I need to send an email to multiple Subscriber Lists at the same time. Some people are in 2 or more lists. Will they get duplicate emails?
No. We automatically take care of this issue.
How many bounced email addresses are normal?
The first mailing to an opt-in list typically experiences a 20% bounce back rate, so don't be alarmed if yours is in that range. Once you have sent your first campaign your bounce rate will reduce dramatically.
I get an average of 20% email open rates is this ok?
Yeah, its about average, it all depends on what type of email your sending: Government, design and real estate related emails usually have higher open rates then eCommerce or regular event related emails. Open rate is a measure of how many people on an email list open (or view) a particular email campaign. The open rate is normally expressed as a percentage. It is important to understand that the open rate is not a 100% accurate measure. Very few lists of reasonable size are getting much above 50% open rates from normal campaigns. Your list may have some specific factors that give you higher rates; if so, well done. However, don't expect to be getting 80% open rates.
