  • Frequency of Emails:

  • This is something which may result in spamming and hence annoyance. But on the other hand similarly, right amount of email to relevant receiver is very important at this point and time because it gives a kind of refresher to the recipient (like an update of application) and he/she never forgets you. With this practice, the recipient indirectly creates a brand image in the mind and hence creates need out of the emails being received.

  • Random Errors:

  • Before sending any email to anyone, one must check if backlinks have been properly placed or if the banners format is as per the requirements of the email. If the email is not checked prior to sending it ahead to target audience it will have a very negative impact plus it might result in unsubscription of your emails.
