Some emails go to junk! What to do?

Hey;

I send links to some pdf to users after they opt in.

I noticed not many are returning to the site.

Then I checked and realised most emails go to spam folder.

What would be the best solution?

Thanks

    Check to see if they just entered the email to get your free offer, if they did you need to remove those emails as that will hurt your campaigns.

    Hey hey... That's not what I meant : --- 0

    Emails do go out but for some providers like hotmail, they go to junk.

    Ah....

    The user may simply have the account spam settings set on high. It may be no fault of your own.

    Instead of sending pdf, you can try without attachment mail, everything will be on the mail, you can add a link from where receiver can download the pdf file, then you can check the spam score before sending mail.

    Yes just send the link to the file as a lot of spam filters will flag emails with attached pdf files

    I edited my post. I don't attach anything. I send links (also because I can check who has visited the page from email or not).

      On your "Thank You" page, where you tell them you are sending the links to your "gift" in an email tell them to check their spam folder.

      Ask them to "whitelist" your email.

      If they want the PDF they opted-in for they will look for it. Remind them to check the spam folder so they do not overlook it.

      The other thing you can do (and should anyway) is use a "real" email address for replies so users can reply to your autoresponder emails to talk to you.

      When users whitelist emails and reply to emails it tells their email provider the messages are not spam.

      Many users will search for the initial email to get their gift, but you also want them to take some action that will keep future emails out of their spam box.

    Are you using your own email account to send the email?

    Are you on a shared IP?

    There are solutions that can help with deliverability.

    Things like MailChannels for example.
