B2B Email Marketing Benchmarks

If you’re routinely reviewing your own email metrics, you’re off to a great start—and even better if you’re comparing your data year over year. But measuring your own data is just the first step. Without benchmarks to compare your numbers to, how do you know if what you’re doing is truly successful? 

That’s why we like to take a twice-yearly look into email marketing metrics compiled by our emfluence Marketing Platform users. Compiling masses of data on who is sending what and how it’s performing provides a point of reference for your campaigns so that you can evaluate how your email marketing metrics compare to others in: 

Each of these reports compiles the unique open rate (unique views divided by total recipients), click rate (total clicks divided by total recipients), click-to-open rates (unique clicks divided by unique views), bounce rates (percentage of hard or soft bounces from total recipients), unsubscribe rate (number of people who unsubscribed out of total recipients), and complaint rate (total number of spam complaints in total recipients). 

B2B Marketing Automation Software

Success in B2B digital marketing is fueled by consistent and sustainable growth, which can only be achieved by generating brand awareness as an industry thought leader, capturing prospects’ information early, and optimizing the process in which a prospect becomes a customer. Marketing automation, CRM database integration, and email are some of the ways the emfluence Marketing Platform provides results for our clients. Set up is easy and tracking is even easier, which frees up even more time for strategizing!
