    When sending an email message make sure the offer is relevant to the target audience!
    Message Recommendations for Avoiding Spam Filters:
    Industry experts estimate between 10 and 20 percent of permissioned email messages do not arrive in the inbox as intended because the receiving ISP incorrectly identified the message as spam. This presents a problem for marketers because revenue is lost and campaign results are inaccurate.

    Message Guidelines
    You may wish to follow these guidelines when designing a message. Please remember that these are general rules and do not provide a 100% guarantee that a filter will not tag your message.


    Do not repeat words Be succinct, try to avoid 'spam' words.
    Do not use all caps Keep everything in lowercase or Title Case if possible.
