So today, I just got the email with the above title and it read:

Barbara

I sent this to you last week and it doesn't
look like you got it?

==>> product link

Is your email working ok?

Call me old-school, but such tactics ensure I will *never* click on your links to buy at all. I despise lying!

Grrr........

    Hahahaha.. That is quite funny.

    This email will get as many clicks as the one sent by a Nigerian prince needing you to supply bank details for a few million dollars.

    That's why I keep my email reader set not to display images by default. Also why I use spamcop, even though that is somewhat ineffective, it gives my some satisfaction

      I'd rename this thread "Yet another way to be a useless marketer and lose subscribers fast".

        Absolutely agreed. I also agree with the person who said it's kind of like the Nigerian scam artists.

      It also made him unsubscribe after. :p

      It's one thing getting someone to open the email but at least be clever and don't look like your so full of s*** you'll burst, as soon as the emails open.

      Anyone who thinks getting people to open the email is the only thing that matters has missed the whole point.

      If I was selling widgets, door to door, I could get you to the front door by chucking a brick through your window. You would however be unlikely to buy my stuff when you got to the said front door.

      Same thing really.
