It is mandatory to have an unsubscribe link in the email in compliance with anti-spam laws
In compliance with the anti-spam laws, we have made it mandatory for you to insert an unsubscribe link in the email templates. Let your customers decide whether or not to receive emails from you. After all, unsubscribing is the best possible way for your customers to express unwillingness and opt themselves out from the existing emailing list. If not, they may tend to doing something perilous such as reporting spam which is unhealthy for your email campaigning.
Here’s what to do to insert an unsubscribe link in your email template
Unsubscribe Link in Existing Email Template
Inserting an unsubscribe link in an existing email template is so simple. After you provide campaign details, select subscribers, in the third step i.e., Select Template, you’ll need to select desired template and click Next button. If your email template doesn’t have an unsubscribe link, we will insert one in the bottom-left of your email template.
- You’ll see the following screen when you click on Next under Select Template tab
- After clicking on Yes, an unsubscribe link is automatically inserted in the bottom-left of your email template.
- You can proceed to next step but if you’d like to replace the position of the unsubscribe link, you can do that, too. You can copy and paste the unsubscribe link in desired location within your email template.
