    The delivery of your newsletters

    Tags: , , ,

    The delivery of your newsletters
    Some of the most common reasons why your email marketing campaigns did not arrive in your client’s inbox are:
    1)    Bounces:  These are usually categorized as “hard” and “soft”. A hard bounce means a permanent problem with the delivery, such as when you send an email to an address that does not exist. A soft bounce refers to a temporary problem, for example, if the recipient’s inbox is full.
    2) Content Filtering: The way your newsletter is written, has a major impact on spam filters. After all, we ourselves can identify a Spammer by simply reading the header of the newsletter. Every word that is in  your newsletter counts, this is why you should use verification tools to test if you newsletter is considered SPAM. By doing a spam test and making sure you pass it, your content will pass through the most popular filters. Emailbrain offers a spam test you can do before sending your newsletter out.
    3) Blacklists: When a message is received from a sender rated on a blacklist (example: those that produce large amounts of spam complaints), they are automatically treated as “junk”. Furthermore, whitelists are senders who have earned a reputation for making sends to clean ¨opt –in¨ lists. An incoming mail whitelisted usually enters through all the spam filters as well as testing and sends will be safe. So do not take chances and be sure to use platforms recognized as Whitelisted as Emailbrain, and ensure the success of your campaigns.

    Adding symbols to the Subject Line

    Tags:

    http://www.es.emailbrain.com/ebs_members/3989/ftp/pictures/keys.jpg

    All of those who use email marketing know that the subject line is a fundamental part of the campaigns  you are sending. Since the subject line helps you increase the open rate and helps you achieve your goals.

    One way to tell if a subject line works better than another is by using our feature A / B Testing. This test automatically detects which of the two test sends you performed were more successful and received more openings.

    Our marketing team here in Emailbrain proceeded to try what would happen if we included symbols in the subject line.

    It was concluded that some of the symbols used in the test gave positive results. These are the symbols that received a high level of openness: ♥ ♠ ♣ ♦ ☀ ☂ ★ ☆ ☚ ☛

    But remember that just because we tell you  that these symbols gave a high rate of opens, it does not mean that it will necessarily happen to you, always try to analyze the results. See what is best for your campaigns and likewise if you are sending serious newsletter it is not recommended to include symbols.

    What do you think of using symbols in the subject lines of their email marketing campaigns? Do you see any benefit in using them? Or do you think that would come to confuse the reader into thinking that it is spam?

    Leave a review or comment on our Facebook ® or Twitter ® page, we would love to hear your opinions.
