Hope someone knows this

        Yeah, how can they clean it if you don't upload it?

        You upload it to THEIR server.

        You don't send them your FTP details. They send you FTP details to access THEIR server.

        Hope this helps.

    If you are using churn and burn method, you will need to gather more opt in the future. On unrelated advice from your question, I suggest you to not use solo ads because it is such a waste to just burn your subscriber. Why don't you just keep continue with the previous list?

    So what is the cost to use impressionwise? On 10,000, 20,000, 40,0000.... I used a product called email checker. That for $50 you can clean 10,000 subs a day for 3 days. It was pretty good. Was hoping to get a comparison to impressionwise.

    Thanks

    If yo use Aweber, prune users that haven't opened in 6 months. I know, I know, Aweber may not count opens properly. Still, if you want to clean up your list, remember to prune regularly. The name of the game is not 'bigger is better.' Focus instead on overall responsiveness and ROI.

      I use Aweber which has filters. You can filter by different qualifications. So you could use no opens since date added - joined before...type thing.
      And delete anyone who has not clicked thru in a certain period of time. And I delete the unsubscribes.

      Check to see if your email provider offers that feature - it is fast and easy.

    I personally like to segment my list by getting those that click the link in my email on one list. For those that did not click at all, I will keep sending them different email and direct those that clicks to my segmented list. One thing we need to understand that there are times when subscriber might not be free to check email at a specific time but it does not mean that they will not check it at later time.

    Those that did not click after 2 months, I will simply just remove them from the autoresponder. Since they are not clicking on links, there is no point in keeping them as dormant subscriber will cost you money in autoresponder fee.

    Simply delete subscribers who haven't opened e-mails in a long time. I use Aweber but you should be able to do so with GetResponse as well.

    It's no use having subscribers who are not interested in you. Subscribers cost money after all.

      With Aweber, it's easy enough to filter your subs using the three filter fields at the top of the subscriber listings, to select those that haven't opened in your required time frame, and then just delete that segment.

      I'm not the world's most experienced, but I'm not sure why you'd need a paid service to clean your list in this way.

      Am I missing something?

        Yes you are missing something - not everyone uses Aweber (or GetResponse)...

        Second, the filters at AW and GR do not clean out Spam traps, honey holes, etc

        There is more to cleaning a list than just deleting a few unopens. Collect over 100K and you'll know what I mean.
