Deliverability is the cherished dream of email marketers. You only waste your time and money that you spent for preparing and sending an email campaign if your email doesn't reach your subscriber's Inbox.
GlocApps tracks and reports on deliverability with its Inbox and spam rate metric. Very few email marketers achieved the Inbox Placement rates of at least 90%. The average of Inbox Placement performance for the last 30 days is 76%, calculated based on the email activity of all our customers.
Email marketing is the most convenient means of reaching new and existing customers and subscribers throughout the year. Companies and online marketers can send email marketing campaigns to introduce their products and services, showcase new features, promote their blogs, and give exclusive offers to re-engage customers who haven't been active in a while.

You spend a lot of time designing a beautiful branded email template, polishing up your email copy, and crafting a teasing and enticing subject line that should skyrocket your email open and click-through rate. But before pressing the Send button, did you think that your subscribers might not even get the opportunity to see your email?
Many email marketers are mistakenly assured in their ability to reach their recipients when they observe a high delivery rate. But what the "delivery rate" term actually means is the number of sent emails that did not return as a hard or soft bounce. In reality, a delivered email could end up in the Inbox, or spam box, or could get blocked.
One of the essential metrics to monitor after you send a marketing email campaign is the bounce rate. The bounce rate is the number of bounced emails divided by the total number of sent emails.
The bounce rate is directly related to the quality of your mailing list. A low bounce rate is the sign of a clean, confirmed opt-in list with active and engaged subscribers. A high bounce rate indicates problems with the list management and/or permission-based list acquisition methods.
No one is safe from spam complaints. Complaints can happen even to good marketers who are sending to permission-based email lists.
The complaint rate used to be underestimated, but the recent research shows that 20% of deliverability issues were caused by a lot of spam complaints.
The complaint rate is calculated as the number of "report spam/junk" complaints out of emails sent. For example, the 0.1% complaint rate is considered acceptable and often seen among good senders, but the 0.5% rate is already too high.
While you may not be able to achieve zero complaints, you absolutely can reduce and maintain your complaint rate at the acceptable level to increase your Inbox placements.
When it comes to email marketing, deliverability means getting email marketing messages to the recipients' Inboxes. It is the key to a successful email campaign.
Over the past years, email deliverability has evolved. While the subject lines, spam filter triggering words, special characters, and image-text ratio have been the most important things to pay attention to in the past, these days, email deliverability depends mainly on the sender reputation which includes the sending IP reputation and sending email/domain reputation, recipient’s engagement, list acquisition, and list management practices.
