Spam is a bigger and bigger problem nowadays. Recently Ralph Wilson, Paul Myers, and other Internet marketing gurus have written about the problems that spam is causing honest, hard working Internet marketers.
Actually, while spam is the fundamental root of our problems, the anti-spam measures that large ISPs and important free email hosts (like Hotmail and Yahoo! Mail) undertake are what hurts legitimate Internet marketers. Much like tuna nets catch dolphins by mistake, their spam filters catch us.
The SiteSell SpamCheck Tool is a quick way for honest marketers to make sure their emails are less likely to be considered spam by ISPs, Yahoo! Mail and Hotmail (which tosses you into their Junk folders) and even individual filters set up by an ever-growing number of recipients around the world.
Here's how it works...
STEP 1: Copy-and-paste your subject, but start your subject with the word "TEST" (without the quotes, in UPPER CASE) so that they know this is a test email. (If the subject does NOT start with TEST, they'll assume it's real spam and delete it). Here's a sample subject...
TESTCreative Email Marketing Newsletter #53
STEP 2: Copy-and-paste the rest of your newsletter and simply send it, exactly the way you would send it to your recipient, to...
You'll get a report back in seconds telling you how good or bad your email is, from a spam detector's point of view. You will receive a full, free report of all corrections that you should make to your newsletter, in order to stay out of the junk folders.
It does NOT of course comment on what you write - first, it's not that smart. And second, the actual content is YOUR business! :)
