Week-End Trends: YOY volume growth slowest in 11 months

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 17, 2011. That’s up 2% week-over-week, down 4% from where it was four weeks ago, and up 6% year-over-year. That was the smallest year-over-year increase since last July.
