Not an informative post, just a poll I guess.
Say you opted in on some IM guru mailing list.
So he starts sending you daily or every two days emails. And sometimes you get to his landing page (assuming he sells his own product). So you land on the page and you see the - "only <span text-decoration: line-through;">100, 82, <span color:red;">62</span></span> copies left".
Or download now cuz I'll take this guide off tonight. Or every email he sends starts with your full name or only your first name to make it look personal (when you know he's just using the aweber fullname/firstname options]. Or he sends you some 12 page pdf that has little or no real value
Don't you feel a bit offended.... I mean sure if he's addressing the common n00b or newbie, sure, I use these "limited time" scaring techniques, but if he's marketing to savvy marketers.... don't you feel like.... right....... sure - only 60 copies left (when we know it's a static HTML who has no relation to the amount of sells).
Dunno... maybe it's just me
What do you think?
