Your email ROI reflects the overall success of all of your email campaigns. And, on average, email marketing has the highest overall ROI in comparison to other marketing techniques. It’s a whopping 4,000%. That’s a $40 ROI for every $1 spent on email. Talk about massive potential! But, unfortunately, there are many problems. For example, your email ROI is likely low because your emails aren’t even reaching the inboxes of your recipients. And you probably don’t even know they aren’t if you aren’t tracking them. Email ROI is all about deliverability. Deliverability refers to the number of emails that make it to the recipient’s inbox without the email provider bouncing it or marking it as spam. In this post, I’ll tell you about some quick, simple ways to boost the deliverability (and ROI) of your email campaigns.
