Do not skim this – I get personal!
I am proud and excited to introduce you to our new partner, AWeber (AWeber Integration)! We are the first scrubbing company to be given an email list hygiene category inside their platform! They are also introducing us to their entire customer base of 100,000. (mind blown)
So what does this mean? It means you can automatically scrub your files inside AWeber without touching it. Here’s how:
Select your list to upload, click on integration tab, select AWeber and then enter your AWeber account details. That’s it!
This is a dream come true for me … Can I get personal with you?
When I started scrubbing files back in 2007, there was only one other person doing it. In 2010, we were the number one email list hygiene company with thousands of clients under our belt. We hired and grew so fast that I couldn’t keep up with the demand.
The image below shows our metamorphose from an online newsletter (The Viral Spiral) to an email list hygiene company overnight:
For 11 years, I have poured my heart and soul into this project. I took on spam fighters whom retaliated with great force, yet I was able to maintain this small company, while many whom did the same, met with complete failure.
Competition came in like a flood! One minute I was on top, the next minute there were 10 other companies to choose from. Competitors signed up with me, took my algorithm and pursued with their idea of hygiene.
Instead of understanding the art of email list hygiene, competitors built automated systems based on theory instead of results. Anybody can remove 30% of a list and get away with finding the trap once in a while.
And unfortunately, many drank the cool aid. But I didn’t give up. I continued to build my suppressions and pursued my private investigative work which improved my infrastructure greatly.
I’ve even made some poor decision in partnerships. Wolves in sheep’s clothing tried to steal it out from under my belt, yet I maintained and pushed on through without any debt nor anyone owning a percentage of it.
So… what’s my point? Even with huge competition and failed partnerships, I still was able to build the email list hygiene company of my dreams and partner with one of the largest ESP’s in the world – AWeber! Verify550 is the blood, sweat and tears of all my failures and successes all rolled up into one.
And today, I am grinning from ear to ear as I write this personal message to you. Thank you! Thank you to the 700 clients that we have accumulated since we launched Verify550 back in November of last year. In 11 months, we achieved great partnerships, booths at trade shows, industry articles and success at every turn.
I am grateful and honored to have you all as my friends and family of Verify550. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions about the above integration. Today is one of the best days of my life!
