Confirmation email is the beginning of your communication with the clients. Confirmation email is sent if you use double opt-in subscription. Sending this email, you can be sure that the email address is valid and that a user is really interested in your work as they need to confirm subscription twice.
In SendPulse, you can create a subscription form alongside with a confirmation email for free. Confirmation email is created automatically in a couple of minutes.
So, how to create a confirmation email?
Step 1. Create a subscription form
Choose “Subscription forms” and click “Create subscription form”. Then, select Form templates to choose a ready-made one, or create your own in Form Builder.
Step 2. Create a notification about subscription
Having created a subscription form, go to “Form options”.
After the users fill a subscription form and click “Subscribe”, they will see a message – notification about subscription. Inform them that they need to confirm subscription otherwise they won’t receive emails. Enter a notification title and text.
Step 3. Create the text of the confirmation email
Fill the “From address” field and make sure it’s a corporate email. Using corporate email, there are more chances to go through spam-filters. If you have a website with a registered domain, for example, mywebsite.com, add your name before it and your corporate email will look like this: email@example.com.
Edit the text of the email with the help of HTML editor or by inserting the code.
Step 4. Choose a confirmation page
Subscribers will be redirected to this page after clicking a confirmation link.
Choose the action after subscription.
If you redirect a user to your own thank you page, enter its URL.
Now you are ready with your confirmation email, click “Apply changes”.
