I can see marketers stooping to this if they are doing safe list and traffic exchange type marketing, because you are competing with so many other marketer's, and maybe these methods can possibly make your email stand out.

Don't send me emails saying from a friend if I don't know you or recognize your name, I'll send it straight to spam, if it doesn't already go to spam.

I was on a webinar on with Connie Ragen Green, where she was teaching about using autoresponders effectively. She mentioned, you ought to just be straight up with your leads, heck if they opted in your funnel, why use deceptive practices to start of your relationship.

I have began to save some of these emails in a swipe file, just in case I do any safe list or traffic exchanges marketing.

Yep I agree, it is deceptive. Unfortunately it must work to some degree because it's used by some top online marketers. I've gotten the , "my buddy/friend/etc." from every top marketer I can think of. At first I thought there was something true about it but as I learned I realized they are just doing a JV deal with someone they don't know at all. It's pretty sad when these "gurus" build trust with you and then lie to you just to make a few bucks off you.

I think the gurus must be teaching these methods in their $2000. courses. :shock:

I think they work, because the people keep sending them.

I've been guilty of opening a few of these myself.

Whenever I get an email with a deceptive subject line, I report it as spam and delete it. I'm sure many others do the same.

But, I'd also guess that a very small percentage of the people who get the email open it up and click on the link.

Maybe it's just a numbers game. Either way, I think it is a very deceptive and unprofessional way to run any kind of business.
