SPAM words can really hurt your email marketing. Therefore, it’s obvious we need to avoid them in order to succeed in email marketing. In this post, you will find the exact words which make your email sound like a SPAM mail. But first, what exactly is SPAM?
What is SPAM?
SPAM is an attempt to send a copy of an email to a massive number of email IDs. It feels like forcing the message on people who did not opt to receive them in the first place. SPAMMING is usually commercial advertising for dubious products or some get rich quick schemes.
Therefore, it’s important to have that little unsubscribe button at the end of every email you send to your list. If they don’t want to see your email they are free to opt-out of it. Don’t ever force people to receive your emails because that is what we call SPAMMING.
Pro Tip: If you have an email list of 10 thousand subscribers, don’t send them an email just at once. Send them the email in small chunks. That’s how you can avoid looking like a SPAMMER.
