Adventures in Bad Marketing

Last week I signed up for a trial of an email marketing service (we use that kind of thing for our prayer updates to supporters). The idea behind such services is to help create effective, professional-grade emails that people enjoy reading, and avoid being spammy by making it easy for people to sign up for or opt out of future emails.

Since signing up on March 24, I have received seven (7) emails from them– about one or two per day. The day after signing up I also received an automated phone call (a phone number was required when I signed up). This from a company that’s supposed to help you not annoy potential customers.

No thanks; I do not wish to upgrade my account.
