What does my report tell me?

Sent: The number of emails that have been sent to your guests during the selected date range.

Failed: The number of emails you tried to send to your guests but failed to be delivered. This is an important number to keep an eye on because a high number of failed emails could mean that guests' email addresses aren’t being captured correctly.

Delivered: How many emails have been delivered to your guests' inboxes. 

Deliverability: The percentage of emails that you sent that were successfully delivered. This percentage directly relates to the number of failed emails.

Average Open Rate: The percentage of guests who received your email that opened it for the first time. One way to possibly improve a low open rate is by writing a subject line that draws your guests’ attention.
