I’ve read several posts regarding this process, but can’t get a grip on exactly the best way to proceed.
I’m trying to keep things simple. I start every new subscriber in my Welcome list and tag them accordingly. After a 3 email sequence I subscribe them to my newsletter list, tag them, and unsubscribe them from my welcome list, removing previous tags for the Welcome list. What I like about that is when I view my lists I can easily see how many are in the pipeline (Welcome list). What I don’t like is the constant stream of unsubscribes, not knowing how many of those are automated and how many are actual user unsubscribes. The reports show a high unsubscribe rate which freaks me out.
So, what is the AC position on the best way to move a subscriber from my Welcome list to the Newsletter list, and get a good picture of how many are currently in the Welcome list and how many are user unsubscribes?
Thank-you for your help in clearing this up for me.
