Deliverability is the crucible of email marketing. Nothing good can happen when your email doesn’t even get to your customer’s inbox. eDataSource tracks and reports on deliverability with its Inbox metric, which nets out spam events against mailing quantity.
eDataSource sees the full range of Inbox Placement performance, based on our visibility into the email activity of 53,000 brands and their customers engagement with those emails. Email marketers who’ve achieved Inbox Placement rates of at least 95% are thought to be doing pretty well. Still, we often see Inbox Placement rates in the 80s for overall brands, and in the 20s, or even less, for certain individual campaigns.
