The following will illustrate the 2 methods on how you may remove the invalid emails from your Mailchimp lists.
Note to first time users: In order to utilize any of the methods outlined, MailChimp requires that the BriteVerify app is authenticated. BriteVerify will prompt you with the following dialog when it needs access. Enter your login info and the verification will proceed. You only need to do this once.
VERIFYING AN EXISTING MAILCHIMP LIST
Once you're logged into BriteVerify, click the blue Verify List button at the top right. A dropdown menu will offer a list of services you can import from.
Next, you have the option of removing Risky emails, along with the invalids at this stage. Risky emails include Unknown and Accept_all category emails and are preferred to be removed as they can dilute a marketing campaign’s overall performance. Simply enable the radio button to remove the risky emails from your list.
You also have the option to remove inactive emails.
Leave the Export Destination set to File
Simply click the Verify List button to begin the verification process. The list will be automatically updated in Mailchimp once it has been verified.
Once the list has been verified, you’ll be able to view a detailed report of how many emails were removed from the original list. This information has automatically been updated in your Mailchimp account directly.
ONBOARDING NEW DATA TO MAILCHIMP
Prior to importing your data into Mailchimp, simply verify it by following these steps:
Save the new list as a .CSV or .TXT formatted file.
Upload the list to BriteVerify by clicking the blue Verify List button at the top right. A menu will offer a list locations you can import from.
Choose Computer and locate your list.
Once the list is uploaded and prepped, a price estimate is displayed based on the number of emails found in the list.
Leave File as the Export Destination and simply click the Verify List button to begin the verification process.
Once the list has been verified click View Details. You'll get a detailed view of the results and various download options will be available.
