|Not Knowing This Explosive
Email Secret Can Kill Your Mailing List
by Reginald Turner
How are you doing today? I hope you are having a
very prosperous day. If you own an ezine or mailing
list, you know how important it is to get subscribers,
especially if you want to tell them about your products
and services, or you just want to inform people
in your mailing list about information that could
help them. It could be very frustrating if it seems
like your mailing list is not responding, right?
Let me ask you a couple of questions? Did you ever
send out offers about your products and services
to your mailing lists and it seems like your mailing
list is not responding to it? Did you ever think
that people in your mailing list wasnt responding
to your promotions because of your advertising?
Last, but not least, did you ever try to rework
your advertisements and the results you got from
your mailing lists remained the same? Well I have
some good news for you.
The products and services you offer, or the way
you advertise could possibly have nothing to do
with why it seems like people in your mailing is
not responding. The reason it may not seem like
people in your mailing list are not responding to
your promotions could be because of the following
reasons: spam filters, your blacklisted without
even knowing it, or you are not whitelisted.
Most of the people who are either in your mailing
lists or subscribe to your mailing lists will probably
belong to the following major ISPs: AOL, NetZero,
Yahoo!, AT&T, Msn/Hotmail, Mail.com, Earthlink,
and Comcast. The majority of these major ISPs
use high tech spam filters, blacklists and look
to see if you are whitelisted.
If you are into email marketing, but not familiar
with terms such as spam filters, blacklists, and
whitelisting, you might be asking yourself, what
do they mean? how could they hurt me? For your benefit,
I will be more than happy to explain to you what
they mean and how they could hurt you, especially
if you own a mailing list.
First, lets talk about what blacklisting is. Blacklisting
is a list of spammer IP addresses that the majority
of the major ISPs keep. If your email server
IP address is found on their blacklists, it could
stop your message from being delivered and that
could hurt you if youre trying to promote
your products and services to your mailing lists.
The scary thing about blacklists is you dont
even know if you are on them or not.
Second, lets talk about spam filters. Spam filters
is a piece of software that the majority of the
major ISPs use to determine which emails are
spam and arent spam. Lets say you deliver
an email to somebody in your mailing lists that
has an email account with Netzero. Before that email
even gets to their inbox, it has to pass through
their spam filter. If there are any words in your
email that causes their spam filter to trigger,
it will consider your email as spam and block your
email from getting through. The scary thing about
this is there is know way of telling what words
will trigger the spam filters when you are writing
your emails. This another factor that could hurt
you, especially if you own a mailing list.
Last, but not least, lets talk about whitelisting.
Whitelisting is a process of telling people in your
mailing list to add your ezine to their safe
or permitted email senders lists. Although this
process could be very beneficial, it could also
be very extensive and time consuming, especially
if you have a huge mailing list. However, not being
whitelisted could also hurt if you own a mailing
If you are like me and have a mailing list, you
dont want to have to deal with spam filters,
blacklists, or the process of getting whitelisted.
