It’s Not You…People Need a ‘Fresh Start’
Unsubscribe Rates for email ARE THE HIGHEST during November and December. This is NOT because you are sending too much! This is because everyone does the end of year ‘purge’.
Don’t overreact to a handful of voices. KEEP SENDING!
FACT: Over 91% of the people who unsubscribe during November and December have not opened one of your emails in last 6 months!!! [both B2C and B2B].
As Mariah Carey Would Say…It’s Time!
The holidays are here now!
Email performance for this October was up significantly over 2020 and 2019 (for both B2C and B2B). Buyers are interested in your offers NOW! Don’t wait!
Subject Lines in October 2021 that used holiday themed ‘words/phrases’ had an increased Open Rate of 37%.
B2B Tip for Year-End: Using ‘2022’ in the subject line is lifting Open Rates by 34% in the last 2 weeks!!!! It’s all about next year. Stop using ‘2021’ in all emails.
National French Dip Day is November 12th. Seriously.

Highlighting these 4 additional ‘holidays’ in subject lines boost Open Rates by 24%:
Is This Annoying? Perhaps…BUT IT WORKS! (and it’s free!)
