I want to say a big “THANK YOU” to all of my subscribers – All of you folks that are on my list, I really appreciate you!
I’ve gotten to know so many of you very well, and I’ve really enjoyed the interaction thoroughly. I’ve learned quite a bit from you all. Some of us have even gotten close, and I’ve even been privileged to help in situations in your life, and I count that a real privilege – I really do.
Please let me know if there’s anything I can do to help you, and I just wanted to say a hearty thank you.
I also want to cover something that’s been on the increase I’m noticing, and it’s with regards to spam.
Whoever signs up to my list makes a conscious choice to do so because they are interested in the incentive that I’m offering to join the list, or they want to get to know me better, whatever the reason – and that’s wonderful.
But sometimes I will send out an email, and I’ll get two or three emails sent right back immediately with a bunch of links in it, and people expect me to click on their links, whatever they have for sale and so on and so forth.
Those emails get deleted. Someone shooting back an email just full of links down the email without a word of dialogue, those get sent to my trash right away, because that’s SPAM – I haven’t signed up to anyone’s list…
If I’m on a list, (where I’ve chosen to give my email address on a page with an opt in form) I’ll check out the email, and check out what they have and what the content is, and what the offer is or whatever.
But if I send an email out from my AWeber, and you’re on my list and somebody shoots back an email with just a bunch of links, it’s going to get deleted – so they’re wasting their time.
It’s a two-way street – respect is two ways. Now, I would rather have 500 loyal, respectful subscribers rather than thousands of people that just think it’s a big link fest.
If you don’t like those rules, feel free to unsubscribe, okay? I’d rather have people that respect me, and who I respect, and we all play by the good rules, so please abide by that.
I want to say there is a distinction between someone that sends me an email and says, “Carol, I’m interested in this company, or I’m interested in this offer, can you please check it out for me? What’s your opinion about it?”
Absolutely! Especially if we have a relationship going, and it’s not the first time you’ve contacted me. Even if it is, I’ll check it out, and I will help you. I will see what my opinion is about it, and I will share those thoughts with you. So that’s totally different, I’m not talking about that.
I just want you to know that I’m here for you, and I’m here to help you, and I wanted to give those little rules because I’m seeing that on the increase, and it’s never anybody I know. It’s always somebody that’s incognito, and doesn’t really contact me on a personal basis. I don’t know what they stay on my list for, I really don’t.
But anyway, my true followers – I really appreciate you, and let me know what I can do to help you.
Please let me know if you have a request for content, If you would like to learn a certain training, if you would like me to do a video tutorial request on something special, if you’re struggling in a certain area – I would be more than happy to help.
So please let me know.
