When do you send them?
Try sending them on days other than Tuesday and Thursday and email your customers between the hours of 2 PM and 5 PM.
MailChimp’s Email Genome Project reveals that more mails are sent on Tuesday and Thursday than any other day of the week so you might want to test sending emails on other days so you will have less competition. This will pave the way for increased inbox space and click through rates.
People are more likely to open their email between 2 PM to 5 PM, regardless of time zone, according to the Email Genome Project.
Where do you link your email?
Try sending your email traffic to a dedicated landing page because this is usually the one that has a higher conversion rate. Also, you might want to include social share buttons in your emails as this can also generate higher click through rates.
