ALL MATERIALS AS WELL AS A SUBJECT LINE AND TEST EMAILS MUST BE SENT AT THE SAME TIME TO firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure to add email@example.com to your address book to insure proper delivery.
Please send images and text to the Production Dept. Keep in mind that E-mail is made to be brief, so keep the content minimal, have a call to action and direct readers to your website. In addition to images and text, or a finished html doc (preferred) with absolute URLs, please send 3-5 test names, and a subject line. Remember the Subject line can cause your email to get caught in spam filters, so please avoid words that are spam traps, like "Free", "Special" etc. Once the blast is completed it will be sent for approval. A prompt response will allow GolfStyles to get your blast out on time. If you do not see a test, check with us, but not approving a test in time can result in your eblast getting bumped to the next available date.
Emails that consist solely of images are more likely to get caught in spam filters. Please plan accordingly.
CREATING YOUR OWN EBLAST
