Moving an Old Contact Database to MailChimp or ConstantContacts?

Uploading your contacts from your computer or company database can be problematic. Depending on how long you have been adding contacts to your database there is a good chance a high percentage of your emails are no long valid. This will cause a high bounce rate and could get your suspended from the bulk email giants.

It’s a good idea to have a 3rd party clean your list before uploading it for use. The company I choose, with great reviews, was Voilanorbert.com Their pricing was very reasonable and found that 35% of my list had invalid email addresses 39% were risky and only 25% were clean, usable email addresses. Mind you, this list went back over 15 years. For checking ~1400 email addresses the cost was $4. Very reasonable. I could have paid an additional $50 and they would have filled in my list with missing names, titles, companies, addresses & phone number.
