Comment on Building a List of Email Addresses by Andrew Pearce http://www.direct-to-market.co.uk/articles/index.php/2010/05/email-address-list-building-and-marketing/comment-page-1/#comment-36 Andrew Pearce Fri, 21 May 2010 16:08:19 +0000 http://www.direct-to-market.co.uk/articles/?p=70#comment-36 Hi Alec, I can see your point that - especially in the early days when you are desperate to grow your list - there is perhaps not too much harm in sending a single email that will take things no further if the reader takes no positive action to join your list. However, it is technically an unsolicited email (i.e. spamming) and you must of course decide for yourself how that settles with your conscience. Be wary too of getting yourself blacklisted. Of interest to other readers I'm sure will be: 1) Did you offer a reasonable opt-in incentive to encourage those who received your email to sign up; and 2) What percentage of those that you approached in this manner then went on to do so? (I am presuming that you tracked these signups separately?) Hi Alec,

I'd agree totally with your views that in building a list you want willing subscribers to your newsletter who are more likely to actually read what you send them, rather than ignore it because they never wanted it in the first place. I admit I have myself come across lists of suitable candidates for my list and although not ideal I did send them an email with an option for them to join my newsletter. Alec Hi Andrew,

Any thinking person would understand all of this, be they client or provider, but sometimes we need to see the obvious laid out before us, to refresh and sharpen our point of view. Great value, as ever. You have an excellent way of putting the obvious eloquently.
