Best Way to CLEAN a Mailing List?

5 replies
I recently tried importing a list to Get Response but they said there were too many non-existent addresses on it (which makes sense since the list is a bit old, but not THAT old) - is there anyway to "clean" up a list by removing dead emails/nonexistent emails/etc.?

    You can use this Advanced Email Verifier to check email validity. It will check every email address from a database or a mailing list and determine if the emails are still valid. Very easy to use, powerful, and reliable utility to verify and clean up your mailing list.

    Why don't you just send a message to your list with the subject line... "please open (very important)
    Delete the subscribers who don't open the message. It may seem a bit extreme, but hey, if they don't open that email they're not really worth having on your list anyway.

    Or...

    For the ones that do open the email. Ask them to click on a link inside if they want to continue getting your emails. You can have the link pointing to a free report or something. If they don't click the link, delete them.

    I do this sort of thing all the time. The last time I did this I ended up deleting 1038 subscribers. You know what, it completely changed how I looked at building lists.

    The problem of moving from aweber to getresponse and vice versa is that you end up losing too many leads. The question ..."Is it Really Worth It " ?

    Well, yes, because aWeber charge more as your list grows, even if those leads are dead.

    Cheers,
