Keep it short
Image-to-text ratio: Keep your image to text ratio around 70-30, text being the favor. Also consider some email clients don't always display images by default, unless the user has it on.
Test your emails: Use the "Send Test Email" option in our platform, to review your campaigns layout and readability.
Avoid Spam words: Limit your use of risky words to minimize your campaign's chance of going to spam.
Symbols: Excessive use of symbols (especially in your subject line) can trigger spam filters.
Exaggerated words of phrases: Act now, Call now, Click here, Open Link, Get started now, Exclusive deal, Instant Access, Limited time (see more below)
Personalize your subject line: Subject lines are important when it comes to open rates, but they also reduce spam marks. Create a risk-free thoughtful subject so people do not quickly mark it as spam.
