Email marketing is known to be extremely cost-effective, with immediate feedback; there’s no other marketing platform available like it, including social media networks.
Running a small business? Are you using the Best Email Marketing Solution possible?
Several Small Businesses use personal email for marketing, because it’s easy and cheap. Did you know, using personal email for business marketing may actually impede your success? Why? Because each personal email account, (Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.) has its own set of email limitations.
Limitations that can make your account and your messages:
Flag you as a Spammer. When a large amount of emails is sent from a webmail address, like Yahoo, the emails look suspicious to your customers’ ISP. In addition, the safeguards that are set up by an ESP (Email Service Provider) to authenticate the email sender (you in this case) may not be set up properly because you do not control these domains (yahoo.com, Gmail.com, etc.)
Automatically be delivered to the junk folder: Sending several emails at once seems like a good idea, however all it takes is a few recipients to report your message as Spam. When that happens your incoming emails forever go into your recipient’s Junk or Spam Folders. Each free email provider handles this differently, to fix this, normally it takes a setting on your recipients’ side.
Less secure and lack privacy. Part of the service an Email Service Provider (ESP) offers is privacy from others. Sending bulk email using a CC (and I’m sure you received emails like that from time to time) exposes everyone to everyone on your lists.
Appear unfriendly and not lawful. How are you handling unsubscribes using a personal email account? With built-in marketing tools, most of these reoccurring actions, subscribes, unsubscribes, bounces are handled automatically, recorded and viewable for review. And the Can-Spam Act requires an unsubscribe method. Lack of tools for the Optics: Is your Gmail, Yahoo or Hotmail messages mobile-friendly. Do the links work, can you include images without going over the size limitations. Can you make the email look professional? How long does the link work within the email you send, hours, days, weeks?
Disappear; How do you really know what became of your message? Did your recipient open your email, go to your website, refer your email to a friend, trash it? Did they actually receive your message? You may never know.
