How To Ensure CartFlows Email Deliverability With Fluent SMTP

Though a sales funnel depends on many elements, ensuring proper email deliverability should be your first concern to get your desired results. If you can’t send the right email at the right time to potential customers, you can’t expect any conversion, regardless of how optimized your funnel is.

CartFlows is undoubtedly the best sales funnel builder in the market, but you won’t be able to take full advantage of this plugin without integrating it with an SMTP plugin.

An SMTP plugin takes over the default method of sending email by replacing the PHP mailer with routed transactional email services.

Today’s article will show how easily you can ensure better CartFlows email deliverability with Fluent SMTP.

But first, let’s discuss why it’s so important to ensure better email deliverability.

Why Do You Need To Improve Email Deliverability?

If you are a business owner, you’ve probably sent a ton of emails for various purposes.

Needless to say, sometimes the purpose wasn’t served, and sometimes you got more than what you expected. But guess what takes you to a 100% guaranteed chance of failure? — Emails hitting the spam box instead of the inbox!

If that isn’t a good enough reason for you to take improving email deliverability more seriously, let’s look at a few more:

  • Increased visibility: Better deliverability means better visibility. The more your users see your name, what you do, and your offerings in their inboxes, the higher the chance of them being opened.
  • Enhanced trust: Consistent inbox delivery builds trust and credibility with your audience. They recognize you as a true brand, and at some point, they end up clicking on what you want them to.
  • Personalized engagement: How successful you are going to be with email marketing entirely depends on how timely you can reach your audience. Hitting the inbox begins with ensuring proper email deliverability. If your emails don’t reach them in the first place, how can you expect to be on time?
  • Enhanced data analysis: You can’t track email open rates, click rates, click-through rates, and other metrics without reliable email deliverability. Only if all of your emails arrive will you get accurate analytics.

All points become more crucial when it comes to sales funnels. Ensuring email deliverability will help you build trust, engage with customers more timely, and overall drive better conversion rates.

Choosing the Right SMTP Plugin for CartFlows

Now that you know what needs to be done, it’s time to finalize which SMTP plugin you are going to use.

Though there are a number of SMTP plugins available, FluentSMTP takes the crown as the best SMTP plugin.

But if you’re still not sure, take a look at some of the amazing benefits of FluentSMTP:
