"Your Registration Is Confirmed" Email Subject Lines

by Willie Crawford 14 replies
I'm getting a lot of emails lately from well-known
marketers with that subject line.

Typically the email says that I'm confirmed for a
webinar or teleseminar that I didn't personally
register for... unless I did it in my sleep!

Often they do include links to events hosted at
services such as GoToWebinar, etc.

I wonder if some "guru" is teaching that tactic.

I'm getting so many that it could become annoying
because if I start ignoring them, I could miss a
reminder for a teleseminar that I really DID sign
up for... or even one that I'm the featured expert
on

    I'm getting 'genuine' spam that uses that subject line.

    Gotta think that's not a good tactic then.

      I've been getting those for ages now...

      It seems like the guru's students are
      taking it to the next level...

        Um...Hi Willie. It's not me honest. I am however excited about our upcoming interview on the 9th for the 8WeeksAway teleseminar series.

        If any warriors haven't heard Willie on radio program or any other event, you're really missing some great stuff.

        I must not be on enough lists to get that kind of subject line stuff...is 35 too many to be on?

        Thanks again Willie.

          So many people use them that they must be effective on some level...

          BUT

          Those that do use them should be strung upside down by their toenails and be forced to repeat the golden rule while being whipped with a wet noodle.

          Irritating doesn't begin to cover it.

          Not the worst though. I have heard of people sending emails with stuff like "your child is in the hospital".

          Kinda sad...

    I get those quite a bit, too.

    Even funnier is that I get them sent to system emails that I KNOW never registered for anything. Fortunately, my system emails are directed to a folder that I just quickly glance through and then engage in Mass Deletions.

    So far, my system emails have been:

    * confirmed to many seminars they didn't register for.
    * notified of login attempts to bank accounts I don't have.
    * informed that a credit card I don't own is expired.
    * asked to confirm orders that I never placed.
    * encouraged to increase the girth and length of my .... uh ... well ...
    * invited to receive funds from deposed South African princes.
    * asked to renew domain names I don't own.
    * and on and on and on ...

    The ol' "delete" key really gets a workout. I can't even see the word "Delete" on my keyboard any more!

      @Peter,

      Gotta love the internet -- "genuine" spam.

      I've never been much of a fan of trick subject lines. I get so many canned emails now that I have started deleting emails if they even mention certain people's names.

      Amazing how my trash bin is full and I have so much more time in the day now.

    Sorry about that, Willie. I should have asked before registering you for all those events!

    It's really disappointing to see that subject line being used by well-known marketers. Why work so hard to build up a reputation and then blow it by telling an obvious flat out lie?

      Well, it doesn't actually say that you signed up, just that you are confirmed!

        I know what you mean ... but to me that's "weasle words" if I never opted in to their list in the first place.

        If I already double opted in, then I guess it is just another little ploy to get you to open the mail and it'll soon be anohter over-used ploy that'll die out.

          Yeah, I first got that Subject line as spam. If they're looking for openings and click-throughs they're not getting any from me. The spammers already conditioned me to hit the Delete button unless I remembered going there.

            Reminds me of the junk mail you get from credit card companies, you know the ones.
            You have been pre-approved to receive our credit card

            At least those are good for lighting fires, the emails just give me a sore finger from deleting them.
