I joined Constant Contact two days ago because my I became convinced that my old "bulk"emailer was causing too many of my messages to be caught in spam filters and not be received by recipients. Everyone email address on my list is from someone who either bought a product from me or downloaded a sample item.
I sent out 5500 messages and had 17 spam reports. Going forward, I'm going to put the "permission reminder" in the header of the email. I'm just concerned that CC is going to flag me as a spammer when all of these emails were downloaded from purchase reports. Is there something else I can do? What I think happened is that most of these people who reported me as spam were individuals whose message from me always got caught in their spam filter and the message sent via CC was the first one they ever saw from me. I'm hoping that the spam reports go down over time, but I'm concerned about how high they were in the first place.
