I want to make sure that new subscribers are providing a valid email address.   What’s the best optin flow for this?

Here’s the 2 processes I see most marketers use.

​1.  Optin page ->   signs up  ->  sent to thanks for requesting info page -> ActiveCampaign sends email to subscribers email address  -> valid email addressee receives email with link to the download page  -> clicks link in email  – > directed to download page for download.

​This way requires that they give a valid email address.  If they don’t,  they never receive the email with the link to the download page.

2.  Optin page ->   signs up  ->  Same page form shows a thanks for subscribing message -> AC sends email to subscribers email address  -> valid email addressee receives email with link to the download page  -> . clicks link in email  – > directed to download page for download

Both work and both have template pages in Thrive.  you can see this in action at https://wpgrow.com/courses/thriveleads-landing-page-basics/
​The reason some people use #1 is that second page​, the “sent to thanks for requesting info page”  doesn’t have to be a thanks/next steps page.  It can be any page you want.   Sometimes you’ll see what’s called an Optin-bump. 

​Eg. include – A one time discount coupon for a product or service, a limited time offer page etc.    

​In both 1 and 2 they still receive the email with the link to the download page.  If you don’t want to include the download page the email that is being sent can have a direct link to the download.  this is preferred to including the download as an attachment.
