Email marketing services are an excellent way for your business to professionally communicate with your potential subscribers and customers. Regular newsletters and advertising email campaigns allow you to grow your business effectively, and surveys give you valuable feedback.

However, email marketing has evolved to more than choosing the right service provider. You would need to comprehend metrics such as “CTOR” and Open % or just plain html do’s and don’t’s to understand why your email is reaching the spam folder or not getting delivered to your intended base! Albert Einstein once said, “Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts.” What Einstein had said might hit the very base of email metrics, for instance in which email do I need to look at open % and which email should I concentrate on or bounce%.
