Common Tips on Avoiding the Spam Filter

photo_59386_20160104-1024x712Written by: eTargetMedia

Realistically, a majority of the emails that you send out to prospects will land in the spam folder. Even if your intentions weren’t to bombard them with pointless information, various email clients will automatically associate your emails with spam. In order to reduce the chances that your email lands in the spam folder, you have to understand some of the most common terms that land your email in the “void of no return”.

Spam Filter

Every email client has filtering software embedded within their service. Essentially this software is in charge of identifying trigger words and indicators within the content of the email that come off as “spam-like”. If enough trigger words are found throughout the email, it will send it to the recipients spam folder.

Email Blocking

Email clients will, at times, bounce an email back at the receiving server if the content surpasses the spam folder. This is known as email blocking, and is essentially one of the first lines of defense against spam.

Blacklist and Whitelist

Blacklist is a list of IP addresses and domain addresses that are collected once they are declared spam. If an email were to be sent from the same IP or domain, it would automatically be moved to the spam folder or even be bounced back to the receiving server.

Whitelist is essentially the opposite. IP addresses and domain addresses that are accepted by the email client will be stored for future emails. Be warned though that there are times where what should be a whitelisted domain or IP is blacklisted. This is common but can be easily reversed by allowing the domain or IP to come through.

Increase Your Email List Engagement with Simple Strategies

Written by: eTargetMedia

Email marketing has the potential to deliver high engagement campaigns that can give your company or business that much needed boost in traffic and sales. One of the most successful ways to increase the effectiveness of your campaigns is to avoid common mistakes that many marketers are adept to making.

Avoiding Segmentation

Customer data has been easier than ever to collect thanks to the availability of a variety of tools and the fact that customers are more willing to share their personal information. eTargetMedia’s email marketing campaigns ensure that you are sending the most relevant content to your customers. By segmenting your data into customized lists based on purchases, time since last purchase, and more, you’ll maximize your open rates and increase conversions. Remember, by thinking outside the box, you’ll gain the upper hand in sales.

Straying Off-Topic

Every marketer knows what a call-to-action is. It’s essential for an email marketing campaign as it should naturally push the viewer to look into the specific product or service. On the other hand, multiple calls-to-action won’t just annoy the reader, but they’ll kill your clickthrough rates. Focus on a single call-to-action and wrap your email around it. At eTargetMedia, we understand that even the most effective engagement strategies come from a basic call-to-action done by the business or company.

The Bottom Line

The effectiveness of your email marketing campaigns is dependent on the strategies that you decide to incorporate within your email lists. Millions of emails are floating around in mailbox’s waiting to be read. The competition may be fierce, but the right strategy could put yours over the top.


Growth of Email Marketing Continues in 2015

Email has become a vital tool for marketers over the past few years and 2015 is no different. In fact, this year is shaping up to become the biggest year ever for email marketing. A recent survey showed that the first six months of 2015 had the highest number of emails opened per consumer in history. This trend shows no signs of slowing down as more people than ever are relying on emails to help guide their purchasing decisions.


One of the main reasons that email marketing is so popular is the ubiquity of smartphone, tablets and other mobile devices. Today almost everyone has immediate access to their email on a device and typically will check their emails on a regular basis. People are shopping on their mobile devices more frequently than ever as well, giving email marketers a clear path to guide customers through the sales process.


The rise in email marketing also means that there is more competition in the email boxes of your potential customers as an increasing number of businesses are using email as a primary marketing method. You need to understand the proper tactics to follow in order to make sure you are getting the right message to the right audience.


One way to do this is to make sure you are using email lists from eTargetMedia, which can be parsed and segmented to ensure that you are only sending messages to the contacts mostly likely to be interested in your goods or services. In addition, eTarget Media offers creative services to help your company plan and execute to help your company create branded HTML emails that will connect with your audience.

