The Email Curse Word Database

Snaptactix Staff Author

Today I wanted to put together a list.

This list is what I consider the ULTIMATE “Curse word” database for email marketing.

These are all tested, proven and using these words will dramatically INCREASE your chances of hitting the SPAM or JUNK email box…

Geez! indeed this is a comprehensive list but again it is basically the most English words. Anik was teaching about using the word Free and here you say it’s not a good one to use..

Reply
Jimmy Kim

It’s JUST a suggestion – these are not NO NO words.. but words to be cautious with. Free is a “cautious word” to use 🙂 Just be careful.. I don’t post these for anything else than making you aware.

Jim Young

This is talking about words in emails – Anik is teaching to use the word free in the optin page.

Very interesting list. Will have to go over my emails and tweak them a bit. Thanks

“Unsubscribe?”

Seriously?

Is there a single email out there that DOESN’T have that word in it?

Reply
Dave Lovelace

Yes there is. It’s common for autoresponders to use “Manage Your Subscription” vs. Unsubscribe. SendLane is one that uses MYS.

Betsey

Wow, Jimmy, that is some list. And well timed, too. I finally got the hang of putting together the Opt In and all the links right and am finally creating my first email series that will actually be read by my “list to be”.

Reply
Beth

Wow, it seems like there are very few words available to use without annoying someone. Anybody care to address those?

Willard Brown

I sometimes use the word “money” but separate it like mo ney. Also Income to in come. what about those?

Reply
Jane Hashbarger

Wow! Didn’t know soo many words were on the out list… Thanks for informing us. Time to be creative in writing emails.

A great list, Jimmy – Crazy that Free, Free Access, Instant Access and the like are on here…some (like Weight Loss) are almost impossible to avoid! Tweaking time.

I know a marketer who is extremely spammified who uses a few extra e’S in his free. So instead of free he says freeeee etc.
