- Advantages for List Owners & Marketers by having Double Opt-In
Since only people who have the intention to remain on a list end up on it, and messages are more targeted. This will definitely increase the conversation rates with lower un-subscription rates.Double opt-in also guards against accusations of spamming, say by forgetful users or by malicious competitors.
