Nonprofit Email Deliverability—A Resource Rundown & A Sweet Webinar Coming Up!

No matter how long you’ve been running your email campaigns, the last few years have brought about a whirlwind of change that require even the most seasoned emailers to take notice and take deliberate steps to ensure your messages get through. Blackbaud has spent the past year educating and enabling our nonprofit clients about how to navigate this new world of email deliverability, where just because you send to an email address that’s been in your house file for 10 years doesn’t mean that your email will be delivered.  Whether that email address has become a recycled spam trap or so many people marked your emails as spam that Gmail has just stopped sending your emails altogether, managing email campaigns is both art and science.

For nonprofits who need to reach a wide audience in order to fund their missions and make the world a better place, getting that email into inboxes is critically important. To help you tweak your email campaigns for success, check out the following great posts and attend our joint webinar with Return Path this Thursday.
