Wondering if anyone has a similar experience and could suggest a possible work around or better way to set this up in the scenario below…
I have a landing page that pushes subscribers to a Mailchimp list group. That sign up triggers an automated promotional email to be sent (containing a % off deal) once Unbounce pushes the user info in.
However, if a user clicks unsubscribe in that email and then later decides to revisit the landing page and sign up again using the same email nothing happens. By nothing I mean:
1 - the contact status remains as “unsubscribed”
2 - the user is not resent the deal email
I know, I know - silly people unsubscribing, but these offers are cheap/simple and also seasonal, so people unsubscribing and then wanting get the deal at a later date by the same means/email is actually kinda possible/likely.
I also know unsubscribes/resubscribes are tricky and mailchimp are a sticklers for consent but I would have at least thought part 1 would occur.
I understand for 2, that the idea of automation sequences is even if they get back to “subscribed” status (changing from being "unsubscribed) it’s unlikely Mailchimp can resend email 1 in the automated email sequence - I only have one email containing the offer so it’s kinda important and the only way to get them the deal.
Anyone understand the scenario I’m in and know if it’s possible to change the contacts status back from unsubscribed and also force the first/one automated email to be resent?
I hope I made sense - thanks in advance,
