GDPR has come into effect, and with it, far-reaching implications for email marketers around the world. While the General Data Protection Regulation may technically only apply to European Union citizens, most have adopted its principles on a global level to ensure full compliance. When it comes to email marketing, this means a sender must have proof of consent for every address they include in their distribution. Didn’t keep your original opt-in records, or maybe used some not-so-white-hat tactics a long time ago? Your email list could have just gotten a lot smaller. Here’s how to rebuild your email list with opt-in advertising.
Review Your Current Email List For GDPR Compliance
Send An Opt-In Email For Explicit Consent
Yes, they’re a bit annoying. Everyone’s Inbox is flooded with them lately, and some consumers are using them as a quick reminder to opt-out and clean house. But as you work to validate or rebuild your email list, remember there’s a reason so many have joined this trend: it gives you an opportunity to demonstrate explicit consent and keep a record of it. Yes, you may get some unsubscribes, but the vast majority will be people who had forgotten they were on your list and had either been segmented out or rarely opened your emails only. Your list size may shrink, but the quality should improve. And a small list of loyal subscribers is a better starting point than zero as you rebuild your email list.
