4. Emailing solutions to analyze the statistics of your marketing campaigns: opening rate, clicks, A/B tests, etc.
Emailing solutions allow you to send emails to your entire contact base, but they also have advanced statistics on your campaigns: opening rate, click rate, bounce rate, reactivity rate, unsubscription rate, etc You can link your emailing solution to your CRM or Google Analytics for example, which then allows you to send even more targeted marketing campaigns (customer segmentation).
Some emailing platforms also offer to set up A/B tests on your emailing campaigns. You can thus test two different versions of your email. A version A is sent to one part of your audience, and a version B to the other part. Golden rule: it is preferable to test the change of a single element: the subject of the email for example. Avoid testing multiple changes because you won’t really know which elements actually had an impact on the performance of your campaigns.
