Several weeks ago I received an email promoting the services of a company doing formblasting.
They explained that formblasting sends your message to website owners via the contact Us page on their website. Essentially, the formblasting service provider has a script or bot that trolls thousands of websites and completes the Contact Us page with your message.
They tout this as a great way to promote your business or service to website owners. For a fee of $20 or $30 they will send your message to 20,000 website owners. It seemed like a good idea to me so I went for it. What a HUGE mistake!!!!!!
What will happen is that in the formblasting process, they will sign up your email address up to thousands of lists.
You won't generate a single valuable contact for your business from any of the thousands of websites that were blasted, but your inbox will be filled with many emails (that come daily) from all the lists you were signed up for.
And it will take you weeks to unsubscribe from each of the lists.
I was stupid and did not research the pitfalls of formblasting. If anyone sends you an email offer form blasting services, STAY AWAY and RUN FOR THE HILLS!!!!!!!
