Many seasoned list builders have stated on numerous threads that the best way to sell a product is by building a relationship with your subscribers. Over the last year or so I have subscribed to a countless number of lists from countless people...most if not all are well know names on this forum. I have yet to get an email from any of them that truly builds a relationship. Each email contains an affiliate link or a link to their own sales page. None of the emails contain anything of real value. What gives? Are these "gurus" being hypocritical? Am I missing something? Why not practice what you preach??
