Send plain text emails only.

Use Groundhogg’s plain text email editor only. This is the easiest way to improve your deliverability right away. Fancy HTML emails perform up to 30% WORSE than their plain counterparts.

Avoid too many links & images.

If you have more than 3 links in the main body of your email, that’s a red flag. Try to limit your content to a few links and images at most.

Send from an authoritative domain.

An authoritative domain is a fancy way of saying your domain name. That means if your domain is mycoolsite.com you should send email from info@mycoolsite.com

Send an email from yourself.

Expanding on the above, emails that come from you, personally experience higher deliverability. For example instead of info@mycoolsite.com send emails from john@mycoolsite.com.

Test your email with a Spam Tester.

See if your email is triggering any spam alerts by testing it with a spam tester. Just send emails to https://www.mail-tester.com/.Did this answer your question?
