What do you do with the inactive email subscribers?

by northwish 9 replies
I am wondering which is the best approach in handling inactive email subscribers? Do you simply remove them from the list after a specific time frame of inactivity? Or do you send them some sort of "warning" email before? Do you have any other ideas?

    You need to re-activate them.. I usually do this by sending a 5-day SOAP opera sequence to get them interested in me again..

    I then have them RE-optin to another page for another freebie offer..

    These are the people you want to keep activated.. everyone else is considered too cold and would take a separate campaign to warm up again..

      Nice graphic! I like the 5 day themes of your Soap Opera Sequence.

    Delete them, they're inactive for a reason. They don't care or the email is going into a spam folder.

    Hey northwish, Re-engaging with sleeping subscribers saves your time and effort in acquiring new subscribers...so don't just lose them!
    Rather than dumping automated/text based emails, you can always trigger the subscriber's response by asking them to give away their feedback, offering them an exclusive coupon code & attaching a GIF or a video would definitely end up inducing them hit "Reply" to your emails!

    Hope this helps

    I always remove inactive users on my list within 30-60 days, because if they have not made a move yet, they are likely never going to make a move and just cost me money to keep them there.

    Bigger is not always better, I always working to optimize my lists to have the most active and profitable subscribers on my list.

      Generally, it's best just to delete them. If you haven't connected with them for over 60 days, most likely you never will.

        I think the "Soap Opera Sequence" is worth trying. If it fails - delete'em.
