The exact reason why will be mentioned in the report you get from the blacklist provider.
Step 3: Fix the issue
Depending on why you were listed, ensure you’ve taken steps to fix the issue.
For example, if you got too many spam complaints, here’s what you can do:
→ add a clear unsubscribe button to ensure that only people who want to receive your emails stay on your list.
→ take feedback from your audience to understand what you could do better. Spam complaints could mean you aren't reaching the right target audience.
→ clean your email list and update it as your offer evolves to ensure you’re reaching out to the right audience who will find it valuable.
Step 4: Request for removal
Every blacklist has a process to get removed. Sometimes, just following deliverability best practices for a few weeks automatically removes you. Other times, you need to follow specific steps.
Either way, you can only request an email blacklist removal when you’ve fixed the issue that got you listed. Once you have, contact the blacklist and ask for the required steps to get removed.
Usually, this includes filling out a form, sending out an email, or paying a fee.
For example, invaluement has a dedicated process for delisting requests 👇
Once you’re removed from the blacklist, monitor your deliverability before, during, and after sending email campaigns. This will help you take other steps to boost your deliverability and avoid the spam folder.
