Email marketing can be a boon or a bane; it all depends on how seriously you take your deliverability game. To set you on the path to email enlightenment, Spamhaus recently launched an “Email Deliverability 101” e-book that everyone who is anyone in the email industry is talking about. This handy guide covers everything from email authentication to the importance of bounce handling and subscriber segmentation. It even debunks the perception that sending emails to purchased lists is a good idea. The e-book aims to educate marketers on the art of crafting emails that are delivered to the intended inbox instead of getting sent to the spam folder or being blocked, subsequently damaging their credibility. With practical tips and a lighthearted tone, this e-book is a must-read for everyone who has ever sent an email, or at least for those who want their emails to be opened.
