Is everyone getting emails with $633,798.55 in the subject line?

by Dana_W 10 replies
It just makes me laugh, because it's exactly like the spate of "Bad News" we all got recently, thanks to a certain shaggy haired surfer dude.

I got three emails so far with variations of "Dana, 633,798.55?" in the subject line. I still check all these emails out because I like to see what other internet marketers are doing, but when I get multiple emails using the same gimmick I tend to glaze over.

    I've had nearly 10 emails that are all pretty much the same - doesn't make for exciting reading I must say! I just deleted them all straight away without even opening them.

    I think many marketers really waste a good opportunity by not coming up with a decent subject line - I'd definitely open the email if I saw something remotely original.

      Yeah, I got 'em too. They're not even well written emails. That's the most
      disappointing part about them.

      This person needs to take a course in copywriting or something.

    If I am I feel confident they are going directly into the trash can.

      I just got ANOTHER one! The thing is, they're all from different people, but each one of them is using a subject line that focuses on the exact dollar amount someone allegedly earned. I guess it's the herd mentality.

    It's the guru of the month time. There have been quite a few biggy's over the last couple of months. I guess this author wanted to jump on the bandwagon one more time for 2008. Yes he is successful and will prob make $50K from the launch but how many purchasers actually go on and replicate similar numbers?

    A very small percentage I would suggest.

    Nathan, I'm sure that's the case with every launch. I doubt anyone who buys this product is going to make even close to $633,798.55. And call me a skeptic, but frankly, I doubt the person who created that product really, honestly made that much.

      I have received my fair share, I wish if they are going to reuse the same letter over and over they might reright it with a little thought. I have only been doing this eight months and can do a better job. Trust me I'm not very good!

    Are these emails promoting the same product? What is it?

    At least it's something different than Viagra or fake watches.

    Some Clickbank Domination product. I didn't pay a lot of attention to it, but yes, each email is promoting the same product.

      its andrew fox's product the follow up to dominating cb, and I have to say no doubt it will be rehashed stuff but....

      I also have to say he has made that kind of money and then some, he's famous for having a yacht and a "red sports car" you now the type.

        I find email with income "hooks" in them to be interesting.

        I can't say that they don't (if they didn't, why would they keep being sent out) but they cater to the people who spend, spend, spend, and never learn a thing.

        Can you make that much with IM. Sure, tons of people are doing it. However, the people who buy products which promise "the red sports car" are just missing the point.

        This is a business. It involves math (sorry for those who hate math), psychology, marketing, business, accounting, computer skills, etc. It's a business like no other and, arguably, much easier than most. But it is a business.

        I hate getting these emails knowing that they are preying on the unwise. I hate to say that many will never get the memo that this business requires work...not some product.

        It's sad but c'est la vie.

        Cheers,

        Brad Spencer



        PS- I have got at least 8 emails of this nature recently. Just deleted 3 today
