5 Tips To Improve Email Deliverability

improve email deliverability

For many marketers, the ultimate question during a lead nurturing campaign is “how often should I send an email?” But if your email deliverability is low, your email frequency won’t matter. Deliverability is the percentage of emails that make it into a valid Inbox, ready to be opened. They don’t bounce, get lost in a Spam folder, or lead to an unsubscribe.

The rampant amount of junk mail and scam emails has led to increasingly strict standards for email deliverability. While this is good news overall, it can be tricky to navigate all the rules when you’re setting up an email campaign. We’ve put together a few tips to help ensure your emails aren’t incorrectly categorized as Spam. Follow these five tips to help improve email deliverability, as well as open rate.

Should You Switch To Single Opt-In For Email Marketing?

We’re big proponents of double opt-in email marketing, which requires an initial welcome email to validate a user’s email address and allow them a second chance to “opt out.” New subscribers to your email marketing list need to click the link in this welcome email to confirm they would like to join the list. After that, your email marketing efforts continue as usual.

If you’re sending emails to customers or leads, you’ve probably heard of MailChimp. They’re a well-known email service provider that facilitates email campaigns for businesses of all sizes. They offer helpful email marketing tips and a wide array of service levels to fit just about every business owner’s needs. Some might even say they are the “gold standard” of Email Service Providers. Another claim to fame? Double opt-in.

How Double Opt-In Reduces Cost Per Lead

double opt-in

As a consumer interacts with a brand online, they are faced with a number of places and ways to join their email list. Some may overtly opt-in through a subscribe button on site; others complete a transaction and enter a separate database. Still more may take advantage of co-registration, where they join one list and are given the opportunity to quickly sign on with other like-minded companies. But should all these emails be treated the same way? Some imply more permission than others.

Marketers can reduce confusion and weed out any less-than-qualified prospects by using double opt-in. This requires the consumer to confirm they wish to join the email list by clicking an initial opt-in email. Now that they’ve subscribed and confirmed, they are much more likely to continue to open emails and convert. This extra step takes a little more time, but can go along way to reducing cost per lead, and cost to conversion.

Lead nurturing email subject lines have long been a struggle for marketers. They’re the first thing a customer or potential customer sees, and the biggest reason they click to open your email, or send it to the trash without even reading your content or seeing an offer. They are vulnerable to screen size, truncating or cutting off at varying points depending on where and how you read your email. Tricky characters or emoji can render differently, altering your message.
