Results are based on more than deliverability. In order to achieve the maximum return on investment, we recommend using high quality email creatives with professional content geared toward your target audience. Beyond that, we can only guarantee a 100% delivery rate - the rest is up to you and the strength of your message.
A white-listed IP is another name for a trusted sender. Emails coming from these IPs are considered spam-free and are not sent to your junk folder.
For optimal results, use both HTML and text versions, although if you do not have a text version we will still deploy your email. Text versions are desireable to ensure individuals without the capability to view HTML emails can still read your message.
All of the emails in our database are opt-in and CAN-SPAM compliant, but that is only half the battle. We urge our clients to read the FTC’s guidelines on CAN-SPAM compliance when writing their email creative to avoid potential pitfalls.
Yes. However, we can only guarantee 100% deliverability if we deploy the campaign for you.
Remember that people see hundreds of emails a day, and yours needs to be unique and stand out. In general, use bright yet professional designs. Use eye-catching (but not misleading) subject lines, and most importantly, include a strong call to action. What do you want your audience to do after opening? What are the goals of your campaign?
After we deploy your email campaign, you’ll receive a detailed analytics report stating how many emails were deployed, how many were delivered, the amount of opens, the total clicks within those opens, as well as the click through rates with 48-72 hours.

Email prospecting works well for branding, capturing clicks, and some impulse type purchases. It is generally not an effective direct marketing tool, and it does not sell products or services cost effectively.
The truth about Performance: A subscriber file - a list of people who subscribe to specific magazines, or have membership in the same organization - will always be more expensive, but out-perform a compiled list of individuals with similar demographic characteristics. Open and click rates vary, testing is always the key. Judge your provider based on the ability to deliver and perform consistently, and scale reliably.
The truth about Emails Deployed versus Emails Delivered: No emailer can guarantee a specific number of emails will be delivered, so most (like Exact Data) calculate average delivery rate, then over email to compensate. Keep this in mind when you purchase emails for output and self-emailing.
The true value of email is versatility: Not only is email effective for prospecting, it can be used to match individuals to social media profiles (for targeting purposes), and is the only commercially available, unique identifier in a contact (name and address).
