It is heart-breaking to say that every year, email marketers lose 25% of their email list. The reasons can be many, but the result is the same. A consumer, who is subscribed to your services, but isn’t engaging to them may increase your chances of being flagged as spam. According to one of the recently held surveys, 75% of email subscribers are inactive.
As mentioned above, reasons for un-engagement can be many and some of them are;
- Frequent emails
- Disinterested subscribers
- Decreased open rates and clicks
How unengaged subscribers can hurt you?
