So why not follow our tips so you can stop wasting money on running paid ads.

1- Test Subject Line Score

This is extremely important.

You may ask why?

The subject line is the first line of contact. It will determine whether your email will land in spam, inbox or the promotional tab.

Of course, when your emails reach the spam, it is not only about the subject line. It is more of a warm-up of your server(in case your SMTP server is new). Yes, you can build your own SMTP server and send your own emails to contacts. Just like the training in our courses here! We can also build this system for you.

Now back to our main point. As we advised, testing subject lines is very important. It is like the front of your store. If it is nice, people will open it.

But how to know what subject lines should be used?

Go to a website called sendcheckit.com.

In it you can write your subject line and test it. They even grade it for you.

Let’s take this subject: Send 970K Emails Case Study.

You can see, it is graded with a full A mark with 94 points. Which makes this a very good subject line to send your emails with. 
Good subject lines will make readers want to know more about the content, so make sure you always send subject lines with a high score.

2- Check If your Emails will Land in Spam, Inbox, or Promotions

We all know what SPAM and Inbox are, but do we mean by Promotions?

Go to your gmail account, you will notice the above 3 tabs. Have you ever went to the promotions tab? Maybe very rarely.

Don’t get me wrong, Promotions tab is in your inbox. But Gmail filters certain email they mark as advertisements and send them to the promotions tab. You will not even get a notification that a new email arrived to your inbox.

3- Check Your Sending Score

The sending score of your email will check how “Spammy” your email is.

Go to mail-tester.com. Copy the temporary email provided by the website and send your test email to it then check your score.

The higher your score, the better. Make sure you always get more than 9/10 to avoid getting your emails marked as spam!

4- Send To Your Self

You sure have a gmail and outlook account. Who doesn’t?

This is where you can use these accounts. Just send a test email to your accounts and make sure you receive the email in your inbox.

You can keep sending until you send the perfect email that reaches your inbox.

Another thing you can benefit from this is by placing yourself in the shoes of your campaign receivers ( not literally). This way you can check the email and check if you would open this email if you have received it in your inbox. You can also check the email on your mobile and see how it looks as almost 90% of the recipients will check it on their mobiles. So make sure it is readable on this small device.

If the email does not look good and you wouldn’t open it, then change the email!

5- Write the perfect body and call to action

The last tip here is for you to write the perfect content in your email and end it with a clear call to action. Make sure to check it out and enroll. It is totally free and has very valuable content.
