Many including noteworthy CopyWriter Bob Bly slamming him !
I will paraphrase a piece of Ben's email ( so as to not piss him off as I know he is touchy with Infringements )
' The ONLY reason or purpose
to have a Website
(with only a few exceptions)
is to build a responsive email list
It is not to brand yourself.
It is not to showcase your products.
Or give some education to folks.
Or not to show off your intelligence or abilities or skills.
Or even to impress hot girls. '
(End of paraphrase)
What do you all think about Mr. Settles and his recent proclamation here ??
Too narrow minded ? Not utilizing the whole Internet for optimal Engagement ? Off target ?? Spot on ?? etc...
Just to be fair to him since Ben is the topic here.... Ben Settle - Top Email Marketing Specialist
(Disclosure : Awhile back ( probably 2 years ago) I started a Thread about how I unsubscribed to Ben's newsletter as his extraordinary topics were getting ..well too ordinary and cumbersome. But on second thought I decided to join back up again and he has some good content. Not all the time but enough where you can really get some good insight to email Marketing ! And quite honestly a really sick as hell
Email CopyWriter, imo)
