mail chimp

GOod Morning,

I did a mail chimp campaign for a client to 562 emails and 362 did not open or receive it.

is there a reason that this might happen and how do you fix it? Or is there a better mail program out there to do this.

Sounds about right.

Many don’t access their mailbox everyday give it time, others would read your subject line and see it as not relevant, the rest might be going straight in the spam folder at local or network level. Did you run any MailChimp spam tests to check your email won’t get blocked?

Outlook express probably your main audience will have images set to off by default in emails. With images off the email can be opened and not recorded by MailChimp as opened.

Did you consider what your email looked like with images off? If it looked dull and uninteresting with images off that might be the reason of poor performance.

You could send it to yourself. Just turn of images in Mail preferences (on mac and ios)

It’s best to alway review email marketing messages this way. Anything with hardly any real text (not graphic text) has a far higher chance of being directed to a spam folder. Those spam tests you saved on would give you a lot of help here.

Also always consider what you think is an interesting email may be met with apathy or even anger from recipients with interests elsewhere. The figures you got I reckon are about the average.

It’s more to do with how many emails your ISP or mail provider will allow. That figure might somewhere between 100 to a 1,000 a day and not all at the same time. That’s why dedicated mail services exist like MailChimp.
