I Can't Believe What I Just Saw!

I was unsubscribing from a list, and on the unsub page, it says "Sorry to see you go - Please accept this parting gift!" with a link. I click on the link, and IT SENDS ME TO AN OPT-IN FORM!

:confused:

    Are you serious? That is crazy! I guess I am really not shocked. I just think it is in poor taste. People can be interesting. LOL

      I agree, I lol'd as well.

      I'd be real curious to know the person's opt-in rate from that page. Too funny.

      Fill out that opt in form with the list owner's name and use the email address used to contact you. Probably things will go no-where, but I'm always game for a laugh

      Just my thoughts,

      Jeff.

    Yes I have had that happen too. Amazing, I just deleted and yes it is desperate.
    I thought unsubscribe was like saying NO obviously to some people it means MAYBE.
    LOL

    Hi All,

    OP you say you were sent to an OPT in form. Was there a free offer for opting in? If not that was strange.

    However, if there was a legitimate offer along with the Optin it is only good sense to try to save a customer or list member, unless of course you feel that you don't want to be bothered with anyone crazy enough to leave your list in the first place, that "type" not being your target.

    With all due respect to all in this thread what the OP witnessed was not "desperate," "sneaky," or anything else "bad." It was marketing.

    @Mathew, you said, "They did not want you to leave..." You are correct.

    @Lamargray, you said. "I guess they just want you to buy, buy, buy," Yep, When you go to work, you want to get paid, paid, paid. When you put your money in the bank you want the bank to Pay, pay, pay Interest and when a marketer has a list he wants you to Buy, buy, buy.

    This is hilarious, do you know if opting in on the form led to a list on the same person's autoresponder, or was it perhaps some one else's offer?
