The question came up on slack this morning about bounce rate benchmarks. What are the normal / average bounces that different ESPs see? Does region matter? What’s acceptable for bounce rates?
Bounce rate is an overall measure of address quality
Here’s your the chance for ESPs share the data from your customers. We’re interested in anything you care to share. But more detail is always helpful. Some suggestions:
- Overall bounce rate for 2018.
- Bounce rate for 2018 compared to 2017.
- Rate by month.
- Rate by region (US, EMEA, AsiaPac, etc).
- Rate by industry.
- Bounce rates that make you sit up and take notice.
Feel free to add any other numbers. This is just an informal poll of readers.
