I've been on a mission to unsubscribe my main email account from any email list that doesn't leave me eager to open it bringing be instant joy... That means a lot of unsubscribing - email come thick and fast with the business of online marketing. On occasion I also fill in the feedback form if the auto-responder asks for it too... I filled in a feedback form from aweber this morning as I unsubscribed from an email list that wasn't rocking my boat... A few minutes later the owner of the list emails me back and we enter into a rather positive and relationship building email exchange. She pulled me back - she's a very new marketer that does have some rough edges "like she emails too many offers" BUT I'll be staying on her list for now - because she showed incredible integrity and a how can I make it better approach. I'm still unsubscribing - but I do like to keep an eye out for value... Who are you unsubscribing from?

I have subscribed to countless email lists over the last 2 or so years desperately trying to lean the ins and outs of internet marketing. Funny thing most of the owners of those lists all promoted WA which eventually brought me here.

I soon realized that I didn't need to subscribe to them any longer because all the information they had provided all came from their training within WA and I could just join and get it all and more.

So I just unsubscribed from them all although I have to admit I miss all the juicy free ebooks they provided =)

LOL yeah so juicy that you've read them all right ;) Strange circle of influence if they all lead to WA I'm thinking

Sad to say, but I had to unsubscribe from PPG's list. I still visit her blog occasionally but her e-mails are all offers from this guy or that. Not a lot of value.

HI, firstly I made an email box for everything except WA and WA related items so that I could more easily see what was coming my way that I might not want to continue with.
This seemed to work becasue I did a cull about six months ago and to date I haven't been discovered by many and those that have I didn't accept or unsubscribed immediately. There are still one or two which irritatingly I can't seem to unsubscribe from no matter what I try but it's now a simple delete key job when they arrive. The one player that I have kept since I started IM which is about a year ago now, and before WA is Hubspot because they have some good publications which are free and I find them useful to go through.

Regards

Hudson

Now I also "was" on the hubspots email list .. It's probably one of the best "opt-out" email video's I've seen..

I actually spent time yesterday unfriending a lot of folks on FB from when I was involved with another company. Really liked the product but the support was hugely lacking. Got tired of reading their stuff and the money you could make.

I've committed myself to WA and so am "trimming away" those that distract me from my goals. Clear your inbox...clear your mind.

I've unsubscribed from almost everyone. I could see some value learning from other marketers, but I'm learning so much actively, ie searching for stuff I WANT to know, that it's tough to keep up on someone trying to feed me more stuff in my inbox.

Plus, I mean, I don't want to knock the industry, but honestly, most marketers are maintaining a list JUST to provide themselves with an 'in' to sell me something. They provide value, but it's a sleezy kind of 'the first one is free' type value.

Looking forward to hear what everyone else has to say!

Cheers for the insights and your experience Nathan..

I AM knocking the industry and that does include the majority of them out there ...
... You said it and I;ll second it - it's a sleezy type of added value and it soon stops.
