Our email marketing software creates a report with detailed statistics about your business email marketing campaigns.

We can tell you:

  • How many opens the newsletter had.
  • Which links the customer clicked.
  • When the customer is on the website – which pages they visited.
  • How long the customer used your website.
  • How successful the email campaign was.

These newsletter statistics, alongside website analytics are incredibly useful for the development of your online business.
