If you bought email lists or extracted emails from google, facebook, yellow pages or anywhere else and now you are planning to launch your email marketing campaign then just stop and verify email lists. Read this article to learn more about email verification. It is the main focus of every email marketer that his emails go into the recipient’s inbox and get maximum email open rate but in fact this is a little bit technical and need to have some knowledge about why emails go into spam or never get delivered. If you know the reasons you can avoid it.
Why emails do not reach recipient’s inbox?
Let me briefly explain the reasons why emails do not reach the recipient’s inbox. The most common reason is that the emails are not valid, do not exist or have some errors. Sometimes emails are valid but they are blocked by antispam which consider your message as spam and ultimately send your email message to spam folder. There are many other reasons why emails go into spam which we will discuss in details later in another article.
Why to verify your email lists?
Many emails when extracted are not valid, that is why it is very important that you filter out the valid emails or buy only verified email lists and send your message to only the valid emails. If you send emails to unverified emails then most of your emails get bounced.
If you start email marketing straight away without verifying these emails, there are huge chances that most of your email messages will land in user’s spam folder and a large number of emails will never reach the desired recipient. This is because 20 to 30% emails get bad in one year for one reason or another. Some website domains expires and user don’t renew it or change the domain or email name. Sometimes employees leave the company so his/her email is deleted. There are many other reasons due to which many emails get invalid each month and they must be removed from the list.
What if you do not verify email lists?
If you did not verify emails before sending then many of your emails will land in recipient’s spam folder or never get delivered. If you keep sending then your IP address may be blacklisted and your server may be treated as spammer which will cause all your future emails to be known as spam. In short, all your costs and time spent on email extraction and marketing will be wasted.
