So I HAD an email newsletter. The service I used was MailChimp.
I logged in this morning, thinking, “Hey, I should delete the unsubscribers from my contacts. That should improve the open rate on my emails.” So I go to the menu showing all of my subscribers, including unsubscribes and bounces. I go to check the box to select the unsubscribes on the page shown to me.
Little did I know: clicking the “select all” button selected ALL of my contacts, not just the unsubscribes shown on screen.
And, well, all of my contacts got deleted.
Active, inactive, and unsubscribed people – all gone.
THREE YEARS OF WORK. GONE.
Due to a clunky mechanic through my email newsletter service, I have permanently deleted all of my subscribers.
I can’t contact support to fix this because I was on the free member plan. Tech support is only available for people who pay for a monthly plan.
There is no way to get them back on again. So I have to start over. From scratch.
And I’m going to start over with a different email client.
Please bear with me as I get this fixed.
Words cannot describe how disappointed and angry I am at this.
