In other words, Google’s Gmail can send your legit email mistakenly to your spam folder.

Receiving An Email

Gmail is a free, advertising-supported email service developed by Google. As of 2018, Gmail has 1.4 billion users subscribed to its service. However, they have employed sophisticated systems to, well let’s say, protect you against spam email.

Use this process to ensure that your trusted list of senders and contacts in your address book stay in touch with you, this is known as Whitelisting.

So how do you “whitelist” an email if you are using Gmail? This process will get your email delivered to your Inbox:

First open your spam folder and if you find the email from your source open it and mark it as “Not spam”gmail spam

Next, Click the drop down arrow next to “Reply” in the upper right side the email from header.

Then, Click the “Add to Contacts List” from the list that appears.

If it does not appear in the dropdown list, then you probably have already added it to your Contacts.

Sending An Email

In your online business, if you use an efficient autoresponder such as AWeber, having your messages reach your subscribers inbox is very important to your marketing campaign.

Each subscriber has the opportunity to whitelist you within their own inbox. This can prevent confusing messages and keep inboxes from filtering you out.

Therefore having your subscribers whitelist you in their own email accounts, you can ensure that your messages will be more likely to reach their inbox. Here are two tips for your online business.

Ask Subscribers to Whitelist You, plus Offer Complete Instructions

  1. Subscribers will appreciate a custom guide for their internet service provider. You can create a blog post, similar to this one, and send it along with your email so that your customers know what to do.
  2. Something to avoid: If you include an email address in your whitelisting request, make sure to disable the link. Otherwise, subscribers may assume that clicking the link will help them whitelist you, and be frustrated when that is not the case.
