2018 brought GDPR, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation. 2019 heralded CCPA, the United States’ own California Consumer Privacy Act. 2020 brings enforcement of CCPA, and the promise of more data privacy rules and regulations. While the specifics of each may vary, the general principle of giving consumers control over their data remains. And it necessitates maintaining tracked consent and diligent data practices. Double opt-in can help you ensure your have verifiable proof of consent for your email list, and is a great first step towards developing your own data privacy guidelines.
Retargeting ads can be highly successful, and it’s been shown that resubscribed email users have higher conversions rates at a faster pace than new subscribers. So what if you could retarget unsubscribed email addresses? This year, resolve to retarget the right way with a winback campaign that matches unsubscribed email addresses and displays opt-in ads to make it quick and easy to resubscribe, no inbox required.

Opt-in advertising allows you to target users on the websites they already frequent, and co-registration means they can join your list in just a few clicks. There is no landing page, and no wasted clicks. Just new leads ready to turn into customers.

The old adage “it costs less to keep a customer than convert a new one” is still true today. But what about a former customer who has unsubscribed from your list? You might think it would take more time and money to resubscribe and resell to them than to an unknown user. After all, they actively opted out of your list at some point! Perhaps they have a reason to dislike you or no longer need your product? On the other hand, an unknown user has no history with you, and no pre-conceived ideas to block their path to purchase. It sounds reasonable, but we’ve actually seen that previously unsubscribed users are easier to resubscribe and often more likely to convert than a new lead. They’re easier to target, too. You just need a strategic win back campaign.
