7 Split testing (also known as A/B testing) How it works? Test different messages, branding, layouts, subject lines Send to a fraction of recipients to test effectiveness Compare results to identify the most effective template to send to the rest of the list One click to generate remaining emails using the most successful template Why use it? Creating more effective messaging Increase open rates by testing different wording and branding of messages Determine what works Optimize email templates for your audience 7

8 Email triggers How it works? Automated emails to specific supporters at specific times, at specific intervals Emails triggered by your supporters’ behavior or based on supporter data Sequence of emails No need to select the recipients list for every email in the sequence Reporting for each triggered email Why use it Tailor communications with an strategic objective Automate the process of reaching out to supporters Save time - you don’t have to manually send emails Increase open rates and action response rates Grow supporters database and increase their activity level Increasing campaigner to donor conversion rates Engaging your supporters on issues that are relevant to them

It’s not known what percentage of email servers check the SPF records for all incoming emails. A relatively small percentage of servers completely reject mail if an SPF check fails. Key take aways Create an SPF record (text file) Add the text file to your DNS record 12
