Making your Emails CAN-SPAM compliant
No, this has nothing to do with that processed meat product your grandmother used to use in her fried rice. CAN-SPAM is the most important law to understand as an email marketer. If you violate the law, you'll be subject to fines and penalties from the US Government. Most countries have their own versions of the CAN-SPAM rules. We'll link to them below.
We'll be focusing on the US version of this law. The most recent version can be downloaded via this link
. Here's an overview of the main CAN-SPAM requirements:
- Use accurate header information. Your "From," "To," "Reply-To," and routing information - including originating domain name and email address - must accurately identify who initiated the message.
- Don't use tricky subject lines. The subject line must reflect the actual content of the message
- Identify the message as an ad. The law gives you a lot of leeway on how to do this, but you must clearly disclose somewhere that your message is an advertisement.
- Tell recipients where you’re located. Your message must include your valid physical postal address where you receive mail.
- Tell recipients how to opt out of receiving future email from you. Your message must include clear instructions on how the recipient can opt-out of future emails. This can be by email, or some other easy internet-based way to unsubscribe. Make sure your spam filter doesn’t block these opt-out requests.
- Honor opt-out requests asap. You must be able to process requests within 10 business days. You can't charge a fee, ask for more info, or make them take any other steps. You also cannot sell or transfer their email address. If you hire a company to help with your CAN-SPAM compliance, you can provide the email address to them.
- Watch what others are doing on your behalf. The law makes clear that even if you hire another company to handle your email marketing, you are still responsible with compliance with the law. So if that company violates the CAN-SPAM law, the FTC will fine both the company and you.
