Click-through rate (CTR)

Click through rate is the measure of how many people clicked on a hyperlink, CTA or image within a particular email. It’s important to note that CTR is a somewhat variable number, which can fluctuate depending on the content of your email as well as many other different factors, but generally, a healthy rate falls in the 15% range. 


If you had a 40% click-through rate, it would mean that for every 10 people who opened your email, four people went on to click a link within that campaign.
