Recipients have too much to read, no time to read it
Some 306.4 billion emails are sent and received each day.
No doubt about it: The battle for attention in the inbox is real:
- American professionals receive an average of 121 emails a day.
- That’s per inbox. Now multiply that by the several personal email accounts people tend to have in addition to a primary work account.
- No wonder 68% of those emails aren’t getting opened And an average of 276 emails languish unread in inboxes at any given time. That’s an increase of 300% in just four years.
Plus, recipients are getting pickier about which brand emails they’ll allow in their inboxes. If they don’t perceive yours to be best in class, they’ll turn to your competitor’s better email and unsubscribe from or delete yours.
People have, on average, 276 unread messages in their inboxes. That’s a 300% increase in just four years.
