    Interesting out-of-the-box article I read recently:

    Email as an active mode of communication has taken a significant leap in the marketing segment.

    4. Tuesday Will Result In More Read Rates
    5. Remove Inactive Subscribers After Six Months
    6. Marketing Emails Should Be Attractive
    7. Low Unsubscribe Rates Are Good For Business
    8. Email May Land In The Spam Folder <<<

    The common thread through that article (I think) is....study the reader.

    Thanks @Graybeard
    They are very nice tips!

    For an additional information, I always suggest my clients to clean their list right before sending.
    And for clients's convenience, our SMTP service at Home | VIPLinkMedia is intergrated a list cleaner inside then our clients may send emails without cleaning their list.

    IDK. I am superscribed to some lists of interest and sometimes will respond (act).
    So some work. The nagging bullshit ones I unsubscribe to (if I really subscribed) and if they keep coming I spam box them (on my domain email client).

    If it is some nag register on a website I gmail subscribe (black hole) ;)

    I guess it's the most popular myth concerning email marketing. A lot of studies tell that it has an average ROI of 4400%. You can see that this niche is quite competitive, there are a lot of services that offer the same tools and features. It means that email marketing is still lucrative, but you should always remember that everything depends on you, where you have taken your email list, what services do you use to send your emails, how you prevent your emails from going to a spam folder, and so on.
