I want to keep people reading my emails, and I was thinking if I could get people to click on a link to go into a draw, they would keep reading rather than the dreaded unsubscribe button .
Is there a way to do that out of the box with CM?
Hey there Marty,
Remember the golden rule: "The user holds the mouse, and there is nothing you can do about it."
I prefer to let my newsletter content do the talking. If my content is worthwhile, I expect to get fewer unsubscribes. I also make my unsubscribe link prominent. Crazy? Not really, I believe that this shows newsletter recipients that I respect their choice to do whatever they like.
Just my 2c worth.
Not currently possible with CM
It would need a survey feature.
A workaround could be to use the campaign reports, and create a segment from all users that clicked-through to a certain page.
You could do it if your web server has PHP/ASP etc...
append [email]to the querystring of your link i.e. www.enterdraw.com/enter.php?e=[email]Then pick up the "e" parameter and whack it in a database. Then you've got a local copy of everyone who's clicked the link...
