Let’s talk about your ideal subscriber. We’ll call her Sally. She has all the traits of a real top performer when it comes to your mailing lists. She opens nearly every email, clicks your links regularly, offers feedback when requested, and has even purchased a few of your products. Subscriber Sally is la crème de la crème of your email subscribers.
We know what you’re thinking right about now — “Wouldn’t it be amazing if I had an entire list of Subscriber Sallys?” And without a doubt, that answer is a resounding yes! Sally is your dream subscriber. She’s active, engaged, and she converted. She’s the total package!
So let’s talk about how to find more Sallys to add to your list, or find people like her you can sell to.

The key is figuring out which email addresses to upload.

This is where FeedBlitz’s Engagement Filters come into play. Target your active, engaged subscribers, your Hot List – aka your Subscriber Sallys – so your Facebook ad gets in front people who behave like your top subscribers.
There’s no need to sort through endless spreadsheets finding your top subscribers. Choose how far back you would like to track activity, go through a few clicks, and our Engagement Filters will take…
