  • Moving Beyond Opens and Clicks
  • TM Taco Bell
  • Email Metrics – Let me count the ways… Open rate Click-through rate Click-to-open rate Unsubscribe rate Bounce rate Conversion rate List churn …. Email metrics disconnected from business goals lead to…
  • …an ROI / Resource Imbalance • Marketers are: – Sending more Email emails (volume) Team Email ROI – Sending more Is frequently Huge! • Budgets are flat or down • No. of FTEs is flat or down Email marketing is generally considered to have the #1 or #2 ROI among marketing channels
  • …and a Marketing Channel Budget Tug of War Email is increasingly competing for slices of the marketing budget with channels that didn’t exist a few years ago
  • So How Did We Get Here?
  • “OCBUS” - The Basic Foundation • Open rates • Click-through rates • Bounce rates • Unsubscribe rates • Spam complaint rates “OCBUS” – Free inside every email software solution!
  • Measurement Mindset
  • Stepping Back - Email Metrics: How We Use Them Report Card Actionable (Backward Looking) (Future Oriented) • Testing – Which creative worked • How did our message better? perform? • Do we need more resources? • How did we do this • Are there problems lurking in our month/year? email process? • Where are we falling short? • Did we achieve our targets? • What do we do next?
  • Differentiate Process from Output Metrics Process Output • Open rates • Revenue • Bounces • Orders • Delivered • Demos/Downloads • Click-through rates • Sales-qualified leads Think differently about metrics
  • Corporate Balanced Scorecard
  • Balanced Email Marketing Scorecard (BEMS) List Growth/ Financial/ Health ROI/Bus. Goal Deliverability Engagement/ BEMS Relationship Message Level Conversion Campaigns/ Activity Time
  • Metrics & Management
  • Conveying the Value of Email …and communicating metrics in a meaningful way to management It is all about the business goals…
  • Executives Don’t Care About Open Rates Email Marketer Executives • My average open rate is • How much revenue did we now 23%. generate from email? • Unique click-through rate is • How has email improved trending up since the customer retention? redesign. • How has email helped • Deliverability is up at reduce our costs to Hotmail since we stopped communicate with using the large postcard- customers? style image. • What impact is email having • Spam complaints are down on conversion via other 20%. channels?
  • Who Cares About Which Metrics? Metric Marketing CEO/CFO Other Depts Open, CTRs High Low Low Bounce Delivery, High Low Low Unsub, Spam Conversion Rate High Medium Low/Med Leads, Revenue Medium High Med/High Cost Reduction Low High High Customer Retention/ Low High High Satisfaction Determine which metrics should be provided to key functions.
  • Email’s Impact on the Business • Core Business Objectives – Revenue, Avg Order Size, Margins – Cost savings, reduced customer support costs – Share of customer – Customer retention • Lifetime Customer Value • Engagement/Brand Loyalty
  • Social Media and Email
  • Social Network Emails in the Mix • Your emails are competing with social alerts/conversations • Negatively affecting opens, clicks and engagement • Increases need for relevance, personality and social components in your emails
  • Social Media and Email • Share to Social – Increased views, clicks – New subscribers – Share rate – Most valuable sharers
  • Social Media and Email • Incorporating Social Aspects Within Emails – Comments – User ratings – Top read, top purchases, etc. • What impact is it having on core metrics?
  • Using Metrics for Improvement
  • Benchmarking • OK - Broad industry benchmarks are fairly meaningless – Are you in the ballpark? • Better - Vertical/Peer-based are better – Helpful in speaking with management • Best – Benchmark against your end goals – What target metrics do you need to achieve your business objectives – Use data to drive improvement
  • Retailer – Simple Framework • Goal – $100,000 revenue per month from email • Current: – 2 messages/month – 100,000 emails/mailing = 200,000 – 5% click-through rate = 10,000 clicks – 3% conversion rate = 300 orders – $100/average order – $30,000 revenue/month 26
  • Retailer Simple Framework: End Goal • Approach – Increase mailings – Better creative, offers, Web site consistency – Increased segmentation/personalization • Forecast: – 5 messages/month – 60,000 emails/mailing = 300,000 emails – 8% click-through rate = 24,000 clicks – 4% conversion rate = 960 orders – $100/average order – $96,000 revenue/month 27
