The world has gone digital, and that includes all things marketing. You’re likely receiving far more cold emails than you are calls from salesmen. It’s not as simple as pressing send, however, and that’s where email deliverability comes into play.
What Is Email Deliverability?
Email deliverability measures how successful your messages are at landing in your recipient’s inbox. Why does this matter? If your perfectly-crafted scripts end up in the spam folder or don’t get delivered at all, they’re not giving you the chance to make a sale.
Your inbox placement rate can show you the percentage of emails sent that land in inboxes. Most professionals recommend a placement rate of 95% to be successful.
Why Experience is Important in Email Deliverability
Unfortunately, landing in email inboxes isn’t as easy as it seems — and that 95% mark can feel downright impossible at times. You need a few things to make sure the process works in your favor:
A warmed-up domain name with a good reputation
Well-written subject lines and email content
Lack of spam words in your copy
Domain reputation is where the extensive experience requirement comes into play. Every message that is sent can affect this score by leading to:
Other negative interactions
And once the domain reputation lowers, it can be difficult to get back up. This makes cold emailing sound a little bit scary (and it can be), but an experienced team can make it easier.
Experience brings about the ability to warm up email inboxes, to send messages in a timely, slowly-building fashion, to spot spam words and content challenges, and more.
The Consistent Risk of Cold Emails
Even with a great team, it’s important to note that cold emailing can still lead to lower domain reputations. This is why it’s recommended to use a secondary domain — if the worst occurs, you won’t ruin your main method of communication.
