When analyzing whether your email marketing campaigns will perform in specific circumstances, it is best to align your marketing initiatives directly with business goals. This means analyzing clicks and open rates and balancing them with tangible metrics. Such metrics include the amount of actual revenue received, number of qualified sales leads, and margin improvements gained on each email campaign.
Another way to be well prepared through difficult economic times is to examine past year’s results looking for trends or missed opportunities. Everyone learns from mistakes and email marketers are no different.
