Please give some advice...

Was sending cold emails via my Gmail, I started small and was making the inbox.
Slowly built up to to sending 50 lead gen emails for a pdf optin.

Now I'm hitting the spam folder.
Any software to check for deliverbility?
Best practice for sendin a lead gen for opt ins?
Should I sign up for G suite and start over with a new gmail?

Google is tough, but I know someone here is smarter than Google ha.

Please advise!

    In a previous thread you asked about AWeber and then about gmail...


    gmail is not an autoresponder....and those who believe they are smarter than google aren't very smart at all


    When I receive 'cold' promotional emails in gmail they go one of two places.....into the 'promotions tab' that i never look at ......or I mark them as 'spam'. My guess is that is what has happened to your 'cold' promotional emails.

    You need to use a in-house email blaster.

    a few questions though:

    are you using that email for personal or only business related emailing?

    is it an aged gmail account over 5 years?

    do you purchase products and use that specific email as your purchasing email?

    all these factors have an affect on how the rbots see/monitor emails that are sent out from their server.

    anything that is repetitive or with no other email transactions/actions/sending/receiving , triggers their filters

    also, there is a chance that other people seen your emails as a spam promo email and marked as such...then gmail bots watched all the email activities and then marked it as such, as you have been experiencing.

    also do you meditate or visualize?

    for those who read this and think it is crazy talk, even frank kern gave exposure of his truth of visualization and meditation in a seminar after he got his million dollar home in 2010-2011 in cali)

    pointly: you need an in-house email blasting software (software you can download either for free or paid)

      -Email blaster recommendations?
      -Personall email over five years old and the only one to make to the (test) high school's inbox.... now in his junk folder
      - Email will still go to my other seed Gmail's inbox... no longer to my friend's test HS school's inbox.

      I'm offering a pdf to other athletic coaches to gain a good email from them. The email is directed to my website to collect their email an get the pdf.
      The autoresponder is triggered by send in blue after they opt in on the website.

    Mailchimp is free. Might as well use it.

    I don't agree with the mailchimp recommendation....it is NOT affiliate friendly - does not WANT affiliate marketers. It's hard enough to get started successfully online....people should at least use the right tools.

      Solid point. Never imagined Mailchimp would be unfriendly to affiliate marketers.

      Thanks Kay.

    Ms Kay,
    What are your thoughts on using GMASS for cold emailing?
    You have seen my dumb questions and my current position (wink).
    You appear to be very knowledgeable in cold emails.
    Thanks in advance, Joel

    Don't take my opinion too seriously - I have never used GMASS and probalby will never use it. I don't do cold emailing. Have always built lists through ads or sites/landing pages where people sign up asking to be on my list.


    The ability to send the emails through gmail is one facet - the other side is what happens with the recipient. Will that person's email provider see your email as spam? Will the person who receives your cold email label it as 'spam'? Seems to me that second part is not something you can control.


    Just giving you my 'take' on it - I could be totally wrong about the 'cold emails' part as it applies to what you are doing.

    Try Mailshake or lemlist, both have a useful feature to check your "cold" email spam score before sending
