Opening Email Again Later up 80%

Mobile opens are growing rapidly. In the last year, emails opened on mobile devices more than doubled, and have increased 80% in the last six months alone according to email tracking and testing service, Litmus.  

A common assumption many of us make is that subscribers ‘triage’ or preview emails on their mobile device before marking the email for later viewing—likely their webmail or work account on a desktop computer.   Surprisingly, a deep dive into the same data we looked at for our latest market share stats showed otherwise:

  • Just 3.3% of users have viewed a single email in more than one enviroment
  • Users who have recently read email on the mobile will do so again 45% of the time
Does that mean, nearly 97% of emails are being viewed just once?
