So last week, I sent an email to my list (IM niche) and it got massive response/opens.
The subject line was "Get Off My List!".
And on the body it says:
Last week I got a complaint from on of my subscribers about sending too much email.
(...err...4 emails a week is too much now?)
Here's my honest and unfiltered reply:
"GET OFF MY LIST!!!"
On my very first email I sent you, I did say that I'll be sending you 'DAILY' emails.
Maybe in his little fairy world 'daily' means once a week ... I don't know... I guess something got lost in the translation.
Plus, I also mentioned that I'll be promoting stuff that I know you guys NEED every chance I get.
Now, I can't be more UPFRONT than that
I got the idea when a 7 month subscriber sent me an email complaining how often I send emails.
Aside from the opens I also got a TON (more like 28...for me that's a lot already. haha!) replies and some are kinda funny like:
"Take it easy on the little snowflake"
"He must've missed that bright, bluishly shiny unsubscribe button. lol!"
I felt like sharing because illiciting responses like these ... for me was a big win.
