Here Is Why Sending A Personal Email Via Your Autoresponder Is A Bad Idea

Email marketing is one of the best ways to make money online.
Using an auto responder is the best way to do email marketing.
This is true as long as you don't abuse it.
There are a couple of ways you can abuse your autoresponder.
1.
Spam.
Of course this is the most common form of email marketing abuse.
You spam someone when you send them an email they did not agree to receive.
The way around this when you are using an autoresponder require them to opt in to your mailing list.
You can even go so far as to make this a double opt in.
This means they must enter their name and email address.
They must also go to their email inbox and click on a link that is confirming their desire to be on your list.
If you do this you are not spamming and you are protected against any complaints against you.
2.
Personal email.
This is kind of a pet peeve of mine.
I don't like to get emails where the words "personal please read" is in the subject line and then I find out that it is the same email being sent out to the entire list.
One way I know this is when I am on a list with more then one email and I get 2 of these from the same marketer.
Personal means that they are talking to me only.
If you are mass mailing your email list with "personal" in the subject line this is not a personal email.
I just got one email from a fairly well known Internet marketer with the words "personal please read" in the subject line.
When I opened it there was the words "Hi".
It didn't have my first name.
It even had the word "team" in the first sentence.
When it doesn't even have your name in the opening of the email it is not a personal email.
When it says the word team in the body you know it's been sent out to all of the subscribers on that list.
To make matters even worse some Internet marketers do this in the pre written follow up emails.
These are set to go out an a pre scheduled time.
There is no way these are "personal" emails.
If you are going to send emails you want personalized to somebody, then just send them through your regular email service.
Don't use your autoresponder to mass email somebody trying to make them think that you are just talking to them.
Will this take longer? Of course it will, but if you do not have a personal relationship with them you can not send a personal email.
If you do it to me I will unsubscribe from your list and we ill not make money together any longer.
