Email is just one way that you can share your Vings with your viewers. It is important to understand the basics about email so you know what to expect and how to improve your Ving engagement.
No worries I will keep the jargon to a minimum.
When you invite someone to view a Ving the invitation is actually coming from firstname.lastname@example.org but your viewers will see your name.
So for example it will look like this to your viewers:
From here there are a lot of variables — some are out of our control. And when I say our control I mean Ving and any other provider/service you would use to share video or other media via email.
Every individual viewer has what is called an Email Service Provider (ESP). The provider has its own settings that try to identify spam and filters messages. They use SPF, DMARC, and DKIM to validate that your emails are actually coming from you. So in easier terms, these letters make sure that someone else can not pretend to be you. On top of the ESP, some people have IT departments that also have filters that will direct an email to go to a specific folder.
Here are a few tips to try to get in the right inbox.
- Try telling your viewers that you will be using Ving so they know to keep an eye out for it.
- Ask them to add email@example.com to their email address book and mark us as not spam/junk. This will add us to their whitelist/ safe sender list.
- Try our new whitelabeling beta so your Vings will come from your email domain (this is the end part of the email). Click here to learn more about our whitelabeling beta.
