Proper Business Protocol?

Last Update: November 03, 2019

Hey everyone,

I need some input on proper business protocol.

Someone that opted into my email list sent me an advertisement after I sent him an email.

It seems like spamming and underhanded to me.

Is this an acceptable practice?

Thanks for your input!

An interesting, propostion, usually email marketing is one way traffic.

I guess we can't market to marketers, in this case they just market back.

A tactic that is emerging on LinkedIn, at the moment.

Probably the easiest option is to unsubscribe, that particular marketer.

Yes, that's what I wanted to do, but this person does not give an unsubscribe option.

So what do I do? Maybe wait for him to send another email and report him?

A sly way to advertise, for sure, but it's deceptive and disrespectful to optin into someone's list only to advertise to them.

If they spam you with their own offers I would just remove them from the email list so they don't waste your time.
