Email Performance, using Data Studio
Email is a crucial marketing channel for many businesses across the globe and most importantly is free. As CPCs and CPMs are exploding, marketeers and business owners are looking for alternative ways to promote their businesses. Newsletter campaigns have become complicated over the years mainly due to the number of Emails received and the overall competitive landscape. According to Radicati, there will be more than 4 billion active email users in 2020, while an American worker might receive on average 126 emails a day. That being said, if you want to turn this channel to a profitable one and leverage the existing clients you need to be able to firstly understand what is your current performance, spot trends and finally apply changes on your Email approach.
For that reason, we have created a Data studio Dashboard which will help you understand the main aspects of your Newsletter performance. Compare Year of Year or with the previous period, get the top performing campaigns, but also measure the revenue impact by simply navigating to the Email Performance section of your Advanced MyDigitaLab Account. Following we are demonstrating the main features of your Email performance dashboard.
