Demystifying Email Authentication: A Video Guide to DMARC and DKIM Setup

If you do any email marketing, you need to ‘authenticate’ your email in your autoresponder account. This has always been important, but since 1st February 2024 Google and Yahoo have changed their inboxing rules, so if you are sending emails to anyone with an @gmail or @yahoo email address, if you do not authenticate the email address you are sending from, your mail will NOT get delivered to these people.

Given that gmail alone is said to account for over 1/3 of all emails opened worldwide, this is a big deal, so DO NOT IGNORE THIS – if you haven’t already, make sure you are using a business email address to send your email from (so not a gmail or yahoo email address), and that you authenticate it as required.

Authenticating your email using DMARC and DKIM is a bit technical, but don’t panic – you don’t need to know what any of this means, you just need to do it and it’s really not that difficult. These video tutorials show you exactly what you need to do – you really only need to watch the ones that apply to you, depending on which autoresponder you use.

They were created by Charles Harper (as a PLR product) so I bought it and have added the videos for you below.

Incidentally, if you would like to get the PLR to these to use yourself, either to add to your own blog or to sell you can get it here.

Here’s a full list of video titles.

If you have not got an autoresponder yet but are looking for the best one, personally I would recommend sticking with either GetResponse or Aweber. Both offer a free trial so you can get started without having to pay anything – you only start paying once you go over 500 subscribers, and by then you will be making more than enough to cover the autoresponder fees 🙂

I also have some tutorials  on the blog about how to get the most out of both these autoresponders – for GetResponse Videos go here, for Aweber Videos go here.
