Schedule based on Contact's timezone#18

C

if you want to send an email at 11 a.m., there would be a feature that would allow that email to get sent out at 11 a.m. worldwide according to the recipient’s time zone. This would be beneficial to have for both campaigns and automations. GetResponse is notorious for this feature. They call it “time travel.” Here’s an example: https://d.pr/i/LmB1Dd

Here’s more reasons this is a great feature to have:

A.) It allows you to schedule specific emails be sent out the same time worldwide for your recipients. If you want to test the best sending time for recipient’s on your list, you’ll only be able to test accurately with a feature like this.

B.) For example, say the ESP provider sends emails out in New York time zone. That means if you have a campaign you want to send out at 3 p.m., then the west coast will get it at 1 p.m., Europe will get it at 9 p.m. and Singapore, Taiwan and other Asian countries will get it at 3 a.m, with India at 12:30 a.m! Can you see how bad this would affect open rates? By the time those other Asian countries or European countries get to seeing your email (if they see it), 100 other emails are already above yours. Also, how can you test best sending times to your list when all the times are sporadic like this? You can’t.

C.) Now let’s say Automizy implements this feature. You’re in New York and you schedule an email to be sent out at 3 p.m. and you decide to turn this feature on. Now all of a sudden, instead of Europe, Asia, India and other countries getting it at those bad times where open rates are slim, they are now getting it in their own timezone. Can you see how much better this will improve your open rates? Not only that, but now you can legitimately test the best time to send emails to a certain group on your list because now they will get it all at the same time you you would like. It benefits Automizy’s SMTP with better open rates and it will benefit your campaigns too because more people are opening and seeing your emails.
