In general, we don’t recommend A/B testing as a primary metric for evaluating the performance of send time optimization.
Because send time optimization usually increases email health overall, the benefits of using this approach compound over time. Split tests take none of the long term benefits of using send time optimization into account. At best, a split test will only tell you how much lift STO gave to a specific email.

Seventh Sense is a powerful email optimization tool, but we recognize it's not always been straightforward to use or easy to maintain.

For Marketo users with email lists spanning multiple time zones, enabling the recipient timezone sending feature on email marketing campaigns is a no-brainer. Without recipient timezone sending enabled, your Marketo mail blast sent out at 9 am EST will reach your west coast readers at 6am.
If your list consists solely of early rising CEO’s, this is perfect, but most data shows open rates peak between 8-10 am.
Wait til 9 am PST?

Do you feel stressed? You're not alone.
80% of marketers feel overloaded and understaffed and 1 in 4 say they experience "high stress" on a daily basis. Salespeople are stressed too. According to Hubspot, seven in ten sales managers say “challenging” is the number one way they’d describe their role.
I guess it's not surprising that some of the most common feedback we get from customers is that Seventh Sense makes their lives less stressful. Higher ROI from email is great, but its the "email insurance policy" that comes with sending email out over a longer time drastically reduces the likelihood of those "high stress" moments.
