    Hi there,

    I'm about to start blasting several hundred emails per day to a a list I've compiled. I'm sending the traffic to an opt in with the hopes to gain some legit opt ins. In the original blast though, since the people have not opted into anything, I'd still like to put a "unsubscribe link" which seems to be "real". Does anyone have a script for a fake opt inn link? Something which says, "EMAIL ADDRESS has been removed" or something like that?

    Thanks!

    Just send them to a page that says your email has been removed.

    But this will do nothing :( Your inbox rate will still be low ..

    I don't think is a good idea, but is just my humble opinion. Maybe you need to focus changing some of your marketing strategy.

    Redirect them to a simple php page which has a text field and a button where user is asked to confirm his email (entered in the text field) and after he presses the button, the page says something like: "Thank you, you have been unsubscribed bla bla". The php code also collects the data (the emails) and stores them in your server (text file, sql, whatever) for you to see. It should be a 10 min job even if you don't know any coding at all - check w3schools for data collection/storage via php.

    I like your idea.

    But OP what the point of it, they will know after they received a mail again the unsubscribe link is not working, that will just make thing worse.

    Jut add a unsubscribe link and then send them to a page where they have to fill a long questioner so they can unsubscribe, probably most of them will just give up.

    Thanks for the input everyone.
    I'm not going to send multiple emails to this list. Only 1. I only have 1 shot to make this work and gain as many opt ins as possible.

    This is a highly targeted collection of emails. I'm going to send 50-100 per day using a mail merge. I think the inbox rate should be pretty decent, I'm not going to blast tens of thousands.

    I thought about it a little more last night, I may not even need an unsubscribe button, since the email is coming from my outlook, I'll make the message sound natural as well... because although I obtained the methods through scraping activities (for speed and convenience) I could have naturally collected them and emailed individually.

    Home Page:
    use this script , edit the message as you want .


    Code:
    <?php
    if (!isset($_COOKIE['visits'])) $_COOKIE['visits'] = 0;
    $visits = $_COOKIE['visits'] + 1;
    setcookie('visits',$visits,time()+3600*24*365);
    ?>
    <html>
    <head>
    <title> Title </title>
    </head>
    <body>
    <?php
    if ($visits > 1) {
      echo("link expired");
    } else { 
      echo('your email deleted from our list ');
    }
    ?>
    </body>
    </html>

    Thanks, tried that by copying the above code into a test.htm file. Uploaded it, send the URL to an email. Clicked on the link from my email and get:

    Code:
    [COLOR=#000000][FONT=Times New Roman]1) { echo("link expired"); } else { echo('your email deleted from our list '); } ?>[/FONT][/COLOR]
