7 Reasons to Cleanse Your Email List and How to Purge Subscribers

Email List Cleansing

We’re focusing a lot on email marketing recently because we’re really seeing a lot of problems in this industry. If an executive continues to pester you on your email list growth, you really need to point them to this article. The fact is, the larger and older your email list, the more damage it may be having to your email marketing effectiveness. You should, instead, be focused on how many active subscribers you have on your list – those clicking or converting.

Reasons to Clean Your Email List

  • Reputation – ISPs block or place your email in the junk folder based on poor IP sending reputation. If you’re always sending to bad email addresses, it’s going to impact your reputation.
  • Blacklisting – If your reputation is poor enough, all of your email could be blocked.
  • Revenue – If more of your emails are making it to the inbox with active subscribers, that will generate more revenue.
  • Cost – If half of all of your email is going to dead email addresses, you’re paying twice what you should be with your email vendor. Cleansing your lists will reduce your ESP cost.
  • Targeting – By identifying your inactive subscribers, you can send re-engagement offers directly to them, target them on social media, and see if you can get them re-engaged.
  • Relationships – By having a clean list, you know that you’re engaged with subscribers that care so you can better focus your messaging.
  • Reporting – By not worrying about the list size and focusing on engagement, you can get far more accurate data on how well your nurturing and email programs are operating.

Sometimes I groan when I hear the term millennial in a marketing conversations. At our office, I’m surrounded by millennials so the stereotypes of work ethic and entitlement make me cringe. Everyone I know that age is busting their butt and optimistic at their future. I love millennials – but I don’t think they’re sprayed with magic dust that makes them too different from anyone else. The millennials I work with are fearless… much like I was at that age.
