Email Sender Reputation Monitoring | Sender Reputation Score

One of the most important—but often overlooked—elements of a successful email marketing strategy is your sender reputation.

As you send campaigns to your subscribers, their inbox service providers (ISPs) are constantly assessing numerous factors to calculate a reputation score for your business, with a goal of ensuring that users are only receiving emails they want to receive. If your reputation score drops too low, ISPs may start directing your emails to spam or even blacklisting you as a sender, which means that your emails won’t be delivered at all. With email sender reputation monitoring from Email Engagement Pros, we will keep an eye on your sender reputation across different ISPs and take any actions needed to maintain a high reputation score.

Understanding Your Email Sender Reputation

While each ISP uses its own algorithm to evaluate your sender reputation, the following factors play a significant role in calculating your score:

  • The number and frequency of emails you send
  • The number of recipients who mark your emails as spam
  • Whether your business is included on any blacklists
  • Your email engagement metrics, including the open, click-through, and unsubscribe rates
  • How many hard bounces you have, which refers to the number of emails that were not delivered because the recipient’s address was invalid or there was another permanent problem with the contact
  • Whether your contact list contains any “honeypot emails,” which are inactive email addresses that have been set up with the goal of catching spammers

If these factors and many others lead an ISP to assign your business a poor email sender reputation score, you run the risk of getting blacklisted, which would harm your deliverability rate tremendously and threaten the overall success of your email marketing efforts. Therefore, it’s essential to stay on top of monitoring your sender reputation and promptly resolving any issues that could lower your score.
