Sales Email Secrets

What 18 million emails tell us about email prospecting

Did you know you can increase the download rate of your sales emails by 64%, if you send them at 5pm local time? Or that your open rates will be 21% higher if you send them in the afternoon? This becomes very relevant when you learn that most salespeople actually send their emails between 8AM and 9AM in the morning.

At, we analyzed over 18,000,000 emails and found the optimal days and times to send sales emails to increase your open and download rates. This excluded marketing emails sent, and looked only at emails sent by salespeople.

We also looked at subject lines and found the best practices which can make your email headline irresistible and increase your click-through rates (CTR).
