Track how well your ads are doing
As your programmatic ads go out to your recipients, monitor their performance—especially how much revenue they're bringing in—by accessing your email ad reports.
You'll find these reports by going to the Earn tab in the top navigation, followed by Ads.
At the top of the Ads overview page, you'll see overall reports for all the emails you've sent that contain ads. These are followed by ad reports for individual emails with ads.
Here's how to read these reports.
Overall reports for all emails
The overall reports keep track of your:
Total net revenue
The total net revenue you've earned from all your ads to date. This reflects the net revenue after our 23.5% commission for providing this programmatic ad service.
The total number of impressions your ads have gotten to date. We record a new ad impression each time your ad is loaded and becomes viewable in your email.
That said, we exclude impressions generated from emails that have been automatically opened via Apple's Mail Privacy Protection feature. As a result, you might see discrepancies between the total impression and the total open figures. Learn more here.
The total number of clicks all your ads have gotten to date.
Average CPC (cost per click)
The average CPC across all your ads to date—which also equates to the average amount you've earned from each ad click so far.
Overall reports for individual emails
Below the overall reports are the individual reports for each Broadcast and Sequence email you've placed ads in.
You can click any report heading to sort your individual reports by that heading in either ascending (↑) or descending (↓) order.
And here's what each heading means 👇
The subject line of the email that contained ads.
The date you sent the email.
The number of subscribers your email was sent to (regardless of whether they opened your email).
The total number of impressions all the ads in the email have gotten. (Learn the definition of an "impression" here.)
The total number of clicks all the ads in the email have gotten.
RPO/M (Revenue per thousand impressions)
The amount you've earned for every 1,000 ad impressions in that email.
RPO/M is calculated using this formula: Revenue earned / Number of email opens x 1,000
Let's say you sent an email containing one ad. Your email was opened 2,000 times and you earned $10 in ad revenue from it.
In this case, your email's RPO/M is $10 / 2,000 x 1,000 = $5.
Total net revenue
The total net ad revenue you've earned from that email. This reflects the net revenue after our 23.5% commission for providing this programmatic ad service.
Revenue reports for individual emails
You can also view the total net ad revenue you've earned from any particular Broadcast or Sequence email by navigating to that email's report.
Here's how the report looks for a Broadcast:
