How To Track Open Rates

Published by under AutoResponder Tips

TrafficWave.net AutoResponders are the perfect tool to Create, Send, and Track your messages. Whether you are sending followup messages to prospects, newsletters to existing customers, announcements, or special offers, one critical element to your success with Email Marketing is to track your open rate.

Tracking your open rate helps you see how many people are actually opening your message when you send it out. Knowing how many people are actually opening your message gives you an important view on how much impact your messages or newsletters are having.

Once you’ve sent your message out to your subscribers, your TrafficWave.net AutoResponder account makes it easy to track your open rates. Here’s how:


1. Log in to your back office and click “Campaign Manager” TrafficWave.net AutoResponder Campaign Manager

2. Select the campaign where your letter is stored TrafficWave.net AutoResponder Campaign

3. Place your mouse over the “Letters” tab and click “Review / Edit Letters”.

Review or Edit TrafficWave.net Letters

4. Click the Open Rates Button: Open Rate Stats

5. Click the “Show Statistic” button: Open Rate Stats
You can also use the options on this screen to compare open rates between letters, change the time frame, etc… This information can be a very effective way to find out if your readers are still engaging with your content. For more details, click the link titled “What Is an Open Rate?

There is no “rule” for what your Open Rate should be. Your goal should be to identify where you can improve your open rate as much as possible. Sometimes, a simple change to the subject line can do wonders to improve your open rate.

Quick Tip: Try personalizing your subject lines by using Personalization Tokens in the subject line. Your readers are much more likely to open your message if it is addressed to them, personally.
