Is there any way to increase the chance of having pictures display when people receive emails?

Here is a question a nonprofit had in Constant Contact's live nonprofit webinar today - Nonprofit Newsletters That Engage 

 

Is there any way to increase the chance of having pictures display when people receive emails?

There isn’t a way to prevent images from being blocked within Constant Contact.  If images are being blocked, that is because of the email program they are being received in. However, there are best practices that you can use to make your email more effective even with images turned off.  First, make sure to include a view as webpage link in your email so your recipients can view your entire email, with images intact in their browser. Also make sure to include descriptions to your image. That text description will show up if the image does not. That description will serve as an extra enticement to get your readers to click to view the images.  Finally, make sure to have your company name written in text and not just in the logo. If the images are blocked and the logo is not seen, the recipient may not know who sent the email.  Each of these steps will help increase the impact of your email, even with images blocked.
