    I'm about to send out some personalized emails tonight to business owners using a mass email program. Any advice on how to make them not get sent to their spam folders? I have it set so that the program sends an email once every 30 seconds - I don't know if that helps or not. Can I include links in the email? Any advice is appreciated.

    Getting a great inbox rate is not so easy, there are so many elements in the equation that I could write an entire book about this.

    Wich program you are using (desktop, self hosted)? How many emails are in your list? How do you gathered these emails, this list is cleaned and without bounces? Do have developed a good IP warmup? Do you use a dedicated server, shared hosting? Are you split testing?

    Sorry, but with the amount of information you have provided it's impossible to give you a straight answer and advice.

    I'm using Atomic Mail Sender. I have a small list of only a few hundred. These emails were gathered from a combination of using Scrapebox's "grab email" function in a list of websites as well as Scrapebox's WhoIs email function. I'll be running the program over night from my desktop computer and I'll configure it to send only 1 email per minute. The email I will use is my website email info@mywebsiteURL.com which is hosted on GoDaddy. The email will be a few paragraphs long and contain 1 or 2 links.

    Keep it short and sweet. Don't use trigger words (free,trial,click,join...etc). Make it personalized and make the subject line short and enticing. Remember ALOT of emails are viewed on mobile devices these days!

    Okay.

    First I would higly suggest if possible to you grab a copy of Interspire, you should find some nulled version on this forum easily. Insterpire is quite easy to install and understand. But, if you are in a hurry, go with you software. I can't really say anything about this software since I never used it. Remeber that with Interspire you can split test your campaigns, using differents headers, texts and links.

    Since it's only a few hundred emails, you will rarely send to honeypots or spam traps, so it's your choice to run your emails on a supression list. If you are in a hurry I don't see much problem.
    Said that, you MUST remove all bounced, deactivated emails since this emails WILL affect you deliverability rate. I use Maxprog mail verifier on a VPS for this.

    1 email per minute is very prudent, that's good. In my opinion you shouldn't send more than 2 emails per minute or 120 emails per hour due to the fact that your IP must be probably new in emailing. If not, then it's a completely different scenario.

    I would randomize your website email like (owner, contact, adm, admin). I would also randomize your text (I assume you are using the "text" format and not "html") and your links within the text. (using subdomains and redirecting).

    I could extend this topic much more but that's my answer to your questions.
    Glad to help.