Three Tips for Improving Your Email Append Campaign

Three Tips for Improving Your Email Append CampaignOne of the most effective ways to grow your list of contacts for email marketing campaigns is by doing an email append. This is the process of merging your database of customer contacts with a list of contact from a third party such as eTargetMedia to add emails to your existing contacts. This lets you reach out to customers who are already familiar with your business in a new way.

Here are some tips for getting the most out of your email append campaign:

Provide as much detail in your contact database as possible. Giving eTargetMedia as much information as possible lets us be as accurate as possible when matching contacts to email address. Along with giving us basic information like names, cities and states, make sure you give us other information such as addresses (including apartment numbers) and any relevant phone numbers. Any of these can be used as a way to verify a contact.

Target the right contacts. In order to send emails, you need to have a previous relationship with a contact. This doesn’t mean that they need to be your customer, but they need to have reached out to you in the past. This could be anything from emailing you for more information to scanning their card at your tradeshow booth.

Send a strong initial email. Keep in mind that these contacts will be receiving an email from you for the first time. Make sure that this initial email clearly states that they are receiving it as an invitation to opt-in to future emails and that they will not get additional emails unless they give you permission. State the reasons why they can benefit from being a part of your email distribution list.

Wonderful Subject Lines Drive Email Open Rates

Wonderful-Subject-Lines-Drive-Email-Open-RatesBy: Karen Waddell | VP of List Services, eTargetMedia

What’s the Point?
On average you only have six to ten words to entice a subscriber to open your email. Beyond 10 words and the subject line may get truncated; even worse your email may
get relegated to the trash folder unopened without the subscriber ever seeing your message. Your subject line needs to tell the subscriber exactly why they should open the email. Get to the point, briefly! Why are you sending an email? The subject line should be a teaser of what’s in the email message. The subject line is the primary reason someone will either open or delete your email. Be descriptive. Be clear. Be relevant!
Subject Line Musts:
• Use Buzzwords: Exciting, Wonderful, Upgrade, Now, Go, Happy.
• Keep it Simple. Subject lines should be 45 characters or less. Definitely not more than 60 characters.
• Ask Questions. Spark the subscriber’s interest and get them engaged with your offer.
• Use #Hashtags: If the audience is familiar with your brand, #’s will increase interaction with the email
and your social marketing.
What to Avoid:
• Words written in all CAPS.
• Excessive Punctuation!!! Avoid characters such as !, $, %
• Company Name: Don’t waste precious subject line space when your company name already displays
in the “From Line”.
• SPAM Trigger Words: Free, Cheap, Save, Guarantee, Affordable, Congrats, and Deals.
• Emoji’s & Emoticons: Many email clients do not support special characters and special characters may not render.

Three Tips for Increasing Customer Acquisition Rates Through Emails

Sending out an email newsletter is a great way to stay in the minds of current customers and entice them to do repeat business with you. But email campaigns are also outstanding avenues for acquiring new customers. Email is a cost-effective way to conduct marketing, but that doesn’t mean you need to expect low return rates. eTargetMedia can help you to find the right strategy to use emails to gain new customers.

Here are a few tips for utilizing email to gain new customers:


Make Calls to Action Easy to Find and Act On

When you send out a marketing email, you want people to buy your product or contact you for more information. Don’t bury this in your email — make sure that the call to action is easy to find. Instead of directing them to a form to fill out for more information, give them a link that opens an email they can easily send, or that immediately will place a call to you if they are on a mobile device.

Use High-Quality Email Lists

If you decide to use an email list from a third-party, make sure that the list is high quality and only comes from sources who have opted in to receive emails. eTargetMedia can target your email to specific audiences because their lists are highly parsed and segmented.

Design Emails for Mobile

The vast majority of people use their smartphones to sort their emails before they are read on a computer. If they open your marketing email on their phone and it looks wrong because it isn’t in a mobile-friendly format, there’s a strong chance that they will delete the email immediately before having a chance to read it in depth.
