Week-End Trends: Father's Day messaging behind trend

Email activity and seasonal trends during the past week:

The Retail Email Index: The top online retailers sent each of their subscribers 3.1 promotional emails on average during the week ending June 3, 2011. That’s down 1% week-over-week, down 7% from where it was four weeks ago, and up 13% year-over-year.

The Retail Email Seasonality Meter: Father’s Day messaging was weaker than in the past, thanks in part to stronger than usual Memorial Day messaging. Normally about 25% of retail emails last week would have included Father’s Day messaging. But this week Father’s Day messaging should accelerate significantly.
