Week-End Trends: Fireworks to announce quiet summer period

Email activity and seasonal trends during the past week:

The Retail Email Index: Top online retailers sent each of their subscribers 2.6 promotional emails on average during the week ending June 25, 2010. That’s down 8% week-over-week, down 4% from where it was four weeks ago, and up 9% year-over-year. With the summer months now here, we should be entering a period of relatively flat retail email volume.
