What Are Email Whitelists, & How Do You Get On Them

I booked my flights, and the day before I was supposed to leave, I tried to find my confirmation email. Here, we'll explain what email whitelists are, and how you can ensure your company is on the whitelists of your email recipients. What is an email whitelist? How To Get On Your Email Subscribers' Whitelists To get on your email subscribers' whitelists, you can ask your subscribers to whitelist your email address. First, you might simply send the following message: "To be sure our emails always make it to your inbox, please add us to your email whitelist." To add someone to a whitelist, your subscriber simply needs to add you as a contact. To make the process simple, you can include instructions in your email, like this: "To be sure our emails always make it to your inbox, please add us as a contact. An alternative to the above message might simply be asking recipients to add you as a contact. Ideally, you'd include this message in the first email you send new subscribers, since it might be frustrating for recipients who have already successfully received your emails in the past to randomly receive an email instructing them to add you to their contact list.

I couldn’t find it anywhere. Panicking, I called the airline. “Ma’am, your payment was denied. We emailed you about this.”

Very quickly, I learned the importance of email whitelists.

Fortunately, I was able to book another flight. However, this didn’t save me from the stress or frustration I felt at the airline for being unable to contact me any other way.

At the end of the day, you don’t want a similar experience to happen to your customers. And, as a marketer, nothing is more frustrating than realizing your email marketing tactics, meant to engage and delight new prospects, aren’t working simply because they aren’t being delivered to your prospects’ inboxes.

Here, we’ll explain what email whitelists are, and how you can ensure your company is on the whitelists of your email recipients.

What is an email whitelist?
