Keep Your Corporate IP Addresses Clean
Effective communication is the lifeblood of your business. Whether it’s day-to-day correspondence or mass email marketing campaigns, ensuring your messages reach their intended recipients is crucial. That’s why we wanted to shed some light on an essential aspect of email marketing: the role of IP addresses and the benefits of using dedicated email marketing services.
When you send out emails from your corporate account, such as through Outlook, you’re using what’s known as a shared IP address. Your employees use your corporate IP address, and its reputation is influenced by the email behaviour of all these users. If many recipients mark these emails as spam, it can lead to the IP address being blacklisted by email service providers.
A blacklisted IP address is really not fun. Not only can it affect your marketing emails, but it can also impact your regular business emails. They may not reach the recipient’s inbox, landing in their spam folder or being blocked entirely instead.
Here is where dedicated email marketing services like Mailchimp or Constant Contact come into play. These services use a pool of IP addresses and distribute the sending of emails across these IPs. This method helps manage the reputation of these IP addresses and ensures high deliverability rates. More importantly, these are not the same IP addresses as your corporate IP, so your regular business email communication remains unaffected, even if some of the marketing emails are marked as spam.
These services also offer a ton of value, such as compliance with email laws, user-friendly email templates, comprehensive tracking and analytics, list management, automation, and more. These features can significantly enhance your email marketing efforts, making them more efficient and effective.
We want you to have the right tools and knowledge to succeed. Consider using a dedicated email marketing service for your mass email communication or email marketing needs and avoid Outlook and individual accounts. It’s not just about sending emails; it’s about ensuring they reach their destination.
