Shopify Dispatch Issue #151 - When to email, DIY SEO

Only you can determine the best time to send emails to your eCommerce customers

Sometimes doing what everyone else does is a bad idea. For years marketing companies have said that Tuesday is the best day to send emails to customers. So guess what happens?

Everyone sends emails on Tuesday and now your email is fighting all of the competition.

That's why Max Rice's article on testing when your best time to send emails is so important.

The only tweak I'd make would be to not send the email to 10% of your list in order to measure how those non-emailed customers buy (e.g. a 45/45/10% split). It could be that sending emails to either of the two days is suboptimal.

Or do what I do and send an email every weekday and not worry about which day is the best day and just use all of the days.
