Insights on Sales Email Delivery Performance

Findings & Insights

Recent analysis conducted by our team on email delivery for sales emails unveiled an intriguing trend:

Approximately 63% of B2B recipients are more likely to engage with emails sent between Tuesday and Thursday, specifically during the 10 AM to 2 PM window.

Our evaluation tests revealed that incorporating personalized subject lines based on prior interactions can boost the open rate by up to 27%.

One significant data point to highlight is the dwindling efficiency of cold emails, with a staggering 89% being marked as spam or ignored altogether.

It’s imperative for businesses to focus on relationship-building and relevant content, ensuring that their communication is not only received but also engaged with.

Insights Analysis Methodology

Our insights team systematically analyzed and interpreted data across multiple vectors. Here’s a breakdown of our process:

Data Collection: We collected a sample of 10,000 sales emails sent by various SaaS businesses over a period of three months, ensuring a diverse dataset.

Time Analysis: We categorized emails based on the days and times they were sent.

Our findings showed that emails sent between Tuesday and Thursday, specifically from 10 AM to 2 PM, had a higher engagement rate, accounting for 63% of all positive responses.

Subject Line Personalization: We segmented the emails into two groups: those with personalized subject lines and those without.

Upon analyzing the open rates, we found a 27% increase in open rates for emails with personalized subject lines.

Increase % = ( (Open rate of personalized emails − Open rate of generic emails) / Open rate of generic emails ) × 100

Cold Email Efficacy: We tracked the journey of cold emails and observed that 89% of them were either marked as spam or ignored. This was determined by monitoring email status tags like ‘unread’, ‘deleted’, or ‘moved to spam’.

By synthesizing these data points, we were able to deduce the trends and efficacy of sales email delivery.
