Saturdays had the highest open and click-through rates of any day of the week during the second quarter.
eROI says Saturdays had an e-mail open rate of 38.3 percent, and click-through of 5.4 percent, MediaPost reports. Sundays also had a good open rate at 37.1 percent, while click-throughs reached 5.2 percent for three days - Sunday, Monday, and Thursday. Fridays performed the worst for both open-rates and click-throughs.
When asked which day they would like to receive e-mail, recipients of business messages chose Monday and Tuesday more than any other day of the week. For personal e-mail, the most popular day was Friday - even though Friday performed worst for open and click-throughs - followed by Wednesday.
