You’ve put together a fantastic email that you’re sure will drive great engagement with your subscribers, but after it goes out, you’re a bit disappointed with the low open rate. You know that other brands have resent the same email to people that didn’t open previously and you’re wondering whether this is a best practice?

Klaviyo’s deliverability and compliance experts do not recommend using this tactic as it’s not considered to be a best practice within the industry. If you resend the same campaign to folks that didn’t open before, these customers are likely unengaged. Repeated sending to this group over time can damage your sender reputation and effect your ability to hit the inbox. Instead, think about whether you’re sending the right message to the right group of people!

If the you’re getting pushback from your team to resend to your non-openers, you can create a segment of these customers for targeting. Be sure to flag to your team that this is not the recommended best practice!
