If You Scold Me, You’ve Lost Me
Maybe it’s a sign of desperation – Internet marketers becoming so frustrated by a lack of response to their offers that they lose their common sense.
This week I’ve gotten multiple emails from two different marketers. I should take the time to unsubscribe from both of them. I’m not really sure how I got on their lists in the first place, but I expect they bought a list.
However, I’m fascinated by the way they’re shooting themselves in the foot… guess I’ll watch a little longer.
What I won’t do is respond to their offers.
The first one is from a man who has been sending me a variety of offers for quite some time. I think he’s trying to find the “Magic Bullet” that will lead to Internet success.
His most recent emails have cited the experts’ advice that it takes 5 “touches” to get a new prospect to take action. (This is generally believed to be true.) Then he tells me how many times he’s written to me without a response! According to his latest message, it’s 11 times.
He may have a good product to sell, but my plate is full with writing for clients and adding real estate letter sets to the collection I sell on line.
It wouldn’t matter how good his offer sounded, I’m not going to branch out into something new just now. My time would simply be spread too thin to do anything justice.
Meanwhile, he’s trying to “guilt” me into trying his scheme. Sorry, guilt doesn’t motivate me at all.
But those messages are mild compared to one that I’ve gotten twice in the last two days.
What the hell’s the matter with you?
Are you happy being broke?
If he seriously thinks I’m going to read the rest of that message, he’s seriously crazy.
