This page is a basic example of how you can ensure a new subscriber receives your newsletters.
Once the subscriber has submitted their email address on your website, you can instruct Sendy to take the subscriber to a custom page (such as this) for further instructions.
Those instructions could be something along the lines of:
"Thank you for submitting your email address. You should now receive a confirmation email with an activation link to click. Please check your spam/junk folders! Important! If you do not click the activation link, you will not receive my newsletter :-("
This process relates to Sendy lists that are set to 'double opt-in'.
The advantage of using double opt-in over single opt-in is that fake/spam addresses should not activate their subscriptions through a confirmation email.
As such, your lists should enjoy much higher open rates, be less likely to suffer bounces, and generally keep you away from being labelled a 'spammer'!
Thank you for submitting your email address through one of the example forms on the Colcol website.
You should now receive a Colcol confirmation email with an activation link to click. Please check your spam/junk folders!
