You're not a Jedi knight -yeah sorry- so don't try too hard to get in with the spam words they're looking for.

But… I need some of these words!

Context is what matters. SPAM filters have become more sophisticated over time and can now analyze the context in which you use these keywords. Of course, if you need to write to prospects about inbound marketing, it’s quite a challenge not to use words or expressions like “traffic”, “marketing solutions” or “ sales”, just use them carefully, and find ways not to use them in a possibly suspicious way.

Chances are that a creative subject line might also positively affect your opening rate!

So, that’s it? No risk to end up in the spam folder?

I wish it were that easy, but spam words are not the only thing hurting your deliverability.

But it doesn’t have to be a hassle either!

In order to better the odds, the best course of action to adopt would be to:

    • Avoid all caps, exclamation points and using red fonts
    • Use a reliable ESP
    • Use links carefully
    • Keep your emails short
  • Not attach files
