Newbie - a couple of questions

by KingLiam 7 replies
Hey guys.

I work with a team of people from all over the world. We have about 10 websites, for various demographics, however all deliver pretty much the same service.

For the site which I manage myself, I am trying to learn about email marketing. I have a couple of questions and will really appreciate any help.

1) When a customer buys a product, is it legal to save their email address even when having no intentions in selling it on to anyone else?

2) How does it work when a visitor is reading a blog, and after a minute or so of reading a little popup message appears on screen offering them something for free if they join the mailing list?

I understand these are very newbie questions, especially the second one but my technical skills in this area lack.

Thanks for your time,

Liam

    I'm not a lawyer ... but, I don't think it's illegal to capture an email address upon purchase ... I do it, Amazon does it, every online business does it.

    The popup thing is a popup opt-in and OptinMonster ... as well as dozens of other applications can help you accomplish this task.

    1) Is not illegal but you risk your mails go into spam and if you don t have a lot of subsribers (at least 350) your autoresponder could delete your campaign|

    2) Is a service offered by autoresponder as geresponse! It appeared automatically!

    You can saved email address onto your list. It's not illegal because he already purchased.
