Click-Through Rate (CTR): The Action Indicator
The “Click-Through Rate” or CTR is like the heartbeat of your email campaign, giving you a clear indication of how many people are not just opening your emails, but also engaging with them by clicking on the links within.
Imagine you’ve built a bridge (your email), and the CTR tells you how many people decided to cross it to reach the destination (your website, a product page, or any other link you included).
What’s a Good CTR?
You might be asking, “What CTR should I aim for?” As a ballpark figure, a CTR between 2-3% is generally considered decent, but this can vary based on the industry, the type of email, and your specific audience.
Tip: To improve your CTR, make sure your emails have a clear, compelling call to action.
