I want to introduce double opt-in to ensure the quality of my subscriber list but I equally don’t want the double opt-in link to be an additional step the subscriber needs to take - notably I already have recaptcha and a few other pieces of logic/checking on my subscribe form to reduce spam submissions.
What is the best approach for the following:
- visitor enters valid email address
- email is sent to specified address that includes a digital download link
- when the digital download link is clicked, the visitor is taken to the pdf (to view or download)
- by clicking the download link, they trigger the double opt-in and would then get further emails
The tricky bit is (I’d presume) having a double opt-in link that also takes the visitor to an alternate destination (namely the PDF download).
Can someone point me in the redirect direction?
