When testing emails, you can examine different metrics.
How do you track, how you measure? How you use those measurements and metrics to iterate and build and evolve your email marketing strategy really says a lot about the work you’re going to be doing when you’re using email for marketing.
Spam testing is so important. Your email service providers will help you out with this. Sometimes the rules may change on you. So you’re going to be sending, creating, testing, and sending again. It’s going to be this whole process that’s a cycle where you’re going to be creating content, sending it out, testing it, seeing if it goes in spam folders.
What worked in the past may or may not work in the future. And it’s important to understand that. And it’s important to just be okay with that because spam filters are just trying to help make everybody’s experience with email better. And it’s your job to test, send, create and just keep going through that cycle.Back to Top
