Chart of the Day: 2017 global email benchmark report

It's that time of year!

2017 Global Email Benchmark Report

We have up-to-date email marketing statistics from the 2017 GLobal Email Bench mark Report from Sendgrid, best of all it's broken-down by industry. Here the statistics are taken from 2016 vs 2017 (although remember that 2017 isn't finished yet). But it does give a good indication of where we are in regards to industry standards. So, run your reports and see where you stand against the industry standards.

So, fire up your ESP, run your reports and see where you stand against the industry standards. You could be doing better than you think. If not it could be time to make all those improvements you've always wanted to make.

I am the Email Marketing Manager for Smart Insights. I manage all our email marketing and our automation platform. I get very excited about all things email because I'm just a #EmailGeekUK. I was born and bred in South Africa and have over 16 years experience in web development and digital marketing. When I'm not being an email geek, I spend my time with my husband, two sons and our menagerie of pets.
