Moving Your Email Marketing Lists
Should I Move My Email List?
Update, May 25, 2018: Due to recent legislative changes (GDPR), we are suspending the transfer of lists from other autoresponder services to TrafficWave.net. We will consider list transfers in an upcoming meeting.
Lately, we have begun receiving a number of requests for from folks asking, “How do I move my email list?”. They want to move their email marketing lists to TrafficWave.net from another service. We recognize that moving your list is a big decision and we are honored that you are considering TrafficWave.net as your new home for your email marketing lists.
Why move your lists to TrafficWave.net from one of the other service providers?
Cost savings is always a big factor and we are very happy to be able to help businesses save a considerable amount of money when they move their email marketing lists over to our system. With our flat rate pricing, it is easy to see how you will save money when you switch to TrafficWave.net.
Deliverability is another big factor and TrafficWave.net enjoys a very high deliverability rate. TrafficWave.net adheres to a very strict policy of what is and is not accepted when it comes to building your email marketing list. Our high standard is a big reason our deliverability rating is so high around the world. No matter where your list is, if your messages can’t get delivered, your email marketing campaign is dead in the water.
If you are wanting to move an established list over from another company, and this list has been built reputably, we do not anticipate any issues with your move. We do need to be clear, however, that purchased or harvested lists are going to be a problem for you no matter which service you use and such lists will not be allowed in the TrafficWave.net system.
So, if you have a list (or lists) that you have been managing with other services and that list is a stable list of valid subscribers you are already regularly interacting with, we welcome your transition and we look forward to helping you transition your list over quickly and easily without the need for your existing subscribers to reconfirm.
Here are the steps to follow:
- Set up your autoresponder campaign and automated follow-up letters.
- Send a support ticket with your list attached as a single .csv file.
- Be sure to let us know which campaign to import your list to.
- Include details on how you have been managing the list, how you built the list, and how often you have been mailing your list.
Upon review, if everything checks out, your list will be imported in to the system and you will receive an email confirmation showing you the totals/results of the move.
Feel free to ask any other questions you have along the way.
