No Reply to You Too - Outta Here - Rant
I understand that "noreply" has its place, obviously, but I am referring to those who send me regular emails and don't expect that I wil have a question.
I am sorry but I am tired of "noreply@thisdomain" and "noreply@thatdomain." I understand that you are getting tons of emails and "think" that you don't have the time to respond to everyone, but who cares? Aren't we the same people who have allowed you to have such an admirable email list? We "envy" you but you have become too big for your boots.
On the other hand, I am very impressed when someone takes the time to respond to a query I may have. That alone wins my trust in their products, advice, and in them.
Recently, I unsubscribed from a popular person's list for two reasons.
1. When I tried to contact their company via their official email, they never replied
2. When I tried to reply to them on their "friendly" and "personal" email they sent me, there it was; that dreaded no-relply@IamNeverGoingToRespondToThis.com.
"No-reply" always seems to be saying..." Don't bother sending me any emails, I don't want to hear you. You need to listen to me and only me. Just buy my stuff, OK!! Now get lost!"
What isn't said speaks much louder that what you have said in your email. We must treat our email list with respect and always be willing to engage in conversation. We must not use them like we do an ATM/ABM.
What do you think friends? Are you using noreply as well?:) Please enlighten me if I am wrong. If I am, I promise I will dive into the nearest manhole somewhere, or maybe pay a visit to that executioner.
