"Up until fairly recently, email marketing was one of those things marketers did because they felt they should. The emphasis was on it being a cheap way to push a message to potentially interested parties."
In the last year, perceptions to email marketing are slowly changing and most marketers acknowledge that there is a better way to do email. It can be a very cost-effective way to market to a large amount of potential (and somemtimes existing) clients, but only if done correctly.
Best Practice Email Marketing
Increasingly, the focus of HTML email marketing is personalisation and relevancy to the user. The more relevant the offers and content are to the user, the more likely they are to purchase and the less likely they are to mark you as spam.
Why Should You Care About Spam Reports?
A user who marks you as spam or unsubscribes is saying your message is not relevant to them or they don’t trust your message. What could give you greater insight into your customers than that?
Also, the more spam reports major email and internet service providers receive and the more black lists you appear on, the less likely your emails are to be delivered. Not reacting to this can have a devastating impact on your deliverability and your brand.
