Screen Your Message for Spam

Whether your meant it or not, spam messages are not appreciated by recipients, including your subscribers. We know you would never spam anyone, but in case your email comes close with some words or formatting styles which may be confused for spam, we have a nifty spam checker to screen your message before sending. That way, you’ll know it’s safe to send without worry.

Our spam checker identifies any suspicious formatting or overused offer words, such as “100% FREE”, “No fees”, “click here”, or “risk free” that would cause a message to be flagged as spam. As long as your message receives a score below 5.0, you’re unlikely to be considered spam.

Just click ‘check spam score’ before sending your message.

Tip #1: Make sure that what you say in your subject line relates to the rest of your mail. Don’t surprise your readers with unexpected content.

Tip #2: Fulfill the expectations you set at signup. Don’t send more content than you advertise, or you may end up flagged as spam.

Tip #3: Keep your content relevant to the reader and you will reduce the likelihood they will perceive it as spam. Segmenting your lists can help!

Our reporting tools make it easy to decipher key performance indicators in your campaign, and then use these insights to improve on future sends. Get started by clicking ‘Reports’ and ‘View by Send’.

The reports dashboard shows you all the most important categories that help you gauge the success of your send. Here you can see how many of your mails were delivered, how many of them bounced, how many were opened, and how your subscribers clicked through them. You can even compare your results to your industry’s benchmarks for email marketing campaigns.

Emailbrain’s reporting tools even tell you:

  • Where in the world people open your mail
  • When they read and engage with your message
  • What operating system and browser they used

This information is perfect for further segmenting of your subscribers and building clearer demographic stats for your future marketing communications.
