to-5 as your only source of income? If you ask Nick Loper, it's the latter. Nick is an author, speaker and founder of Side Hustle Nation. An entrepreneur at heart, he's been through the ups and downs of starting his own business and now shares those learnings with his growing community. His content is a must read for aspiring side-hustlers and entrepreneurs alike. Why you should follow him: Many people use their thank you page to share more information with new subscribers. Nick takes it one step further and uses it as an opportunity to learn more about his new subscribers with a survey. By following Nick, you'll learn innovative ways to level up your email game, just like this one: Leverage this tactic to learn more information about your own subscribers by including a survey or poll on your email thank you page. You'd be surprised how willing your new subscribers are likely to share. In return, you'll have valuable insight into who your prospective customers are so you can tailor content to meet their needs (and make more sales in return). 2.

It’s also why the AWeber team has devoted its time to developing new features that will help you send more targeted emails with ease. In just two weeks, we’ll be launching new updates to subscriber segmentation and tagging that allow customers to send broadcasts based on tags, create more advanced subscriber segments and simplify subscriber management. Some of you have been waiting for these features to subscriber segmentation, and we are thrilled to announce they are right around the corner! But what if you’re not sure how you can use segmentation for your business? What if you have a smaller list and don’t really need to segment quite yet? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Here are 16 ways you can segment subscribers or start prepping your list for when you’re ready. 1. Send different emails to subscribers based on their skill level. Educational email courses are perfect for teaching others and incentivizing them to subscribe to your email list.

Send an email or campaign with an incentive/gift based on birth month.
