How to set up send time optimization

Figure out if your ESP has an STO feature. If it has one, follow their documentation to enable it for your account. If it doesn’t have one, follow the below steps for optimized scheduling of campaigns.

  1. Find the most active day and time with respect to open rates and click rates for your email campaigns. You can do this by analyzing previous campaigns' performances from your ESP’s dashboard.

  2. Find out which time is the best open time for different geographies. You can segment based on geographies such as Eastern and Western Hemispheres, continents, regions, time zones, or countries, depending on the geographic location of your customer base.

  3. Create a concise report with a time and day that worked well for different contact segments and content types. Use this information to deploy future campaigns.
