Should You Switch To Single Opt-In For Email Marketing?

single opt-in email

We’re big proponents of double opt-in email marketing, which requires an initial welcome email to validate a user’s email address and allow them a second chance to “opt out.” New subscribers to your email marketing list need to click the link in this welcome email to confirm they would like to join the list. After that, your email marketing efforts continue as usual.

If you’re sending emails to customers or leads, you’ve probably heard of MailChimp. They’re a well-known email service provider that facilitates email campaigns for businesses of all sizes. They offer helpful email marketing tips and a wide array of service levels to fit just about every business owner’s needs. Some might even say they are the “gold standard” of Email Service Providers. Another claim to fame? Double opt-in.

How Double Opt-In Reduces Cost Per Lead

double opt-in

As a consumer interacts with a brand online, they are faced with a number of places and ways to join their email list. Some may overtly opt-in through a subscribe button on site; others complete a transaction and enter a separate database. Still more may take advantage of co-registration, where they join one list and are given the opportunity to quickly sign on with other like-minded companies. But should all these emails be treated the same way? Some imply more permission than others.

Marketers can reduce confusion and weed out any less-than-qualified prospects by using double opt-in. This requires the consumer to confirm they wish to join the email list by clicking an initial opt-in email. Now that they’ve subscribed and confirmed, they are much more likely to continue to open emails and convert. This extra step takes a little more time, but can go along way to reducing cost per lead, and cost to conversion.
