Before I thought that I had pretty good “email deliverability.”…meaning that my emails were mostly reaching my customers and potential customers inboxes. Well it turns out that I was wrong! I used this handy email testing tool to illuminate potential problems and as you can see in the screenshot below my score was an 8 out of 10. I guess that isn’t a terrible score but I’m not happy with “not terrible” and neither should anyone in business.
The tool gives you some suggestions on things to fix… I spent a couple hours fixing things and am happy to report that I now have a perfect 10 of 10 score!
Above: Look at that. All green check marks!
Below: My new score is a perfect 10 of 10. Now my email will be delivered to the inbox and not the spam box. 🙂
FYI, I wrote this post from the sofa area of the bean cafe in Friday Harbor. All Friday Harbor coffee shops should have a corner sofa area for those of us who like to hang around for hours on end!
The Bean Cafe in Friday Harbor is right next to the ferry landing. They have free wifi and plenty of wall outlets available. They also have magazines and some board games. Feel free to get in touch with me if you’d like some help with your email.
