Can someone explain what the "engagement score" under the Email Program dashboards mean and how it's calculated? I just sent out an email and our engagement score is 38 but only has 7 opens.
Engagement score is an algorithm that we run to determine how engaged your target audience is. It is based on opens, clicks, opt-outs, and other factors. a score of 50 is average. So 38 is a below average score.
Only two metrics I see in the dasboard, other than Engagement score, is Delivered (130) and Opened (8). So your'e saying the score of 38 somehow is created from these two numbers? Also, a lot of emails were not delivered due to bounces, maybe that played a part too?
Marketo says that 50 is the threshold over which an email is good, and under which an email is not good. My experience is that things are slightly more complex. A few things have to be factored in:
Based on these factors, I tend to say to my customers that on a cold target in an old fashion industry, a code of 40 is a good one. On the contrary, on a target of engaged geeks, I would expect a minimum of 60/65.
