Website Link

Subscriber links are a great tool to grow your marketing lists! Turn your digital traffic to validated contact information! Stop accepting bad email addresses and bare minimum contact data for digital registrations.

Subscriber links are connected to a sign up page. Each page is dynamically created and unique for fraud and bot prevention – meaning no fake sign ups.

All subscriber links use 2FA flows to ensure that the correct phone number was used. Once someone clicks through the link and registers on the form, the subscriber is given a unique 6 digit code used to validate their phone number.
