    I'm checking my Gmail promotion tab especially when buying new domains from Gdaddy.
    I always find some 30%+ discount coupons there lol :)

    Yeah, Email marketing still working well I think.

    I guess that Google analyze the email content and if it contains too many words related to a product sell / promotion, then it will directly go to that promotion box. So I think you can adapt your email content and make some tests. You could also find some tricks to bypass it (like put text in pictures, but then would require user to click on display pictures, etc...)

    Email List stills works the same for me since Google added the promotion tab. I also made sure to tell my subscribers to move my emails from promotional into their primary tabs. But for me I always check my promotion tab, it kind of grew on me.

    I do not think it really worth it, there are plenty of free tutorials all over the web about email marketing, and I doubt this website bring anything new. But if you have extra $$ to spend, then you are free to try.

    Building mailing lists is good still. It will still be good for a long time I think. They are your prospects. There are platforms you can find with pre-built mailing lists to help you sell your products to the lead. The other positive about a list is that you can over time build a relationship with the prospects by providing quality content and eventually making a sale.

    Good luck & I hope this was useful.

    If it helps your targeted users it will work
    They will go out to search in promotion tab even in spam folder, whatsoever all that matters is quality .. not promoting cheap affiliate stuff
