Are My Emails Landing In The Spam Folder Of Readers? Please Read This!

6 replies
I use Mailchimp for my email marketing. I recently created a new list and added some email addresses manually (about 20) to the list which I legally acquired from a Facebook group (review readers for my upcoming book).

But, I sent an email to these subscribers which required a response but didn't get any.

The campaign reports on my Mailchimp dashboard shows: 0 opens.

Did it land in their spam folder? How can I fix the issue?

These emails I added manually are people that showed interest in my book in exchange for an honest review and created a sign form page for them will kind of look weird.

I can't send emails to each of them one by one as it would be time-consuming.

Any suggestions, idea? I would really appreciate!

    20 emails? Too time consuming. Really??? You sure are a busy, busy man. That should take all of 10 minutes if you are organized, 20 minutes if you're not.

    Load them up into your gmail account, email yourself in the "to" section, add all 20 emails in the BCC area, separated by commas, type your message and click send.

    This is pretty basic stuff.

    Why weren't they gained from an automated optin form?

    So you did have a 'sign form page' then for email collection?

    Sending one to a friend or another email address you own may answer your spam folder question. If it lands in your spam folder then assume it did for them too

    Fixing the issue is a broad question because if is reaching your spam folder; is one answer. If it isnt reaching your spam folder;you'll have many possibilities to choose from to get answers.
