    Single Opt-In Vs Double Opt-In

    Hello members, good day!

    As far as I know most all of the internet marketers are using double opt-in listing building method. I receive the confirmation email each time I opt-in. If I confirm the email subscription, it means now they have permission to send me regular newsletters/offers, etc..

    But single opt-in method is little bit different from double opt-in. Once you opt-in to a website with my name and email they could send me emails without letting us to give permission to send us email offers or newsletters.

    Which method do you think is a good for IM list building campaign?

    I might be wrong in some point I mentioned above since I'm very new in this field. So, I need to know something little more from you guys who has a good experience

    I use double opt-in because i want to make sure that just theses person get my emails who filled out the form. There are very strange people in the internet who fill in wrong emails.

    Depends on what you need and will use that list for,
    but for my personal list I prefer double opt-in.

    With single opt-in you may collect many emails that are nothing but junk. But with double opt-in that possibility is much lesser.

    The reason i dislike double optin is you are losing out on people that forgot to confirm or could not find confirm email

    Most use double optin for one basic reasons:
    spam complaints

    I agree with the other who are saying Double. As everyone else mentioned it cuts SPAM complaints way down. One thing I found is in some markets people will try to get your list in trouble as well by flooding you with a ton of email addresses. This will, of course, subscribe these people to you, against their will and yours. If you have it set up for double it will prevent this. It's probably rare to have happen in most markets but mine was in the coffee niche. So basically, it can happen in any.

    I currently use the double Opt-in. In my opinion the double Opt-in is better than the single Opt-in. Your list will be of much better quality. I would rather have a smaller responsive list then a larger one that isn't responsive.

    I use Aweber and double opt in. Less spam complaints, better deliverability too.
