"Over the course of the year, the top email templates clicked shifted each quarter for the general categories. The emphasis/most clicked at the beginning of the year in Q1 was on email and account updates.

The volume grew by nearly 50% the second quarter with the emphasis shifting to password changes and security alerts.

The third quarter saw a slight decline of top 10 clicks by about 13% with the emphasis shifting to HR and health care.

And the fourth quarter saw a definite seasonal shift with 34% of templates clicked related to packages.
