I received an email this morning... from Jay Cross' Internet Time Group ... and right there, in the first line was...
I am removing your name from my mailing list....."
Gulp... what had I done wrong??
Because you need to read on....
"In fact, I am destroying the entire list.
Newsletters cause more annoyance than good, so I shutting this one down. Shotgun email marketing doesn't fit the way I want to do business. "
Jay has liberated me from his email newsletter! (and 3,776 other people!)
Now this email has had the most positive effect on my day - it's made me realise how many email newsletters I receive and how annoying they are....
Well - actually, email is really annoying - but that's another story!
Most of the email newsletters I receive I have also subscribed to by RSS feed into my Netvibes account. So effectively I'm clogging up my Inbox with extra reading...
I've also been encouraging the MentorNet particpants - women in small business - to use blogs with RSS as their newsletters, rather than email newsletters. But they've been very hesitant and skeptical - I just can't wait to show them this!
As far as I know - Jay is one of the first to officially pronounce this action!
Come on everyone - let's see some more of this!
