What causes emails to go to spam?

Email providers look for a number of factors when deciding whether to automatically send your emails to spam. If your on an email black list, you’ve repeatedly sent emails to recipients who haven’t signed up for your email list. It is true that email system providers will be much more likely to deliver your emails if you look like a reputable sender.  So how to you do that?

Always include an unsubscribe button so that a recipient has the choice to continue receiving you mails or not.  Any reputable email marketer will do this.

Make sure your emails are clean and well coded, they need to look like professional emails. 

Don’t have strange formatting or weird looking out of place fonts. The emails need to be easily readable.

If you can personalise your emails, use the recipient’s name.  Be careful as sometimes when this is automated you might pick up the wrong name and you will be straight into the spam folder.
