When you begin email marketing you start building a reputation. This means you want to make sure you are providing the best content possible in your emails and not coming off as a spammer.
According to Return Path’s Email Intelligence Report Q4 2012, 18% of permission-based email in North America never reaches the inbox: 5% is classified as spam, and the remaining 13% simply goes missing. While 82% inbox placement is not a horrible number, marketers would agree that there is certainly room for improvement.
Below are some fundamentals you should practice to ensure you’re creating a strong reputation when email marketing:
1. Follow the trust and engagement mantra.
2. Use responsible methods to build your lists.
3. Choose a solid email marketing platform.
4. Create engaging content.
5. Manage your complaint rate.
6. Be proactive about closely monitoring your reputation metrics.
7. Be transparent.
