These days, everyone is trying their luck in email marketing to get more visitors to their websites or affiliate platforms.
Even if you are just a blogger using WordPress, you wouldn’t want to send your important emails to your subscriber’s spam or junk folder, which is hardly seen.
Why your emails go to Spam or Junk?
First thing, we have to understand why your emails are getting delivered in spam instead of the Inbox of your subscriber.
Bad Domain/IP Reputation: Most of us use shared hosting for websites or blogs, and in that case, we get the IP address used by many other sites on the same server. Unfortunately, you can not do anything if they do anything terrible and IP gets blacklisted by SpamHaus or any other monitoring organizations.

Email Content: Yes, thats right! even your email content has any spammy words, then there are chances that your email will not deliver in Inbox. If you are not sure if your content has similar words or not, you may use this simple tool to scan your content before scheduling for sending.
