Don’t you just HATE that? You run across someone you think can help you with your business and get on their list.
Might have been a cool freebie they were offering, but after a second thought you changed your mind.
After all, you have already seen the emails a few times.
Nothing wrong with that, a lot of systems have pre-written emails to help get you going. But throw some of your own messages in too.
Better yet, rewrite them a little.
I’ll be the first to admit, some of my emails su**, leave something to be desired. No matter, I’ve met a few pretty knowledgeable people on Facebook and in the blogosphere that are helping me out.
And I sincerely hope that in some small way I’m helping them as well. If in no other way as comic relief because of my own hmm, unique way of looking at things.
But when someone wants off of my list it’s just a click away, “Sorry to see you go and I hope I see you later”. Besides that, I don’t want to be where I’m not wanted.
So why is it that some people don’t have an easy to use unsubscribe link in their autoresponder emails?
Are they so needy and desperate that they are scared to death that a subscriber will leave, almost holding them hostage.
To me that’s pretty much spam, making it harder than it has to be to unsubscribe from their list.
What do you think? Am I being unreasonable?
I mean it’s not that difficult to send a blank email with ‘Unsubscribe’ in the heading, it’s a matter of principle. I don’t think they have any. Principles that is.
