Default 10 tips for improving the quality of your email marketing

Hi there, I just want to share nice article here, if you don't understand for some point or each number of point we can have a discuss here, so here we go:

10 tips for improving the quality of your email marketing


The most frequent problems are related to IP reputation and mail server blacklisting issues. The following are our top 10 tips for improving the quality of your email and getting it into your members inboxes :

1. Create and protect quality IP and domain sending reputations. I will break this down into more specific subcategories in the following tips but this is something you should keep in mind with every decision that you make. If your email is considered spam and rejected or delivered to the spam folders by other ISP***8217;s all you have accomplished is wasting your time and money.

2. Do not use a shared mail hosting provider where other businesses are sending email newsletters using the same IP addresses as you. Get a dedicated server or outgoing IP address. Keep in mind a sudden burst of email from your new IP address is a red flag and may cause some ISP***8217;s to block email from you. If you already feel you may be in over your head consider using a 3rd party newsletter service provider such as Constant Contact or Mail Chimp. You can try their service by starting with their free 60 day trial offer.

3. Clearly identify how the recipient subscribed to your list. Use double opt-in confirmations to subscribe new addresses to your list. After they type their email address into a form they should receive an email where they need to click a confirmation link to confirm they really want to be subscribed.

4. Clearly identify how they can unsubscribe from the list. Make this easy! Include easy unsubscribe links at the top and bottom of your newsletters. Do not make the user jump through hoops such as figuring our CAPTCHA images to get unsubscribed. The last thing you want is for them to click their spam buttons to delete and block your email.

5. Remove email addresses that bounce from your list. If an email address fails with a permanent 5xx smtp rejection code immediately remove the email address from your list. If an email address fails several times with a temporary 4xx smtp deferral code you should consider removing the email address within 3-5 bounces.

6. Throttle how fast you are sending your emails. Configure your mail server to only open a couple of smtp connections per outgoing domain name at a time. Being a resource friendly sender can help keep other ISP***8217;s such as Yahoo from blocking your IP address due to opening too many connections at a time.

7. Sign up for the feedback loops provided by some of the big ISPs f="http://postmaster.aol.com/Aincluding the Yahoo Feedback Loop and AOL Feedback Loop.

8. Monitor your IP address for blacklistings. A good tool for checking your blacklist status is the MX Toolbox Blacklist check.

9. Create a custom PTR reverse DNS record for your mail server. It***8217;s best that it have a DNS TTL of at least 14400 seconds and is a name such as smtp.example.com or newsletters.example.com. The worst names are the ones assigned by some ISP***8217;s that start with dhcp, host, or some other dynamic looking generic name that will land you on a blacklist such as SORBS.

10. Create an SPF Record. Having a SPF record lets ISP***8217;s that check for it know where email from your domain should be originating from. As long as you configure your record correctly, it can help to improve the chances that your email will be delivered by more ISPs.

This tip in particular is extremely important. I can think of many times where I have been signed up for a newsletter which I then wanted to leave, only to have to go through so much hassle to get my e-mail actually removed from it.

Excellent tips, as email marketing is a marketing technique that requires great patience and monitoring in order to avoid penalties. Especially the IP stuff, where blacklisting is a great threat. Once the IP is blacklisted you cannot use it for sending out campaigns.
