First time poster, long time lurker.
Yesterday I release my very first info product (go me!) on a hobby site that I run. I'm using e-junkie shopping cart and paypal as payment processor.
I'm using Aweber for my email lists and using e-junkie as the parser, but I encountered a problem last night.
I had my first buyer a few hours after release, and the automatic rule in aweber unsubscribed them from my original list, but what I didn't realize is that it unsubscribes people regardless of whether or not they confirm the new subscription. That means I have now lost someone from my list
I've searched for info around these parts, and everyone raves about how easy the parser and automatic aweber rules make life, but no one really talks about getting existing subscribers to click your confirmation email.
What techniques do you guys use to make sure existing subscribers move over to the new list to minimize loss, that also doesn't violate the rights of buyers who are not currently on a list?
Or am I missing something extremely obvious?
Thanks a lot
