Email Marketing Terms
API (Application Programming Interface ) — the language of communication of one computer program with another. By delivering requests and returning responses, two computer programs talk to each other in order to execute some common task together.
BCC (Blind Carbon Copy, скрытая копия) — hidden recipients of the letter, whose addresses are not shown to other recipients.
Caller ID — the identifier of the subscriber-sender of SMS messages. It can contain Latin letters and numbers without spaces.
CTR ( C lick-Through Rate) — the ratio of users who click on a specific link to the number of total users who open the letter.
Double Opt-In — the user indicated his email at the moment of subscribing and confirmed it by clicking on the special link in the confirmation letter. Advantage: a more interested and active audience gets into the database. Disadvantage: conversion reduces, because a part of the audience does not confirm the subscription.
DKIM (Domain Keys Identified Mail) — an email authentication technique that adds a digital signature to the email. It allows the receiver to check that an email was indeed sent and authorized by the owner of that domain.
OR (Open Rate) — the percentage of subscribers who open a specific email out of your total number of subscribers.
SB (Soft Bounce) — the letter returns because the email server is temporarily unable to deliver your message. There are two possible reasons: the recipient's email box is full or recipient's email server is temporarily inaccessible.
SPF (Sender Policy Framework) — an email-authentication technique that allows you to check if the sender's domain is forged. It is used to prevent spammers from sending messages on behalf of your domain. You need to add a special TXT record to the sending domain (sender domain, from domain), which determines the policy of allowing sending this domain from various hosts.
SQL (Structured Query Language) — a special language used for managing databases. With the help of SQL, you can set the structure of the database, organize the selection of data from it according to some specific criteria, delete data.
HB (Hard Bounce) — email addresses that do not accept emails due to invalid emails or an unexpected error during sending.
