1) I don't allow anyone to join our mailing list, I use to but the majority of our emails are directed to only customers and then we send an email weekly to our leads. My goal with sugar chimp is for our lead list and our customer list to be automated so I do not have to export from sugar, clean in excel, and upload to mailchimp.
2) I was thinking if any of our leads have been converted to an account it this may be the case. My target list is pulled from a report I created in sugar so that it is only pulling contacts that have the status as "lead". If they are converted, then they should be removed from the list.
3) If I'm pulling the information from a report would this matter? The report is setup perfectly to just pull the information I need...Name & Email Address. When I first did the target list, it pulled the information I needed. I only noticed the additional information this morning when I was setting up another email list.
