MyGermanShepherd.Org Periodical email template

19 Oct 2017 MYGERMANSHEPHERD.ORG said goodbye to the MYGERMANSHEPHERD PERIODICAL in the form of a free curriculum of progressively more advanced content that has served our subscribers so well for many years.

three-choices emailsWe now send out a simple email with three link choices of general content that is the same for everyone regardless of state of knowledge.

So now here we can maintain an archive for anyone interested. Including captivating data on free subscriber interest. 🙄 Check out where we start split-testing! That speaks for itself.

YYMMDD: Open rate - Click rate

171019: 24.0% - 6.9%

171021: 20.4% - 5.0% (testing sending frequency...)

171023: 19.3% - 3.5%

171025: 19.0% - 4.0%

171027: 18.7% - 2.5%

171029: 19.3% - 2.9%

171031: 27.6% - 13.8%

171102: 21.3% - 3.8%

171104: 20.7% - 3.5%

171106: 20.8% - 2.5%

171108: 19.3% - 3.0%

171110: 20.5% - 5.4%

171112: 18.9% - 2.8%

From now testing open and click rates... Because I always felt that there was a marked difference in engagement between those who subscribed before end of 2013 vs those who subscribed from beginning of 2014, when we had our first attempt at a facebook page and saw people coming from fakebook...

YYMMDD: Open rate - Click rate (subscribed before 2014) <> Open rate - Click rate (subscribed from 2014)

171114: 27.4% - 2.9% <> 17.8% - 2.8%

171116: 28.5% - 7.5% <> 16.6% - 3.0%

171118: 32.6% - 16.7% <> 22.7% - 10.3%

171120: 23.5% - 2.5% <> 15.8% - 1.5%

171122: 22.7% - 7.6% <> 16.8% - 4.2%

171124: 23.1% - 4.2% <> 16.9% - 3.0%

171126: 28.4% - 8.5% <> 17.9% - 5.3%

171128: 20.4% - 2.6% <> 17.7% - 2.4%

171130: 26.4% - 3.0% <> 16.9% - 2.3%

Wow, what a difference in engagement, consistently! And what makes this even more remarkable: Those who subscribed before 2014 (the ones with the much higher engagement) have had almost all the content that is being sent out - at this difficult time where on top of everything else I have to try to get us warm by insulating the thow asap! And yet they open and click the emails so as not to miss any of the new content that I add whenever I find the time. While those who subscribed from 2014 (the ones with the poor engagement rates that you see above) are both blissfully unaware of the content AND don't care.

No problem! Being always curious, investigative, I am just wondering WHY this difference in engagement, WHY this difference in interest? Can maybe you explain that?














This next one is for Pat, and anyone with a similar challenge:
Pat: "Hi, Topic:
Female GSD is very loving to our older male Manchester Terrier during the day. But during the night when they go down the hallway to the bedroom, she will wait for him but sometimes will go after him and they get into a tussle. Other times at night in close quarters she will do the same.
I haven't been able to figure it out. Unless this is payback for the several months he growled and snapped at her when she was 9 months old and a new dog after our doberman passed away.

>> I suggest you refresh how you perfom this - this will help, Pat - Let us know in the comments there?

For Eileen and anyone with similar interest: "why do GSD get bored so easy?" - I'd say because of this?
