How to Avoid Being Marked as Spam

Posted by Vasim Tamboli
Mail
If you’re marketing via email, you do run a significant risk of being marked as spam by your readers. There are people out there who will mark you as spam, even if you have an unsubscribe link and even if they voluntarily signed up for an email list so they could receive your promotions. For such users, there’s really nothing you can do. They are the equivalence of the people who will call customer service to complain about something no matter how good of a product they purchased. Some people are genuinely unhappy all the time and are just looking for a reason to take it out on someone, and a spam button is an easy way to do it.

There are things that you can do, however, that can reduce the chances that you will end up being marked as spam. Some of them may not seem like good ideas from a marketing perspective, but you’ll soon find that they actually are if you do them right.

That Button

Entrepreneur.com advises that you not only make it easy for people to unsubscribe from your email newsletters, but that you make the button very visible. This can diffuse bad situations. Here’s why.
If you look at a lot of marketing emails, you notice that you have to scroll all the way to the bottom to find the unsubscribe link. Quite frequently, the unsubscribe link is made as inconvenient as possible to find and use. If you do click on the ultra-tiny type and go to the unsubscribe page, some marketers will want you to fill out 10 or 15 questions as to why you are unsubscribing from their list and, to make it worse, the unsubscribe link may only unsubscribe you from a specific type of marketing email rather than all of their marketing emails. There is one thing that this is guaranteed to do: make people really mad. If anything is going to get you labeled as a spammer, it is engaging in shady techniques like these and pretending that they’re not shady.

Make it easy for people to unsubscribe from your marketing emails. If they want to unsubscribe, there probably never going to click on a link in them anyway, so you’re not losing anything. Think of it like web traffic. The traffic you want going to your website is from people who are actually interested. If you get 10,000 or 15,000 people every month and 9999 of them have no interest in your product, they’re just sucking up bandwidth anyway.

The Message

You might have to push yourself a little bit harder these days to engage with customers. Remember that putting out an email newsletter is not a new or original idea. Pretty much everybody who’s involved in any kind of online marketing is doing these days. Your headlines have to be engaging. Your subject lines have to be engaging. You have to give people some reason to read it because, let’s be honest, they have a lot of email to read and reading an advertisement really might not be what they feel like doing, and lesser given a good reason.

If you are trying to develop better content, make certain that the effort is mirrored on your website. You can utilize tools such as Premium WordPress themes to give your site a look that’s consistent with your newsletter, as well, which may make people more likely to make an association between the email they got from you and your site, making it less likely that they’re going to label it as spam. Email marketing is always been challenging, and you have to put some time into it to make certain that your standards are high enough that you don’t end up in the spam box.

Posted by Vasim Tamboli
As technology develops, more and more android games and applications are trying to make its way to the top. This year, a lot of free games got popular.  So here’s our pick for the top 5 android apps for 2014

1. Flappy Bird


This game has massively gained users for its simplicity. It was created by .Gears Studios from Vietnam. The main objective of the game is to get pass through the pipes. All you have to do is to tap the screen to fly and to control the bird as good as you can to not hit any of the pipes. The game play may look simple yet once you try it, it will make you stay in your seat for hours.  And the best part is you can download Flappy Bird for free.  Others find this game annoying, but we find it simply amazing.

2. Marvel Run Jump Smash

If you like hero games, then Marvel Run Jump Smash is the game for you. From the name itself, this game’s goal is to run, jump and smash your way until the end of the mission. With its simple controls, one can easily get hooked with this game. You also get to unlock some Marvel heroes as you go along the game. The main objective of this game is to collect coins, and defeat the enemies blocking your way. 

As you reach higher levels, you will find it difficult to collect coins due to the arrangement of the coins and the enemies. You also need to have an active internet connection to play this so you can connect with your friends and gain your rank in the leader board. Though you may have to pay a little to play it, the game is worth-playing.

3. Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour

Modern Combat has just released another chapter in the market. Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour is another first-person shooting game you should not miss. With its high-quality graphics, not to mention the cool cinematic cutscenes being shown between levels and checkpoints, you get to feel the realistic effects of the game. The storyline is also good because you get to know the story and play the same event in the perspectives of different teams. The only thing you need to take note is that your companions easily die if you don’t know where the enemies will come from. But aside from that, this is a must-play game for every first-person shooting fanatic.

4. Farm Heroes Saga

King, the creator of the famous Candy Crush Saga, also made its way to our top 5 android apps. Aside from the cute graphics, as usual, Farm Heroes Saga has the same concepts with the first games released by King. The only difference is that its setting is now different which is now in the farm. Like Candy Crush Saga, you also have to match 3 or more of the same type in horizontal and vertical combinations. Reaching the quota per level lets you go along the game and as you progress, new kind of obstacles and pieces will come into the game. New thing about this is game is that you’ll have to fight an evil raccoon in the boss stage. This is a new idea compared to the past games made by King.

5. Squishy Birds

If you are having a hard time playing Flappy Birds, then this game is good for you. Squishy Birds requires you to squish all the birds for as long as you can. As time passes, more and more birds come into picture and bigger birds are harder to kill. Even if you can’t reach a score of 20 in Flappy Birds, you can gain hundreds of points without a sweat in Squishy Birds.

People like to read post that teaches them something so, post content on your blog with the title “How to”, “Top list” and other types of interesting posts.
Your content must contain information that your reader cannot get that information anywhere else. Your content post must be well structured, spelling and grammar mistakes free and for the better results the content must be very interesting from the starting to the end.

Most of the guest blogger provide author bio section at the end of the post where you can get link on your blog or on your social profile.

3. Social Media

Social media have variety of users and it is the best place to get maximum exposure to your blog. After you finished with your killer post just share it on your social profile including main Facebook fanpage, Google plus community, tweet about it and Pin it on your board.

If you have not build strong community on your social media profiles, then your post will fall flat.

Without SEO a website or blog is nothing instead it is just a blank paper nothing written on it. SEO is one of the most important parts of blog promotion that ranges from the on-page SEO of keyword research to the off-page SEO of Blog submission to different website.

On-page SEO is the initial step you need to follow before writing any post. Choose the right keywords add attractive description and take care about the other things like keyword density, heading tags distribution, etc.

Off-page SEO includes submission of your post to high quality websites to get quality back links for your blog. There are several off-page SEO techniques such as Social bookmarking, Forum posting, Article submission, etc. Always watch out for the quality not on the quantity.
