Your opt-in email is extremely important. The opt-in email is when an individual is given the option to receive bulk email in the form of a mailing list, newsletter, or advertising.
That’s the permission piece. That’s that option of choice, that’s me as a reader saying, “I want this content, I have opted in, and I’ve given you my permission to send me content information emails.”
