when I'm looking in this forum about email marketing I can't find much about a simple thing such as just sending an email to build a relation. Everyone seems to be busy with building lists and buying and selling them etc.
If you know what I'm talking about and have Recent experience with this I would like to ask you what you think about this.
Examples in general that I have in mind:
1: Asking someone to do a link or banner exchange.
2: Building a great service both you and the web master will benefit from. Explain the service and ask to join.
3: Asking the web site owner if you can help them with something like Web design, photos or graphics.
Do you have some additional ideas that could be added to the list?
