Many email clients and most ISPs limit the number of emails that you can send at one time. Further, most ISPs guard against bulk emailing, as it is often spam. Legitimate services typically have strong relationships with ISPs and are able to send bulk email.

A good email marketing service such as Constant Contact, maintains strong permission policies and has an active anti-blocking team working with receiving ISPs on your behalf to ensure that your email is delivered.

For those of you using Outlook or another email client, mistakes can happen. Perhaps the most common mistake is exposing your entire list in the 'To: line', which violates all of your list members? confidentiality and exposes their email addresses. In addition, failure to include unsubscribe instructions, an unsubscribe link or a physical mailing address is now against the law.

Many services report the number of emails sent, opened, who opened, who clicked through and which links they clicked on. Reports also show new subscribes, unsubscribes, bounces and formal spam complaints. These reports help you track and measure your success, target more effectively, determine warm leads and improve your results over time.

An important note: What you don?t know can hurt you.

If your email is being filtered, check your from line, subject line and email copy and avoid using key words that might look like spam:

  • Excessive punctuation
  • Excessive use of 'click here,' $$, and other symbols
  • The words free, guarantee, spam, sex, etc.
