Email Marketing – Ban Activities – Interrelation with ISPs


Certainly, you are not spamming anyone. Regrettably, it is just as definite that you will be accused of doing it nevertheless now and then. Generally, persons who think you’re a bad spammer will not turn to you, but to your Internet service provider. If the ISP does not know what you are doing and that it is legitimate, and if the number of complaints keeps growing with the number of subscribers to your newsletter, the ISP may finally pull the plug.

That is why it is a good idea to update your ISP early regarding your email marketing activities. If they know you and your activities, chances are your ISP will defend you against those wrongly accusing you instead of disconnecting you. If your current ISP does not agree with your email marketing activities, look for another one that does, and don’t stop looking before you have found the perfect match. Your Internet connection and the connection to your service provider both are key to your achievement.
