HERE COMES THE HARD SELL, I ALWAYS LOVE IT WHEN THE EMAIL STARTS OFF LIKE THIS:
"Hi my name as _____ and while we are not currently connected, or we have not been in touch for a long time I wanted to tell you how valuable you are to me Mark E."...I want to "save you", "give you", "make you an offer!"
Valuable eh? Hmmmm
You see I always subscribe to everything as Mark E. in the first name box when registering or signing up for anything, this way I know that the spammers will scan the first name and I know it's SPAM immediately. I mean no one I know is gonna start off talking to a "valuable" connection in this way right? After they tell me how valuable I am, they then offer me free gifts, generally these are comprised of discounts, awesome offers and eBooks all FREE to their valuable connections!
Ok, Now SPAM aside, many people in my networks take this same approach. They think that hard sell and that "offer" may be too good to pass up.
So I'm gonna say this really clearly and once and for all.>>> If you are willing to help me or those around me do better you have me, if you are only looking to sell me something I have all I need. Period! And unless your free offer includes Chocolate, Wine or a ticket to the Swiss Alps on United Airlines, I'm out!
