Accessing your Dashboard 📈
You can access your Insights dashboard by clicking Insights from the left-hand side-menu bar.
The widgets displayed across Insights detail the key metrics of all email campaigns sent out via your EcoSend Broadcasts, Sequences, and Automated Messages.
You can adjust the time-period from the top right-hand corner in order, and use this to compare your campaigns over different time-periods.

Analysing and Taking Action on your Data 💪
Use this information to optimise your email campaigns. If you notice your key metrics dropping off, some steps you can take include:
Trying a different Subject Line with the EcoSend AI Subject Line Generator.
Adjust the frequency of your messaging; you may be sending out too many emails within a short time-period, causing email fatigue.
Or you may have neglected emailing your user-base for too long, so they have now gone cold and require more nurturing or a pruning of your email list.
Reduce the number of CTA buttons within your message. We typically best results with 1 CTA per email, maximum.

How does EcoSend process Email Bounces?
A 'bounce' event can happen for a variety of reasons, and depending on the reason, EcoSend will classify and process the bounce differently.
EcoSend categorises bounces according to the “bounce reason” — this is a response code that we receive for every email sent out.
Depending on whether it’s a soft or transient or hard bounce, EcoSend will block sending to the email address for a variable period of time:
Transient bounces (e.g. you sent a message that is too large, but the recipient mailbox is in order) get no timeout at all.
Soft bounces (e.g. mailbox full) get a 1-hour timeout.
Hard bounces (nonexistent recipient, permanently banned) get a 7 day timeout.
You will be able to identify if any users’ emails have bounced for any of the reasons above, by clicking the Bounced list within each email campaign's click tracking.
For a more technical explanation, we send out emails from our email-sending provider, SparkPost.
If a SparkPost email receives a 4xx rejection from the ISP, SparkPost will log a “delay” event.
SparkPost’s retry algorithm will re-attempt delivery for each message a certain number of times over a time period. For example, a message could be retried up to 6 times during a 72 hour time-period. The message will not appear in EcoSend as a bounce at this stage.
If the message is successfully delivered upon a retry, this will be logged in EcoSend under the message’s Received list.
If SparkPost exhausts the maximum number of retries (or maximum time period the message is eligible for delivery) and the remote server has not accepted the email, Sparkpost log the message as “bounced”. At this stage the message will be logged in EcoSend in your Bounced list and dashboard.
The type of bounce recorded will depend on the final 4xx response string from the ISP. This category is not typically classified as a ‘hard’ bounce.
If SparkPost receives a 5xx response from the ISP, it will log a “bounce” event and classify the bounce based on the 5xx response string. 5xx responses are known as “Permanent Failures”.
