Savvy email marketers know that the goal of an email isn’t to make a sale, sellout an event, or renew thousands of members – it’s to get a click. Your landing page and website do the selling, but your email needs to entice the reader and convince them to click.
But before you can even get a subscriber to click a link in your email, you need to get them to open it.
It sounds simple, but the 2016 Association Email Marketing Benchmark Report revealed that the average email open rate for associations is 36%. That’s 64% of your audience that doesn’t even get a chance to engage with your email.
If your open rates need a boost this year, here’s how you can be hitting (and exceeding) benchmarks.

“…Impexium has allowed us to significantly improve our processes and procedures. We’ve automated quite a lot with Impexium and removed a number of manual processes that we had before. And staff are very happy about that.”
“…very excited because of the possibilities that I see for NADA moving forward, the ability to give our executives the information, any intelligence that they need in order to help our members better…the ability to simplify the whole application ecosystem, removing unbelievable complexity and bringing simplicity to the application.”
“I found Impexium to be more modern, more sophisticated, more user friendly, more intuitive.”
“I like the fact that by using Impexium versus our previous system, we will be able to reduce staff’s workload. As a result, NAADAC’s staff will be happy, feel more capable and competent…in serving our members.”
“We wanted a partner that would grow with us and one that could innovate with us. Impexium checked all those boxes. They took us from outdated to automated.”
“You have to have a support team that communicates clearly, is a good listener, is patient and can really handle the problem solving…I have been really pleased with Impexium’s support. They are on-top-of things responsive…I know they will stick with me until we figure it out.”
