More about this metric
Email Click Rate effectively measures the immediate response rate of an email and is often cited as the success (or lack of success) of a specific email campaign.
Although the official formula is to measure the ratio of clicks to delivered emails, remember that, to be able to click on a link, recipients need to open the email in the first place. An alternate measurement, that fine tunes how good your Call to Actions (CTAs) are, would be to look at clicks to opens.
As with all marketing material, the rate at which your audience engages, or clicks through, depends on the quality of your target audience and the quality of your content.
