Bird Watching: Here's some #bad_delivery_advice

If you’re not on Twitter yet, here are the kinds of conversations that you’re missing:

@evan_burke: Who wants to start a #bad_delivery_advice hashtag? Here's one... "Whenever possible, send mail from at least several hundred IPs at once!"

@evan_burke: Make sure your MTAs HELO with 127.0.0.1! #bad_delivery_advice

@ErgoOne: @evan_burke Better yet, make sure your MTAs HELO with the IP that you are sending (trying to send) to. #bad_delivery_advice

@evan_burke: Make sure to tell recipients "This is not spam!" - preferably in the subject line. #bad_delivery_advice

@evan_burke: Affiliate network offers are the best kind of offers. Why even bother marketing your own products? #bad_delivery_advice

@KentMcGovern: @evan_burke Make sure you use a noreply email address, you don't want to hear from your clients anyways #bad_delivery_advice

@KentMcGovern: RT @evan_burke Who wants to start a #bad_delivery_advice hashtag?

@evan_burke: Segmentation isn't worth the effort. Get as many addresses as you can and send more often than recipients like! #bad_delivery_advice

@evan_burke: It's way cheaper to rent a botnet than to use the services of a legitimate ESP. #bad_delivery_advice

@petermblair: Using only bit.ly links in your emails #bad_delivery_advice

@petermblair: using donotreply@ in your email #bad_delivery_advice

@ErgoOne: @evan_burke It probably is cheaper to rent a botnet than pay an ESP. But talk about getting what you pay for! #bad_delivery_advice

@evan_burke: Buy "millions of emails" off the internet for under $100! How could it go wrong? #bad_delivery_advice

@petermblair: use the term "blast" when sending your mail campaign #bad_delivery_advice

@ErgoOne : Been told by delivery experts that "blast" is standard marketingspeak for direct mail/email campaigns. *Bad* idea. #bad_delivery_advice

@evan_burke: .@petermblair better yet, use my new spammer-only link shortener, spam.my #bad_delivery_advice

@ErgoOne : @evan_burke Wanna register spam.my, use it to attract spammers? Bet some BLs would want that data. :) #bad_delivery_advice

@KentMcGovern: If you hide the unsubscribe link, they can't unsubscribe. #bad_delivery_advice

@wise_laura: .@KentMcGovern but if they can't unsubscribe then your list is bigger!! That's better, right? #bad_delivery_advice

@evan_burke: .@KentMcGovern @wise_laura even better, the unsub link should take them to the offer. More eyeballs = better! #bad_delivery_advice

@RetailEmailBlog: Enjoying all the #bad_delivery_advice from @evan_burke @ErgoOne @KentMcGovern @petermblair @wise_laura

@jvanrijn: #bad_delivery_advice Make them unsubscribe from each type of emailing separately! @evan_burke @ErgoOne @KentMcGovern @wise_laura

@petermblair: register your forwarding domains *after* you deliver the mail to bypass URIBL #bad_delivery_advice

@petermblair: WHOIS privacy #bad_delivery_advice

@evan_burke: RT @petermblair: register your forwarding domains *after* you deliver the mail to bypass URIBL #bad_delivery_advice

@evan_burke: Don't bother collecting any data other than the email address. Demographics just needlessly complicate your database. #bad_delivery_advice

@KentMcGovern: Bounce processing? Just keep sending the email till it stops bouncing #bad_delivery_advice

@ErgoOne : @evan_burke Even worse, collect the demographics -- if you have a real name and address, it can't be spam, right? :/ #bad_delivery_advice

@jalogisch: RT @KentMcGovern: Bounce processing? Just keep sending the email till it stops bouncing #bad_delivery_advice

@deecodameeko: RT @petermblair: use the term "blast" when sending your mail campaign #bad_delivery_advice

@philschott: RT @evan_burke: Who wants to start a #bad_delivery_advice hashtag? Here's one... "Whenever possible, send mail from at least several hundred IPs at once!"

@philschott: Hey, if you've got a name and some other demographics you can always do an append to track down an email address. #bad_delivery_advice

@mailq: RT @KentMcGovern: Bounce processing? Just keep sending the email till it stops bouncing #bad_delivery_advice
