According to a Q4 2012 analysis by Experian CheetahMail of its North American clients’ email campaigns, emails sent late at night bets to get good  results than emails sent at any other time of the day. This report basically highlights on a time of day/day of week which gets best revenue for Email marketing.

The best time and day to mail varies by industry, however, across all brands and industries is said that emails deployed on Saturdays and Sundays had the highest open, unique clicks, transaction rates and revenue per email. But yet had the lowest volume deployed compared to other days of the week.


Coming to weekdays, Monday had the highest revenue per mail, but Friday had the higher click rate.

The report also observes that the Email volume rose by 5.4% in Q4 2012 compared to Q4 2011. Unique open rates were up YOY by 12.8%. While, unique click and transaction rates matched those numbers seen in Q4 2011. Revenue per email increased from $0.13 to $0.14 YOY, an 8% increase.

Its also depicted that Saturday and Sunday had higher open, click and transaction rates, but much lower volume.
