How to keep a clean email list
Think quality over quantity when it comes to your clean email list. You could have the largest email list in the world, but if there are emails in there that are misspelled, the recipients regularly mark your emails as spam or the recipients don’t actually exist. You risk that your email won’t be delivered to the rest of your list – including the people who actually look forward to hearing from you.
Always make sure that your list only contains proper opted-in contacts. Build good relationships, not large send out lists – this is pretty much list hygiene in a nutshell! Don’t force in new email addresses in the lists through negative opt-in or vague opt-in terms. Be very clear with your subscribers in regard to what they can expect from your communication.
Ensure that the email addresses you have in your lists are confirmed by using confirmed opt-in:
- Double opt-in through the confirmation email
- Dual fields for entering the email address
- Email address validation in forms
Avoiding spam traps
Set up a monthly or weekly task to analyze what’s happening with your list quality. If you notice a decreasing pattern in opening rates or an increase in bounces, check why this is happening before it’s too late.
