    Love this video, Matt! Great points.

  • Great video. We are constantly scraping our email list. I could brag that we’ve had over 140,000 people sign up for my newsletter – or realistically tell you we’ve pared that down to 78,000 active, responsive people who welcome my information.

    • That’s awesome. We do the same thing.

      I’d rather have you mail to your top 1,000 subscribers (buyers) than most people’s 50,000 person list any day of the week, Dan 🙂

  • I’m so glad to hear that, Matt! It’s hard when we are just starting to grow our email list and see so many unsubscribing during an affiliate campaign. But hey, I had a lot more opting in than unsubscribing! Now we need them to convert. 😉

    • YES! Otherwise you just have a bunch of people on your list that serve no business purpose whatsoever.
