In this computer age, email continues to be an efficient means of communication, allowing you to conveniently send a message to anyone across the world and the person to receive it in the shortest time possible. An email is personal and addressed directly to the receiver, which means free, fast and secure communication.
Statistics from Radicati Group show that in 2018 alone, over 281 billion (!) emails have been sent, with the count of email accounts rising to 3.8 billion, and an average person receiving and sending 40 emails per day. With such a stream of emails, very few people will spare the time to actually go through every email received every day, and so the unread emails pile up.
This issue has been reducing the efficiency of emails, with lots of emails being delivered but never opened. And if your recipient never opens the email, the number of leads generated via email will continue to fall. So how can you know if your email made the cut and got opened?
