|1. Sea Salt
Sea salt, harvested from the ocean, has been used for several thousand years. It is ideal for bringing out the freshness in salads and greens; it tends to make lettuce and other vegetables crisper. When cooking, grilling, baking or broiling beef, pork, poultry and seafood, sea salt brings out the natural flavors of the meat.
Sea salt is also perfect for long, steamy baths at the end of the day. Add a cup of sea salt to a warm bath and soak for at least ten minutes. Sea salt has a healing effect – it pulls toxins from the body and soothes and heals the skin. Scented oils can be added to the bath for both fragrance and to soften skin.
Here are some additional ideas from Cargill Salt and the Salt Institute for using common table salt around the house:
* Soak a new straw broom in a bucket of hot, salted water to increase its lifespan.
|2. Email Deliverability
Your reputation determines your email deliverability more so than your content… at least that’s the finding of a recent Lyris ISP Deliverability Report card for 1st quarter 2007.
Your online reputation, in terms of email deliverability is determined from a holistic viewpoint of everything you do right and wrong, but more specifically it’s based on subscriber feedback (ie: Do your own subscribers report your emails as SPAM or not?).
Net results from the report indicate that there are two things you should consider to improve your deliverability:
You may want to consider reducing the quantity of images used in your email newsletters and marketing campaigns.
Keep in mind that many Outlook and other users block images all together, so if your HTML email is very image heavy, you may be reported as spam because that’s what it may look like to your members who block images.
Make sure your "From Name" does not include numbers or symbols rather than your actual name.
In addition, I’d add that you should make your email address something related to your brand instead of "no-reply@your domain". In the old days, the "From Name" was not displayed by every ISP or email client and all the member saw as your actual from email address.
