Some tips to better understand your Reports
Which conclusions can you draw from all this information? Thousands!
Delivery Rate will reveal if your Campaign is effectively reaching the Inbox of your Subscribers. If this number is very low, maybe you should do a cleanup of your Database, as surely many Email Addresses no longer exist.
You have a good Delivery Rate but few Openings? Go check your Subjects! They may not be attractive enough.
You can also compare Openings with Unique Openings to see if your pieces attract so much your Subscribers attention, that they open them more than once.
The CTOR (Click Through Open Rate) divides the number of Subscribers who clicked on your link/s for the number of Opened Emails, and the result is multiplied by 100. This will help you know how relevant your content is to your Database and the interest it arouses. Pay attention!
You are ready now to access and evaluate all your Automation Reports.
