Thank you to everyone who welcomed me to Active Rain!
I am going to try to give out an internet marketing tip every few days. So, here is the first of many to come. So, you better get your pen and pad ready. This one is about email marketing.
EMAIL MARKETING NO NOs
As the title of this blog says, "You did what with your Outlook?!", I am referring to Microsoft Outlook. You would be amazed at how many people try to use thier outlook to send out bulk emails to their friends, contacts and sometimes to people they dont really know.
This is BIG NO NO!!
I know it is easier and cheaper than using a real email marketing program, like Constant Contact. But there are several things that can happen to you if you do. If you are using your business email address, (yourcompany.com) it can get black listed and marked as spam by the major email providers, bellsouth, aol, yahoo, etc.
Another risk you take is getting sued by someone for Spamming them.
There are several rules and precautions you MUST take when attempting to market yourself through email.
