Spending time to craft your email message, put in a nice design and draft an enticing email subject but not getting the expected email open rate? It doesn’t get read? Or worse, it is in spam box?

As a subscriber, we love spam filter. But as email marketeer, that’s the biggest challenge we face. In order to have a successful email campaign, we need to improve the open rate. And to have a good open rate, we need to avoid email filters and make them land in the recipient’s inbox instead of spam box.

Here are 5 tips to help avoiding spam filters when sending your marketing email


1. Build your own contact list

Don’t buy or rent email list because they never gave you consent and it becomes unsolicited email. Build your contact list with legitimate email address with basic profile of the audience. Keeping your email clean and high quality give you lower spam rate.

2. Never use free email address

Avoid using, or Show your recipients you are serious in the business with your company email. Anyway, registering a domain and setting up a company email won’t cost you much.
