#4 too many Links in your email
I don’t know the magic number but if you have a whole bunch of links to different websites that could and some times will make your email go right to spam

less is more in this area.

#5 Have an amazing subject line.
If hundreds of people are getting the same template email its easy to stand out. But if you are sending an email to your members then you want to catch them – Interest them- intrigue them – wow them. If not the email don’t get opened and life goes on with less action.

So here is the ideal way to fire out an email from you or your program.

1 write the email – Spell check and grammar counts ( unless your me ) and keep the spam words limited.
2 format it using formatit
3 test send it to your yahoo Gmail Hotmail and premium service provider email.
4 if it comes through on all of them and looks good then you can send it.

If your email is delivered to the in box the open rate goes way up from the spam folder. Think of your email being delivered, in the main folder as being picked to be the next American Email Idol. You haven’t won, but you not going home empty handed.

Some of the sites used spam words from ( wanted to give credit )

    Thanks James. I think everyone could use your tips. I never heard of “formatit” but I will definitely use it.
    It is good to have a scam list.

    Thanks for sharing your information.
