As you already probably know GDPR placed new rules in email marketing.
I've noticed years ago that most of you are 'cold marketers' using scraped email lists or paid ones.
If our servers were graylisted and blocked for someone doing this at x1 rate now this is done probably x4 rate.
It is interesting that every marketer said that they were sending to real subscribers which is fat lie to just be able to find way for their emails. Well actually if you were honest of how you collected them were there any consent etc etc maybe there would be a way to do it.
I remember some success with few buddies from here that were sending the emails really slow which was the real deal before new GDPR rules came.
GDPR has positive sight. People now will have empty mailboxes,which in turn will make them subscribe to YOUR newsletter much easier! Don't waste time and place catchy newsletter subscription box mentioning the rate you're going to send newsletters.. Example would be "Get our weekly special offers to your email." Once a week is not that bad.If you have over 40% open rates that means they starve for more. Then you have to find a way to increase the offers specially to the openers!
Good luck everybody! This post is intended to open discussion of new email strategies and sharing experience + feedbacks.
