024 Inbound Marketing: KPIs & Metrics Overview with Drew Price of Grammarly

Show Notes

Drew rejoins me to share how startups and entrepreneurs can start measuring the success of their email campaigns. He explains the KPIs and metrics that marketers should use when evaluating their inbound marketing campaigns and stresses the importance of understanding the difference between click-through rates and click-through on open rates. He reveals common mistakes that businesses make when evaluating their email marketing metrics and how entrepreneurs can leverage automation with their marketing strategy. He also shares why it’s important to have a consistent theme throughout the different elements of an email campaign and how segmentation and personalization can bring greater success.

If you’re only evaluating things based on engagement metrics, such as opens, clicks, and unsubscribes, you’re really missing the heart of why we send emails in the first place – which is to support your business.
