Key observations:

  1. Fresh Relevance has automated the production of most of these figures. Clients can see their data in Reports|Home and Reports|Campaigns, and compare how well they are doing against the average.
  2. I've switched to reporting the sample size as page views, instead of customers, because that figure is easily available and it saves time.
  3. The usual warnings apply. There is a lot of variation in sales uplift across our clients - everyone is making money, but not equally so. And, as with all such data, there is room for error in these figures. The recorded results could be too high, because some customers were going to buy anyway even if we didn't send recovery emails, or too low because some were reminded by the emails but bought in a way that we couldn't measure. We do our best, but nothing is 100% accurate.
