    Clean your mailing list

    Tags: ,

    The main work is in pruning your list regularly to remove known bad email addresses, or addresses that are bouncing. If someone unsubscribes, make sure they’re removed immediately. Asking people to add your email address to their contact lists can help their servers recognize your email as legitimate, making it far more likely that it will be allowed through.

    Eliminate duplicate email addresses. If your email marketing service provider (ESP) does not do this automatically, do it yourself manually. Remove fake accounts, or addresses that were entered as a prank or are plain nonsense. Look for addresses like abcd@, qwerty@, test@, and any other common bogus user names. These are all entries that you absolutely want to get rid of as they are wasting your time/ money and dragging down your email sender reputation.

    Frequently monitor your list for “no opens” and “no clicks’ to determine who is no longer engaged and remove them from your primary mailing list. If you are reluctant to let go of these contacts, consider moving them to a separate list for re-engagement campaigns.

    Import your contacts directly from their online email accounts

    Tags: , , ,

    We now offer the feature to import your contacts from your online email account such as Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, Lycos and many more.

     

     
     
    To import these contacts remain in your account (advanced modee) and do the following:
    1. Mailing lists
    2. Add / import
    3. Then select “Import from an email account”
    4. Select the mailing list where you want to add the emails.
    5. Enter your email and password
    6. Click to import

    The emails should already be in the preview completely imported and you should get a notice confirming the import.
    That is how easy it is!
    But aren’t the emails that I am importing opt-in?

    As you know, in email marketing, all your contacts should be opt-in, so make sure that the emails you are importing, the owners have authorized  you to send them information.  Even if they are your close friends, relatives or colleagues always make sure that if you want to receive your newsletters they give you permission.

    I recommend that you send a small email from your personal email, notifying them that you would like to send them your newsletter, and that if they agree please respond with a simple yes. How easy it is!

    Recycle Bin

    Tags: , , ,

    Many of you have probably already realized that there is a recycle bin in your Emailbrain account. When we used to inadvertently remove files such as newsletters or mailing lists by mistake, we had to start from scratch again, and previously we could not recover these deleted files.

    So when we launched the new version of Emailbrain few months ago, we thought that this was not fair to you, and we decided to create a recycle bin. Everything you delete as your images, newsletters, databases and mailing lists will be stored in the Recycle Bin.

     Note that your deleted information does not remain there forever, every Sunday the content gets removed. So if I delete something by mistake do not hesitate to go to the recycle bin before Sunday.
