Silverpop Worst Times to Send Email

  1. What Are the Worst Times to Send Email Marketing Messages? A tongue in cheek response to the enduring question: “What’s the best time to send email?”
  2. One of the most frequently asked questions in email marketing is: “What’s the best time to send email?” 2
  3. Answers: 1) It is different for each individual recipient. 2) Send based on past individual email open and click interaction. 3) Move away from generic broadcast emails sent at one time, to automated emails triggered in real time based on each individual recipient’s behavior. 3
  4. OK, but let’s have some fun with this question ..by flipping it on its head … in a not so serious way. 4
  5. “What’s the WORST time to send email?” 5
  6. 1. Saturday?: People are playing golf, shopping, going to soccer games – who has time for email? 6
  7. 2. Sunday?: A day of rest, many folks are religious about not checking email on Sunday. 7
  8. 3. Monday?: Whoa, people have too many things to do after the weekend … and too many emails in their inbox. 8
  9. 4. Friday?: People are trying to wrap-up things before heading off for the weekend? Checking email, not. 9
  10. 5. Tuesday?: This is when all of your competitors were told to send their email – so this is the most difficult time to stand out in the inbox. Forget it. 10
  11. 6. Wednesday?: Hump day. You kidding me? People are just trying to make it through this mid- week hurdle of a day. 11
  12. 7. Thursday?: Not quite …since your recipients are busy checking their email that backed up from the rest of the week – yours will certainly get lost. 12
  13. 8. 10 am EST?: Perfect for those east coasters just getting into the office. Oops, too early for those on the west coast and Hawaii. 13
  14. 9. 7 am EST?: Excellent. Top of east coast folk’s inbox. Shucks, but at 4 am on the left coast, definitely lost among the overnight spam. 14
  15. 10. Midnight to 6 am EST?: Hmm, too late for most and simply lost among the Viagra emails sent in the middle of the night. Try again. 15
  16. 11. Lunch time?: Possibly … darn, folks are too busy eating their turkey and Swiss sandwich to be able to focus and act on your email. 16
  17. 12. Late afternoon?: Like late afternoon for whom? Folks are either picking up kids from school or getting that presentation done before the end of the day. 17
  18. 13. Dinner time?: No one answers their phone anymore at this time – do you want to be “that guy” because of your dinner-time emails? 18
  19. 14. Anytime?: Yikes, looks like you can’t send emails at anytime as lots of subscribers will simply not be checking their email? 19
  20. 15. 9PM ET on Sunday?: Because that's when Keeping Up With The Kardashians is on. Via DJ Waldow, Waldow Social - @DJWaldow 20
