Email deliverability is the single most important metric when it comes to email marketing. If your emails are not being delivered, then you are wasting your time! Stay away from spamming your readers and each time you send an email, make sure you are following the rules of Spam.
Once you are flagged as a spammer, you will have a long hard battle in front of you to get back on the white-list. Staying off the Spam list is easy if you follow the rules. Instead of reading through hundreds of blog posts and articles, most of the Spam rules are common sense. The best ways to avoid the Spam lists are:
When it comes to reading an email, most readers scan it for key points that may interest them so try not to make your email one long block of text. Doing this will only get your email deleted and thus, increasing the risk of being caught by the spam filters when you send future email campaigns.

If email settings do not show your images, then no content can be read and your email will look like one long white space. No reader will task action on that. All of your images within the email campaign must have the correct alt text and title text to ensure that content can be read.
You will also need to link out the images so that even if they cannot be viewed, they can still link to your landing or product pages.
Each email campaign will have a different purpose. You may want to drive product purchases, webinar registrations or whitepaper downloads. By hiding your call-to-action amongst a long wall of text or behind buttons that do not display will result in campaign failure.
You will want to include multiple links and call-to-actions within your email campaign. Include at least one link per paragraph. There is no such thing as over-communicating so don’t be afraid to push your reader into taking action.
Most email service providers (ESP) now convert HTML emails to plain text versions within the process of sending an email campaign. There is nothing like receiving a HTML email and not being able to read any of the content because the entire email is one big image and your email settings do not display them.
By having a plain text version, mobile users can read the email without having to wait until they can access a desktop. If you plan on sending a plain text only email campaign, you may not want to create a HTML version of the email.
Spelling mistakes (or typo’s) are incredibly common. Before you send out a test, make sure you have spell-checked your content. Spelling and grammar mistakes only make you look lazy.
A great way to avoid this is to create the email content in a Word document before you upload to your email service provider (ESP). This way, you remove any spelling mistakes from the beginning of your email campaign process.
