E-Mail Marketing Open and Click-Through Rates

LM Comment: Click link for detailed rates by industry. Helpful data for benchmarking purposes.

July 6, 2009: summarized from eMarketer -- According to the "Email Marketing Metrics Report" by MailerMailer, 12.5% of unique marketing e-mails were opened in the second half of 2008. The figure is down from the first half of 2008, when 13.2% of messages were opened. How often e-mails were opened and clicked varied with the industry of the sender-and the size of the list. Messages delivered to small and medium lists had higher open and click-through rates than messages delivered to lists of 1,000 or more subscribers. Religious and spiritual e-mails had the highest open rates among large lists, followed by travel, general consumer and retail. Click-through rates for lists of over 1,000 recipients were also highest for religious organizations, followed by telecommunications and travel companies. A smaller list does not directly affect open and click rates, but mailings to smaller lists may be targeted better, contain more relevant content or have more recent subscribers.
