Email Acquisition Best Practices

Email list churn—when recipients on your email list hit the “unsubscribe” button—is a challenge for any email marketer. However, it’s especially difficult to avoid for acquisition marketing campaigns; it’s easy to opt out from communications when you’ve only received one initial, top-of-the-funnel email!

One of the best ways to prevent churn is to start with strong email lists. Here are a few tips and best practices to help your team make the most of your campaign.


Send emails to third-party lists as soon as possible.

Send an initial welcome email with an opt-out link as soon as you receive your email list from your data partner. Purchased lists decay over time, so use them as soon as you can.

Choose the subject line wisely.

Because you only have a few seconds to make a good impression, every part of the email counts. Great emails include impactful subject lines, effective use of emojis, well-thought-out copy, and dynamic visuals.

Make it easy to sign up for your email list.

Don’t bury your email list sign-up in your website’s footer. Consider including an easy-to-find link in the header of your email.

Build your audience using top data sources.

Rather than purchasing generic email lists from low-quality providers, invest in high-quality, privacy-safe, and precisely-targeted audiences.

Send a well-developed series of emails that inspire action.

The best prospect email campaigns include a series of thoughtful messages that are short, sweet, and to the point. One main CTA that is clear and easy to find is also super important.

Re-engage dormant customers.

If a prospect is opening your emails less frequently than before, prevent churn by sending an email that re-engages them.

Respect “unsubscribe” requests.

If a prospect chooses to unsubscribe from your email list, respect that decision and remove them from your email list.
