Replying to "remove me from your mailing list"

I typically try to "shoot one last shot" when someone tells me that they aren't interested or don't need my product - but what about when people say "please remove me from your email list"? Will replying one last time just piss them off, or have you had success with this?

Personally once it's reached that point of "please remove me from your list" I stop and would not reach out.Β

Always shoot the last shot. I like to write hey I'm happy to take you off my list, but I'd really appreciate knowing why you are not interested?

"I don't keep a list, I reached out to you specifically because.... (insert minimal pitch here.)

That said, I will make a note that you don't wish to be contacted again."

One last email. Make sure it's clear you reached out because of pain/value. There isn't a list.Β

One last email, but say "Hey, no list here, just reaching out because xyz. There's an unsubscribe button you have to hit in my signature, and I'll make note either way! Hope all is well!"

I tell them the unsubscribe button is right at the bottom of the email

I got an email from a clinic that simply said "unsubscribe."

I wrote them back and said "Hey, cool! Thanks for letting me know. I won't email you anymore, but just know that I'm a real human person!

... beep boop."

And left it at that.

I like to response with a 30-60 second vidyard here and tell them that they aren’t on a mailing list. I’m just genuinely interested in their x needs and wanted to see if there was an opportunity to help.Β

How many reach outs (email, call, LinkedIn, etc.) with no response does it take for you to take that prospect off your list?
