This is why I unsubscribed from your list...

22 replies
Sorry, but I think that 5 to 6 emails A DAY (each and every single day) is a little bit excessive.

You couldn't pay me enough to be on your list.

It's like being at a party and you keep bumping to the same person wanting to talk to you, over and over again... I'd be like "wth? you again?"

Even if it's someone that I can learn a lot from, I unsubscribed from peeople that email me too often. Even a friend whom I learned a lot from I had to unsubscribe. I just don't need for someone to be emailing daily, specially if most of those emails are for affiliate sales.

Just something to take note of. To each his own.

    to me

    When he found out I was
    making more than him
    working only 1 hour a day online.

    Here's the system I'm using to do this!

    He calmed down a bit when I
    was able to buy him a brand
    new car out of the money I had earned.

    Hope you're having a great week.

    P.s Here's what I used to get my dad back
    on my side again.



    ahhhhhhhhhh shut up please, your tactics just made me unsubscribe, and also the fact you send me garbage multiple times a day didnt help. -.-

    I don't mind daily emails if there is value. I get daily emails from Early To Rise, Brian Tracy, Tech Republic, Tech Target, and Men's Health Magazine amongst others.

    The thing is that all of them add value, are interesting, and help me in one way or the other.

    Most of the typical WF/IM type daily emails fail in those areas which is why they don't last long in my inbox. However if Jeff Smith (Higher Trust Marketing), Paul Myers, Paul Evans (Nicheology) and a few select others had daily emails I could deal with them (and enjoy them) because they fit my criteria.

    Solo ads are the reason marketers tend to exagerate. They cash in the 30 bucks and mail a super saturated flooded list of subscribers - and they wonder why they get no response and then negative feedback.

    1 email a day is a maximum that I'm able to tolerate. More is too much.

    If you want to go deeper with this - I'll tell you that this is the main reason for Gmail implementing the Promotions tab. Honest and common sense marketers are punished for this and it's not fair.

      The gmail tab is actually a GOOD THING. It forces people to send out quality and truly care for their list members. It will only get worse for spammers and dirtbag marketers. And that is a good thing.

    5-6 emails per day is not a logical strategy for me...if you give great value I think you can send 1 email per day but 5 or 6 are too much. Personally I send 1 email every two days and give as much value as I can !

    HaHa, definitely agree man!

    As well as that I unsubscribe when don't have a clue who they are.

    I might buy a plugin or something so I don't really get to hear their voice or see their face in a video and then they're sending me offers every day from some name I don't recognize.

    UNSUBSCRIBED

    Right now there s only actually about 3 marketers who I am deliberately still subscribed to.

    The others send me emails I never read, I'm just haven't got around to unsubscribing from them yet.

    Might get on that right now!

    I totally agree, 1 email per day is the absolute maximum I'm willing to tolerate. I once unsubscribed a few hours after subscribing, as during that time I had already been spammed with about 10 emails. In a few hours! Seriously!

    I don't mind getting sold to but the thing that ignores me the most is getting emails 5-7 times per week.

      For me any more than 2 or 3 emails a week is too much. When I send out a broadcast I spend the 1st paragraph apologizing if its the 2nd message in the same day...

      Even 1 email every single day is enough for me to call it quits.

    I hate dimesales... If a john doe deserves a better price than I do just because he saw and decided to buy your product first, im not gonna accept it....

    So unless your emails are like God's revelations for which I should stay up all day and night, you will def find one subscriber less...

    He's emailing you 6 times a day because he sold 6 mailings for that day.
    Or because he needs to deliver a certain amount of clicks by a certain date.

    The sad part about these solo ad providers is that they eventually weed themselves out.
    ESP's don't like these types of mailings and each one will blacklist their business.
    Eventually, they'll be on their own self-hosted platform desperately trying to get clicks. Then their host will blacklist them.
    It makes money in the short run, but you slowly poison your assets over time.

    If you're lucky, you'll actually get unsubscribed from these solo ad providers. I tried unsubscribing from Igor's list dozens of times and he keeps re-importing my email to his new email solution despite the fact I unsubbed from each platform. I got tired of unsubscribing so I started reporting them all as spam.

    When I get 3 emails from you about the same product, all at the same time. Did you forget to segment your list before trying to split test your emails? And I get more than one set of these "Triple Triad Emails" per day? I'm out.

      It's obvious that email sending practices (in terms of frequency) vary from one marketer to the next.

      It's also obvious (from this thread) that those receiving emails tend to vary in the frequency of mail they will tolerate from marketers.

      So my suggestion is this.

      For marketers:
      1. Send the number of emails that you have tested and tracked to be the most efficient and effective in your niche to your subscribers;
      2. Ask regularly what frequency your subscribers want from you;
      3. Only send quality emails (whether info only or offers);
      4. Set the expectation with your subscribers of a given frequency and then stick to it (very important).
      5. Don't try to please everyone. Find out what works for you and your subscribers and don't give in to the oddball that demands something different.
      For subscribers:
      1. Give the marketer a chance to prove his/her quality and frequency as stated at the outset of your relationship;
      2. If either (frequency or quality) doesn't happen to your liking, unsubscribe and move on.

      The best to all of you,

      Steve

    Agreed,

    My favourite is when they tell you to unsubscribe to everyone else because they are leading you down the wrong path and how their product is truly all you'll need! Then to only find out that you are getting multiple emails a day from that person with affiliate links in every single one.

    Faith in your own product much? .... Get fecked, UNSUBSCRIBED!
