We've added a new feature to our platform recently to give your more insight into the number of people and type of people that read your newsletters. If you take a look at your delivery stats you'll notice a few new columns on this page:
Each delivery now includes statistics on the number of people who opened the email, the number of email addresses which bounced and the number of people who unsubscribed using the unsubscribe link in each newsletter.
You can also click through to get more detailed reader statistics. The graph below shows the days which readers opened the newsletter.
You can also see where your readers live, by country, state and even city. This example uses the United States, but the same details apply to all countries.
Some other statistics which can be quite useful are the devices your readers are using (mobile or desktop) and the time of day they read your newsletter.
Similar statistics are also available for your website visitors as you probably already realise. We've just integrated the tracking of newsletter readers with the tracking of website visitors so you can take advantage of all the goodness of our analytics platform.
If you have any questions, just reply to this email (if you're reading this as an email), or pop them in the comments below (if you're reading this online).
We currently have an issue with our network provider that is causing some email to bounce with the error message "550 5.7.1 Access denied". We are working on the problem now and it will be fixed ASAP.
Thanks for your patience and understanding.
NOTE: This issue has been resolved.
Sunburnt Internet Marketing is happy to announce the release of our new mobile expense tracking and accounting app, "Money Talks". We wrote Money Talks out of frustration from the lack of easy to use accounting apps on the market. We also wanted to ensure all our accounting data is validated correctly so we used the bullet proof double-entry model.
Each account can have a different currency, which you can also use to track your investments. Just make an account for each investment.
We hope you enjoy the app.
A little over a month ago, Google announced they were releasing changes to their ranking algorithms for mobile searches. Specifically they would be favouring mobile friendly websites on mobile devices.
Makes sense I guess.
Google's updates haven't yet put anyone out of business, but there has been gradual loss of traffic for many businesses without a mobile site, as the data for atu2.com shows below.
Now Bing have announced they will be following suit and making mobile-specific updates to their algorithm in the coming months. This shows that the trend is likely to grow, with mobile and desktop search results diverging more in the future.
Basically all this means is if you haven't already, now is a good time to get your website's mobile experience up to par.
It's hardly necessary to convince people of the importance of mobile support anymore. Well over half of the traffic to our servers comes from smartphones and it only increases month over month. Heck, most of us are at a stage where we wondered how we ever survived without our fancy Android or Apple smartphones.
If your website is already mobile friendly, then congratulations! If you don't yet have a mobile version of your website however, just send us and email at email@example.com and we'll work with you to get you mobile friendly on a budget that works for you.
This is just a quick email to let you all know that we've upgraded our webmail application and set up an address to make it easy for you to find. You can access the new webmail at
Webmail is especially handy for frequent travelers because sometimes you find yourself on a wifi connection that will let you browse the web but won't let you send email. You can also use it from an Internet Cafe if you can't get a wifi or data connection.
Try it out, and if you have any problems just let us know.
Sunburnt Internet Marketing is happy to announce that we have completed a major upgrade of our network, tripling our service capacity. Our old network served us so well for so long that we postponed this upgrade year after year. We haven't ditched the goodness of that old system though, we just gave it bigger wings.
Our software and hardware upgrades mean a more responsive system with more capacity for you and your customers. This is especially important as Google use website responsiveness and availability as a quality indicator and import factor for ranking search results.
Our customer's sites continue to perform well in Google and we continue to work behind the scenes to make sure our software is optimised in every way possible to get you the best search rankings.
We hope you enjoy the upgraded system, and don't worry, everything looks and works just the same as it always did :)
Dear Valued Customers,
Recently we deployed a new spam filter on our network which adds literally hundreds of new tests on your incoming mail. With well over half of all email on the Internet being spam, we're sure you'll notice the difference in your inbox.
Spam is a problem for you because it create a lot of distraction making hard to find important messages in your inbox. It's a problem for us because it clogs up our network and can spread malicious software mostly designed to send more spam.
That's why we're adamant about stopping it.
Below are some of the statistics on just a handful of the tests that our spam filter runs on your mail. If you have any problems with our filter blocking legitimate email, please let us know the email address being blocked so we can investigate.
