Email is one of the most proven sales and marketing channels that convert towards a purchase. In 2020, the average email open rate was 18.0%, average click-through rate: 2.6%, and average purchase rate: 1.23%. Depending on the size of your audience, a weekly or bi-weekly newsletter seems to be a good, reliable source of revenue.
Not every email marketing content is equal, though. In addition to being well-targeted towards your segmented audience (Klaviyo is great for audience segmentation), it needs to be clear, concise, and appealing. The email subject, overall email topic, and call to action buttons are critical pieces contributing to the campaign’s success.
