How To Fix Overlapping Subscribers Mailerlite

MailerLite is a popular email marketing platform that allows businesses to create and send newsletters, campaigns, and other types of emails to their subscribers. However, sometimes it can be difficult to manage your subscriber list and prevent overlapping subscribers from receiving the same email multiple times.

What are Overlapping Subscribers?

Overlapping subscribers occur when a single email address is added to multiple lists within MailerLite. This can happen accidentally or intentionally, but either way it can lead to confusion and frustration for both the sender and the recipient.

How to Prevent Overlapping Subscribers

  • Create separate lists for different types of subscribers. For example, you could have a list for newsletter subscribers, another for blog updates, and another for product announcements.
  • Use double opt-in to confirm that the email address is correct and that the user wants to receive emails from your business.
  • Regularly review your subscriber list to identify any overlapping addresses and remove them as needed.

How to Remove Overlapping Subscribers

  1. Log in to your MailerLite account and go to the “Subscribers” tab.
