  • Typography, color and readability

    Good usage of fonts in designs can give great first impressions. Especially when email clients block images by default, it is very important for your subscribers to quickly read and clearly get the core text messages across to them in emails.

    To make sure all your subscribers can get the same message quickly through different platforms, HTML emails only display the below web safe fonts:

    Sans Serif fonts

    • Arial
    • Arial Black
    • Tahoma
    • Trebuchet MS
    • Verdana

    Serif fonts

    • Courier
    • Courier New
    • Georgia
    • Times
    • Times New Roman

  • Images size, format and more

    • The smaller the image size, the faster the image loads. It is ideal to keep each image you upload under 150kb.
    • Preferred format: JPG, PNG and GIF
    • Images path in HTML email: if you are coding your own email, please use absolute source links.
    • Most of email clients block all images in your email by default unless you click to allow the display of the images. Please try to keep your core message in text of your email, so you can avoid the below situation:

  • Call-to-Action

    Do you know that a retail commercial without a call-to-action is normally considered incomplete and ineffective? Call to action can urge the reader of a core message to take an immediate response.

    You can use a button or a text link to display your Call-to-Action message. E.g.

    • Read More about the deal
    • Download free report
    • Buy Now
    • Order Online
    • Compare Interest Rate

  • My bounce report data is showing 0

    If your bounce report shows 0, and you have received a high number of emails that have bounced back into your own inbox, this is due to changing the from email address when creating your email.

    1. Go to emails on the top menu
    2. Click the edit icon next to the email in question
    3. See if the email address showing in ‘From email’ is your own email address or an emailezy address.

  • File import did not work

    If you have tried to import a file using the example CSV file provided, and have a result such as:

    1 imported
    1,999 failed

    This is usually due to the heading being removed from the csv file. The headings are very important and must stay within the file before importing.

    Other things you can look for if a high number have not imported are when data is in the wrong columns, or the format of some of that data is not correct. E.g. name@ email.com (where there is a space between the @ symbol and the domain name)

    Ask a Question
  • Reasons for High Bounce Rates

    There can be multiple reasons why an email bounces. Below describes the most common:

    Bad Data

    Data integrity can be a common issue with data being collected along the way. If your list is new or old, it can be a good to go back to the source and look at the accuracy of the source, and how it was compiled.

    Age of the list

    If the list is old, it is very likely that there will be emails no longer used. These can be due to the email addresses being a company address and the subscriber no longer works there, that someone has shut their email down, someone no longer uses that email address and their mailbox is full,

    Under any of these circumstances, it can be good to regularly clean up your email list.

    Please note if you are using the bounce feature correctly in emailezy, after 5 bounces the subscriber will automatically change to a status of ‘unsubscribe’.

    CSV Import Issues

    It could be when your CSV or database import occurred that data was not in the correct columns, or there were problems with the format of the data. This can be checked by looking through some of the bounced emails or your subscriber list to see if the email addressed showing do not look like they are correctly formatted.
