E-Mail Validation / Spam Trap Detection

canstockphoto30721029

A multi-pronged approach to email deliverability

Ensuring that your transactional and marketing emails are deliverable is a seemingly never-ending challenge. After all, the causes of invalid or inaccurate e-mail addresses are plentiful, ranging from simple human transcription errors (extremely common in call center environments) to people purposely providing the wrong e-mail address when asked.

Unfortunately, regardless of the reasons e-mail addresses are incorrect, they can become highly problematic. While the most obvious issue is that e-mail marketing efforts clearly cannot work without both a deliverable e-mail address and an address owned by the correct individual, there are additional concerns. Among these are the prevalence of spam traps, and the common practice of old e-mail addresses being converted into spam traps if they’re no longer in use.

It’s important to note in such cases that it’s not always just those individual e-mails to those specific addresses that are not delivered — rather, sending to invalid e-mail addresses can seriously harm sender reputation, resulting in e-mails sent to legitimate addresess being marked as spam. This is one reason why many marketing automation companies that allow e-mails to be sent from within their platform are so insistent on e-mail validity — it’s not just your e-mails to specific addresses that are affected.

Fortunately, a multi-pronged approach such as that offered by JGRobo Marketing, Inc. can help improve the quality of your e-mail data. Typical solutions we offer as part of our JGRobo Lead Guardian product suite include:

Seamless Integration

Lead Guardian’s complete integration into CRMs / marketing automation tools such as Infusionsoft helps bolster confidence for both e-mail marketing campaigns and transactional mailings.

Real-Time Validation


Attempting to ensure e-mail accuracy at the first collection point is often ideal; e.g. in call center environments , we can offer real-time e-mail validity checking, enabling agents to self-correct improperly transcribed addresses.

Spam Trap Detection

We utilize state-of-the-art systems to ensure not just e-mail address validity, but to ensure it is not a known spam trap or otherwise problematic for purposes of sender reputation.

Lead Healing


Our “Lead Healing” system can attempt to obtain a valid e-mail address from customers who have opted in to receive transactional text messages from you.

Other, optional Lead Guardian Features include:

Telephone and Physical address validation

We can also ensure phone number validity (including flagging known fraudulent phone numbers) and physical address validity -- particularly useful in e-commerce and other scenarios where marketing efforts involve telephone follow-up or physical delivery of items.

TCPA (and other) litigant detection


Using a proprietary API integration, we can also detect and act upon inbound leads that are from known TCPA litigants.
