Forcing those opens
Most email marketers want to see their open rates go up. This particular marketer has come up with a new way to force recipients to load their mail.
I’m not sure how successful this approach is going to be. I can see how this might increase open rate, as people who are interested in registering but may not load images by default actually load images. On the other hand, how common is it to not load images by default? I tend to think I’m unusual in that I have images off by default. But if I was really interested in attending the presentation I would probably open images. But I’d be a clickthrough if I was interested enough.
Any thoughts on how successful this might be at increasing the open rate?
