Engagement Management tool

The Engagement Management tool cleans up your list(s) by removing unengaged contacts. Unengaged contacts are subscribers who have been sent campaigns and/or automation emails but have not engaged (opened, clicked, etc) with them. We recommend using this tool regularly to keep your lists healthy as this will result in improved open rates over time and will reduce spam complaints, bounces, and unsubscribes.

With Engagement Management, you can remove all contacts that have not engaged with your emails ever, or you can remove contacts that have not engaged with your emails within a specific time period. This feature does not look at the date that the contact was created or subscribed--it looks at the most recent date that the contact engaged with a message.

NOTE: This tool will not show you how many contacts will be removed or which contacts will be removed. Before using the Engagement Management tool, we recommend exporting all of your contacts as a backup. Once you choose to remove unengaged contacts, they will be permanently deleted from your account with no option to recover them. The Engagement Management feature will only remove unengaged contacts from the list you choose.
