Chimp Chats – Episode 6
Email Zombies and how to manage them
One of the key factors affecting ‘deliverability’ is the relationship existing subscribers have with your emails. If they’re not opening them regularly, then this is a sign to the inbox providers that your emails aren’t very good – and makes it less likely they’ll hit the inbox. If you have too many “Zombies” (people who are on your list but aren’t opening any emails) this can have a big impact on your deliverability, plus they’re people who you are paying for in Mailchimp, but who aren’t actually reading your emails.
Cleaning your list is one of the best ways of avoiding paying too much and ensures that the emails you send have the best chance of hitting the inbox.
