I think its time to unsubscribe from email lists
I do not have any opt-ins on my sites, not really sure why, I just never got to it plus, I opted in to the wrong lists,without being told, being a member of their list let me know I can`t succeed in email marketing.I know they say
"The money is in the list" but how about they change it to "the disturbance and indirect show of desperation is in the list?"
I`m subscribed mostly to mom bloggers, small blogs that I hoped to feel like human, not a number, but..........what a pain it has turned out to be.
I think I`m subscribed to Max 10 or maybe less, but emails keep coming in at a speed I can not keep up.Sure the goal of having a list is to sell to your subscribers but please,give me a break,who tries to sell something every 2nd or 3rd day? 1 email will have 4 different affiliate links,then there will be a polite reminder the next day if you did not open, then comes the ........" U hope you`re not surprised to get an email from me so soon again I misquoted the date or I forgot to mention the % discount or whatever" email a day later. Then a few hours later a new email arrives with this "you must check this product that did XY".
And it goes on and on, honest it`s such a pain and in MY OWN EYES cheap and desperate.
I wrote 2 of the said list owners and said politely, please do not send me emails I`m not interested, I`m in your list because I bought your X product and if I unsubscribe, I will lose my lifetime access to future upgrades"
Stop Forcing People To unsubscribe From Your Email List
I know people do things differently, and maybe it works for them, but for me personally, it shows desperation.I know I do recieve their shiny income reports (with affiliate links for 1 product or the other) but it still does not impress me.There is just no way I could market that way.
If you`re reading this as an email marketer, please maybe take minutes and think of how you treat your list, but don`t take my post personally.
I know I did blog about this is the past but I felt the need to do it again. It`s ok to sell to your list, but it`s not ok to try and oversell because in the end, they do not even open your emails then after a while, they will just unsubscribe because they find you to be a disturbance
My English is not the best around but I hope my post did not offend anyone doing email marketing. For me, it`s time to unsubscribe to the "useless" emails that just takes my inbox space and time to delete them.
