Hello, We have an email list that is not currently part of our Constant Contact list. How do we gain consent for this list in order to add it to our Constant Contact list? Choices are website, social media and SMS to send them to Constant Contact, is there a way to send an invitation out via email? Thanks!

Hello @NancyO254 ,

 

How did you obtain the list to begin with, and is there a reason they wouldn't have already consented to your emails beforehand? 

 

The safest email option would be to email them outside of our system, and request that they utilize a sign up form to confirm their permission to email.

 

If you upload them into your account, you can potentially try sending a reconfirm opt-in email, but keep in mind if you have any automations that have a trigger type of any new list addition, it will result in them receiving that automated email.
