As soon as you've dispatched your email marketing campaign, the first question that will probably come to mind will be "How many people are looking at my newsletter?". It's only natural to want to know! For this very reason we created our Campaign Overview, which acts as a quick and easy way to learn a lot of things about your campaign as soon as they happen, without having to tackle different statistics on different pages.
The Campaign Overview allows you to see multiple charts reports pertaining to the performance of each newsletter you have sent out.
To see how it works just follow the steps described below:
A. Finding the Campaign Overview
1. Click the Reports button, located on the left side of your Dashboard page.
2. Click on the name of the campaign whose performance you want to view.
3. Click on the Overview option, on the vertical bar that appears.
B. Navigating the Campaign Overview
1. At the very top of your Overview page, the campaign name and type are displayed, followed by general information about your campaign (Subject, Sender, Delivered, Mailing List / Segment).
2. In the four boxes beneath the general information, the campaign's Recipients, Opens, Clicks and Unsubscribes are displayed respectively.
3. Look at the Opens/Links clicked by graph, containing statistics about unique opens and unique link clicks for your chosen campaign.
4. Click on the available Hour and Day buttons to change the time-frame of the graph. You can also click on the options Unique Opens or Unique Clicks to see the graph separately for each option.
Click on the "three dots" icon in the top right corner above the graph to send the information in csv format to your account's email, or to download it as a pdf (just select your preferred format from the drop-down menu which appears)
Note that the pdf option downloads the graph as it is displayed on your screen, whereas the csv option sends you the full data used to produce the graph as a csv file.
5. Check the Campaign Status pie-chart which showcases the number of emails Opened, Not Opened and Bounced.
Once again, you can click on the "three dots" icon in the top right corner above the chart to receive the information as a csv file on your account's email, or download it as a pdf. Note the the pdf option will download the chart displayed on your page, whereas the csv option will send you the date used to produce the graph.
C. A brief report analysis
Let's take a more detailed look at what the metrics described above actually mean!
The four boxes at the top of your Overview consist of the following information:
The total number of recipients of your campaign.
The open rate of your campaign.
- Open rate
This percentage is calculated as follows: Open Rate = Unique Opens / (Total Recipients – Bounces). If you have sent a campaign to 100 recipients and you have 20 unique opens, open rate percentage is 20%.
- Unique opens
The number of unique recipients who have opened your campaign. If you have sent a campaign to 500 recipients and half of them have opened it, then the Unique opens are 250. Unique opens do not include how many times a single recipient has opened a campaign - even if the same person opens a campaign 10 times it only counts as one Unique open.
- Total opens
The total number of the recipients that have opened the campaign. If a recipient has opened his campaign 10 times, Moosend calculates 10 total opens and 1 unique open.
- Open rate
The percentage of recipients who clicked your campaign. The number of unique link clicks is also displayed.
The percentage of the recipients that have clicked on the unsubscribe link included in your campaign. The total number of recipients who unsubscribed is also displayed.
The Campaign Status pie-chart provides you with the following information:
The percentage of emails that were opened.
- Not Opened
The percentage of emails that were not opened.
Your campaign's bounce rate (the percentage of emails not delivered due to a bounce).
D. Top performance aspects of your campaign
Scrolling down towards the bottom of your Overview will provide you with a wealth of information concerning your campaign's "Top" performing settings and characteristics!
