Having helped numerous customers transition from their old email service provider, one thing's clear: switching to a new email marketing software can be a real hassle. It's time-consuming, stressful, and, quite frankly, it can feel like a mess.
From dealing with CSV file downloads to wondering if you can transfer your engagement history and ensuring that unsubscribes and suppression lists get moved, there's a lot on your plate. Usually, it's a handful of folks on your dedicated email marketing team who bear the brunt of this headache, which only makes things more challenging.
Now, here's the kicker: Amid all this chaos, we've noticed a common oversight among customers, and it's a big one. Many forget a crucial element for email success when switching to a new ESP: the proper warmup of your domain.

What does this sudden onslaught of emails from a new domain to thousands of subscribers look like to ISPs? Yep, you guessed it—spam. And what does that do to your email-sending reputation? It tanks it.
