If you’ve ever deleted an email from an unknown vendor without opening it, you’re not alone 💯
Study shows that the average open rate for cold emails sits around 14-23%.
That can be pretty disheartening to the sales team, who have spent a lot of their time researching the prospects they are reaching out to. Or a lot of time crafting a message that will never be read.
