Email Marketing: What is a Pristine Spam Trap?

Email Marketing: What is a Pristine Spam Trap? A Pristine Spam Trap Is Not Good. There are three types of spam traps senders can email, but one of the worst ones is called a pristine spam trap.  Pristine traps have also been referred to by email marketers as true traps or honeypots because the address has never been an email address.  They are created by ISP’s, security companies, and inbox providers for the sole purpose of catching spammers. For example, ilovegettingemailsfromyourbrandsokeepsendingmeemails@gmail.com may look, sound, and feel like a legitimate email address, but let’s be honest, no one wants to type or even remember that address. How Do These Spam Trap Recipients Get On Your [...]

I am sick of the words “test it” in email marketing.  For the last 15 years, it seems that you cannot go a week without reading an article about the value of testing in email. Thought leaders, content marketers, vendors, and agencies have all banged the drum of just how testing can work and produce results. Unfortunately, in most cases, marketers haul off and test maybe one or two emails, see little if any change, and move on. Perhaps they get discouraged around how testing is supposed to be set up, or maybe they thought it would be easy and find that it takes patience and [...]
