9 people unsubscribed...

by lakshaybehl 22 replies
In an hour...

My server was down and one of them was kind enough (or frustrated enough) to let me know he was saying Goodbye because the links aren't working...


Now this was in the IM niche where you would expect people to know that Internet Ain't perfect...

Sob... sob...

Any consolidations? Or comments?

Or suggestions?

Appreciated.

        Sure.......... you can't make Omlette without broken eggs

        Don't worry man that's IM for you but its always better to let them go.The more loyal subscribers that you have the more money you've got to get from it

        That's strange. Are they recent subscribers? - sometimes people subscribe with a negative outlook on things... it takes a few broadcasts for them to start considering you someone that they can trust.

            @Jay,

            You are right... I agree 100%. But the thing is that most IM people do experience the same problems some time or the other... And we should understand when others are facing them too...

            @ Darren... Even the best servers have downtimes....

            @ Josh... You hit the nail on the spot.... They were recent subscribers... And I understand what you are saying...

            That's the fastest unsubscription I have ever experienced... And that may be the reason why I am so freaked out...

              Not really true, good servers would never have a downtime!

                There are lots of fish in the sea. I would rather see the impatient ones who expect perfection go subscribe to someone else's list. Nobody's perfect.

                  I love unsubscribes. Cleans the riff raff off my list. Only room for my good, loyal members there.

                    Some people are just serial unsubs. Getting hit all at once is a little hard on the ego and I would probably feel bad for about a minute. Then I take Kevin's attitude and am grateful for the cleanup.

                    I guess I will have to take your philosophy and learn to apply it too...

                    Riff Raff's gone baby and I have had 43 new subscriptions after that hour.... So I am happy now..

                    I especially like it when those who unsubscribe can't leave without saying goodbye in a very stylish way... LOL

                    Hey if it makes you feel good, my subscribers only like it when I send them an offer to buy... I must have trained them well because they get mad when I send them awesome free stuff, but when I chase it with a few solid promos No complaints...

                      Hey Lak Man...

                      Rather then waste your time sweatin' 9 people...that blew the coop due to technical problems.....I'd worry about the ones that are still with you.

                      Cuz those are your real customers.

                      Not the ones who jumped ship......they were just passangers lookin' for a reason to jump off anyway.

                      Cuz real customers are loyal. Real customers don't bail out for the reasons you describe.

                      So in the end....you just cleaned house a bit.

                      Were it me....I'd go say hey to the good people still with you. And not give another thought to those who left...cuz they weren't ever gonna stick around anyway.

                      Train ME how to train them to like it that way Mike...

                      Please Please Please....

                      People on my list thank me only when I give them some free stuff... which is basically a disguised salting for an upcoming affiliate promotion...

              Seems there's a lot of people out there in the IM niche who just look for the tiniest reason to unsubscribe..I have a feeling those people probably weren't buyers anyways.

      Amar, I have got many people to check it, and there seems to be not problem at all...

      I have checked it myself enough times as well..

      The only possibility is that due to a slow connection, the loading time was large... Though I am not really sure about that as well...
