Bad news - Terrible news - Awful news - POLL

by kf 6 replies
Just for fun, I was wondering what versions of the 'Bad News' subject line people might be receiving - (the F.K. pre-launch videos & affiliates) - and how many on a daily (hourly???) basis?

Here are the versions I've seen so far:

- Bad news
- Terrible news
- Bad news and worse news
- Horrible news

      I am not on any IM'ers email list.

      Distracts me from my own businesses.

          I'm on several lists in a variety of niches outside IM just to observe other marketers. It made me chuckle to see the number of "bad news" emails I got in the past couple days. Outside IM thought, I don't doubt it works. It still made me open the emails

            Yeah,

            But I think as marketers start using this approach more and more and more, it's not going to have that effect anymore...

            Everyone will have become immune against those bad news. Of course, this is just a generalisation, but it may happen.

            i was afraid it it was really a bad news. it may be for so many old members. but not so much for me. quite new. bound to be old anyway.

    I actually didn't get any. Maybe I did and the marketer was clever enough to word it so that I didn't notice.
