Wrote this then I don't know why I lost it so I have to do it again.
I don`t do email marketing because of not so positive experiences I`ve had in the past. and I do not optin either as I get tired of sales emails.
Now recently I bought a product so this person got my email address. The product was brilliant but soon the sales emails started, the person sends a minimum of 4 emails a day every single day selling one product or the other.
I wrote to the person asking them to please stop sending me these emails but they just ignored me, the sales emails keep on coming.
Now it would be easier to unsubscribe but the product I bought has a lifetime membership for future updates so unsubscribing will mean losing out on future updates.
Now I know the money is in the list, but sending your list emails every single day selling a product is to me desperate, tactless and a no-no.
Maybe I`m being difficult but this to me is not the way email marketing is supposed to be done. We`re all looking for sales but be tactful how you sell.
But is this how email marketing is done? if this is how you do it then I feel you`re pushing your subscribers away. I`m so tired of this person`s email that the max I do is check the title after that it`s going directly to trash so the person is winning nothing from me just because of how they sell products to their list.

Sending multiple emails per day is only fine if you are running an ecommerce store. Some software enables you to see which person clicked on the buy button or even placed products in their basket but did not decide to buy at that moment

This is where retargeting comes in and is very profitable. It's not spam if you know the individual is really interested in the product.

Doing this method for affiliate marketing is bad and spammy. I send 1 email every other day and 50% of those emails are just free information or sending them to watch my youtube video.

Does he never provide any free info or tips?

i would just unsubscribe or even send him a message stating you are not happy with the amount of mail you are getting.

Some of the more successful internet marketers tend to send up to 8 emails a day to those who have already purchased from them.

I know of 3 marketers who use this tactic because it gets them sales. One war round it would be to get a new email address that you can use for junk emails if you need to be on their list.

This is not how email marketing is done I assure you and your experiences being on this person's list proves that. Contrary to popular belief the money is not in the list, it's how you get the list, the traffic and the trust which leads to all of this.

List building is tough, but once you understand the fundamentals which WA teaches you can become successful at this part too.

The funny thing is that the person I bought the product from is a WA member and has been for over 10 years, but the way they sell is a no-no to me.

Unfortunately there's a lot of bad apples out there, including those in WA who stick to outside ways to market.
