Have you, or your clients been importing email addresses into your subscriber lists in Campaign Monitor? You may have noticed that when you import lists larger than your approved list size, a warning appears, noting that you will have to complete our campaign approval process prior to sending your campaign. The benefit is that you and your clients will no longer be caught out by the need to get your campaign approved, just as you’re about to send that time-critical email newsletter.

Our approval process is in place to ensure that everyone enjoys reliable deliverability and service. By having our approval team check that lists abide by our anti-spam policy, we can maintain permission best practice and great deliverability for all campaigns.

You will only have to do this once in order to send to your new subscriber list. Read more about how the approval process works.

Let us know your thoughts on the new campaign approval process – it will certainly mean far less campaign approval surprises for you and your clients.
