I have a client who won’t accept my emails because he has an AntiSpam program sitting in place, unfortunately for him he does not realise this is damaging his business. When his AntiSpam filter kicks in it tells me to click on a link and then enter a name and password, then it tells me that by accepting this I will sign up for a 30 day trial of the program !
No chance…I have seen how such programs hinder my clients without me signing up to it as well. Most computers these days have very good spam/junk mail filters without adding any further complications to the process.
My client does not realise he is now off the list of possible Panasonic AF101 owners…because I have no way of contacting him other than email.
One other client has a far “safer” spam filter…it asks you to verify a 6 letter word then tells you that your next emails will be accepted. So the moral of the story is don’t jump in feet first when you see the glossy adds telling you “NO MORE SPAM…EVER” as that very same filter may just cost you the next big purchase or a place in a very long queue.
