Email Marketing is the most cheapest and efficient way to promote products. However, under tons of junk mail, your marketing mail always be neglected and put into the wastebasket. To stand out from the junk mails, follow the suggestions below to increase the power of your email marketing.

2. No attachment
Similar to the above case, emails with attachment will put extra loading on the email server. Under the threat of virus, some email servers will filter out the email attachment. The customer may not get what you want to provide. Also, nowsaday, most users are very sensitive to those unknown email attachments and they will not take risk to open the attachment.

HTML email can provide a feature rich interface. However, not all email clients support the HTML email well. Even the email clients claim they are support HTML email, different email clients performs differently. If the email clients cannot support well, how can your customer read the message? Moreover, many users set the email client as "Do not load image automatically", your email will have many blank areas in this case.
