Well Linda….first of all I’d like to congratulate you on having a professional email system that gives your contacts the opportunity to opt-out of your email, and I totally understand that an unsubscribe from your list can carry the sting of rejection. But I’ve got good news and more news for you…the good news is that you don’t want people on your business contact list who don’t want to receive communications from you. So if they don't appreciate the useful and beneficial information you work so hard to share with them ...it's OKAY to say farewell and it's actually good for you, because it leaves an opening in your database for another contact who's waiting to connect with you and will totally appreciate your gift.
The other good news is that opportunity is knocking ....So, if you are really bothered by the fact that a contact has unsubscribed, or opted-out of your email list …then that’s the perfect opportunity to give them a phone call them and ask why they dropped out. Believe it or not, I have found that someone left my list because they hit the "unsubscribe" button by accident. So go ahead and reach out ....you may rekindle the business flame and start what might become a meaningful and long lasting relationship. I mean just think about it….if you'd had a great relationship with them all along, they probably would not have unsubscribe in the first place!
Of course you’ll do better with a system to attract new contacts, retain existing contacts and keep bridges maintained with previous contacts.
