Using Twitter to find the best time to mail your Email Newsletter

twitter-time-to-send-emails

There’s an interesting idea on Toddle’s blog about using Twitter to find out the best time to send your mailing based on what time and day there is the most chatter about your brand, product or market niche. It centers around grabbing the RSS feed of a Twitter search, and running it through Google Reader in order to get some tangible statistics around post frequency.

I know online experts will fret over the best time to send an email newsletter until the cows come home, and the reality is that even if there is a best time then it’s definately different for every list, client and even product range, but this is still an interesting bit of insight and it’s very simple to get hold of, good work!
