I just used GoCentral to build a new (revised) site for our business we've had for a long time in the family. Honestly... I'm shocked how easy it was to use GoCentral Website Builder, our other businesses and stores are all hosted and designed on Wix, so I was not expecting much. Sure you sacrifice some functionality, but in one shift I had a pretty decent site up and ready for traffic (www.birdsnestfurniture.com).
As we test the site, I found that the newsletter signup is working, BUT IT IS SENDING THE CONFIRMATION LINK EMAILS to junk/spam/bulk mail folders -- even on huge providers like Gmail, and is even labeled within Gmail as being "Identified and flagged as potential spam." WHAT!? GoDaddy and Google are 2 of the hugest companies in the world, and Google has flagged secureserver.net as spam?
HOW CAN WE GET THIS FIXED so all of our new customers (we just opened TWO NEW STORE LOCATIONS!) are not missing out?
Hi @Lisi, I contacted live support, they told me we'd have to purchase a paid plan and not the trial, which would fix the spam/junk mail problem...that seemed odd though, because why would a paid plan affect the outgoing server flagged-status identified by Google Inc as spam?
Hi there @FYFBNF,
Can you reach out to us at email@example.com with your customer ID and website details so we can do some testing? Your plan level shouldn't affect this at all, but our delivery experts can take a look.
Thanks for your reply @syyoung
I'm attaching a screen-shot of the way the "share to Facebook" function worked for our Business Facebook page. It rendered really bad, just with some text "GEM" and none of the images we uploaded to include in the newsletter...is this fixable?
*We have the GoDaddy GoCentral Business ($17.99mo) plan that includes email marketing and social media integration. Thanks for your help!
I'll need to dig into this more. When you reach out to us at the email address above, can you also include the name of the campaign you're trying to share to Facebook so we can do some testing with that as well?
Hi there. I see you have an ongoing email thread with the specialists at that email address and there's been some back and forth this morning. If you need troubleshooting again, response at that email address is pretty quick as you've seen and they're well equipped to handled email marketing related questions.
Any insight on our other thread over HERE
Summary: Decided to move from GoCentral trial version of Business Plus plan to permanent version (Business Plus plan, $17.99 a month), and paid upfront of all 3 years last week via live-chat with a sales rep. Will everything just continue forward when the trial period ends in 4 days?
