MLM CLASSROOM 1 - Email Still King & Spam Filters Gone Crazy!

EMAIL MARKETING STILL KING 2009

Jan 30 2009 - We see all the rants about Social Marketing and new tricks of Web - Internet Marketing but they are: 1. An Introduction 2. Email captures but not necessarily how to help a person with your opportunity.  What do you do with an email list after you build it?  You have to stay in touch with them.  That take us back to. Guess What?  Email marketing!  Take a look at this!

Jan 20 2009 - The death of email marketing has long been predicted, but it’s still kicking. Open rates seem to have remained consistent over the past year ranging between 19-21%, several tests including Epsilon, which released its Q3 2008 U.S. Email Trends and Benchmarks Results. Click rates also rose 27.6% from the previous quarter, and the average volume per client increased 13%. Email is currently driving an average of $0.14 in revenue per email delivered  by the study published by Adotas online business magazine. This test tracked 6.2 billion Emails.  The MLM WatchDog also tracked data collected by MLM specialists for Email the Auto-responder system Income buddy www.incomebuddy.com  whose results matched the study published by Adotas online magazine.

Is Your MLM Email Getting Through?

During December 2008 spam reached an all time high, according to anti-spam technology vendor Brightmail. Over 21 billion of more than 40 billion e-mail messages scanned by Brightmail in the course of providing its service were identified as unsolicited bulk commercial e-mail, the company said in September 2008 release. So we can say Spam Filters Have Gone Crazy Killing Legal MLM Opt-in Email! <:< Non-Spam Emails

A Free 98% Solution TEST YOUR EMAIL MESSAGE AGAINST SPAM ASSASSIN LIST! GREAT TOOL BY LYRIS!

It is being estimated that 30-40% of legitimate MLM emails (including permission opt-ins) are being wiped out by spam filters! As spam has increased and more people get upset - more efforts go into blocking spam. The trouble is that they get the good email too!

The large Internet portals, hosts and carriers are going all out to wipe out spam (including legit MLM mail) because it sucks up server, router and bandwidth costing them money. Don’t tell your aunt Matilda that your are going to “loose weight!” Poof your email just got wiped. Don’t tell her you are going on a “free MLM cruise!”

Innocently saying “call toll free” can bring the hammer down on your business email. And whatever you do don’t tell your customer that “satisfaction is guaranteed!”

MLM & GENERAL SPAM TRIGGERS

You need to have a list of "spam triggers" to refer to when you write your email. We have researched out some of the common ones for you below. Here are some tips:

1. Stay away from trigger words and phrases that make your message disappear. Don’t use opt-out phrases ("to be removed"... etc.). Its terrible but, the clear opt-out instructions of legitimate businesses are the exact words triggering Spam Filters.
2. Keep your email short. When you email say, "Your newest information is available to read by following this link (the words “clicking here” trigger some filters).
3. Be careful in your mailings about specific words, phrases, and opt-out notices. Don't mention free gifts, special offers, 1-800 numbers, toll free, and others below. Use an unusual unsubscribe statement like, “if never want to hear from us again. Don’t use Bizopp, weight loss, or MLM these words are on the list.. Of course the absolute killer is, “This is not a spam email”.


Header and Subject Line Filter Terms 
Extra space in a header/ subject line will get you killed as will slashes, hyphens and other tricks. Here are some common header words that will POOF your email. DEATH = $$$, 100% free, MLM Business, MLM Opportunity, MLM Freedom, MLM Fortune, ad, Earn $, earn extra cash, explode your business, double your income, eliminate debt, extra income, f r e e, fast cash, financial freedom, financially independent, free gift, free info, free membership, free offer, home based, homebased business, income from home, incredible deal, information you requested, MLM, make $, make money, opportunity, weight loss, save $.  HERE ARE GOOD DEMO'S CLICK HERE: DEMO HEADLINES & OTHER INFO

How MLM Professionals Get Vital Email - ALSO CRITICAL!


You have paid $300 for screened hot online leads. You get 20 excited replies! A lady you talked to last week.... She emails you that she decided to sign up with your opportunity and bring her downline of 129 distributors with her. Great!

Except that you never GET HER EMAIL!     


Spam filters grabbing inbound mail can hurt your MLM business TOO - very  badly if your Internet Service Provider (ISP) filters your email. ISPs like AOL (bad), earthlink, comcast (the very worst - run they have be sued by their own users), yahoo, hotmail and other providers can suck the life out of your business by killing response to YOUR marketing Email. The best is Gmail by Google (still better to have your own email). Those leads  you worked so hard for can disappear into spam filter hell. It can also happen if you sign up for a spam filter service of your own that doesn’t let you view your own filtered mail!

How to avoid spam filters from wrecking your business:

1. Get your own website making sure that your website host doesn’t filter email. In addition this makes you look more professional than using yahoo, hotmail and others. Set up your Email address with that account.

2. Use Mailwasher (free version) to screen email. It is easy to read and pick out spam and even a bigger thing is it "hard bounces" what you mark as spam. Spammers take you off their list because it makes it look like you are a "bad" address. Over time you will get less spam since you are listed as a "gone" account. You can gradually put your own words (filters) into mailwasher as you want. YOU HAVE 100% control. I use the paid version of mailwasher and love it. My secretary scans it before I get to work!  Go to http://www.mailwasher.net

3. To prevent “spambot email harvesters” from grabbing your name off your website you can spell it out like…….. Rod at wonderful.com. However for business purposes it is better to have a live link and fight them down with mailwasher.net. Hot link http://www.mailwasher.net

MLM CLASSROOM 2 - Successful E-Mail Marketing

1. What is E-mail (Email or email)? Electronic Mail is the sending and receiving of mail from one computer to another in its broadest definition. Normally we think of it as one company or person sending information to another company or person using the Internet. Our focus in this University lesson is to give you the background and tools to successfully market on the Internet using E-mail or Email. It is by far the most successful means of communication and marketing on the Internet.

2. How to get your Email out to customers and friends! Today with the large volume of Email on the Internet we have to be very professional to get results from our email efforts. Spam is angering everybody and one single complaint can get you shut down! Spam filters can kill your email. You not only have to write good ad copy for an ad but you also have to keep from using words that make your email go “poof” and disappear! Naturally words like Viagra or sex or free are good places to start. Don’t use them in the Header (headline area). Here are some other tips for writing email adcopy SO SPAM FILTERS DON’T KILL THE MESSAGE:

a.  You have 4 points to start with in the email message.
b. The word free is minus 1 point.
c. Home business opportunity is minus 3 points
d. Of course then “Free Home Business Opportunity” goes “poof” and disappears!
e. Other words that hurt are (there are about 200) - chat, join, make money, mlm opportunity, limited time, diet, money, credit card, click, click here, $, remove (because many spammers do a “remove”), and some filters even hate the words subscribing and unsubscribing .
f. A popular way to get around filters for a little bit is to use a Jpeg or Gif file, but filters are penalizing for html code “Href” and “img” used to put them there.
g. Big HTML letters are bad news! Some filters whack away at "ff0000" as good indicator of spam. In fact, "ff0000" (html for bright red) turns out to be as good an indicator of spam as any porno term. 
h. Free email addresses are used heavily by Spammers, so you'll want to test their use. They are marked as suspect by some filters.



3.Test, Test and More Tests
What is the cheapest way to see if your email will carry your important message and still get through the Spam filters? Test! Brightmail is the largest spamfilter company in the U.S. Sign up with a “HotMail” account and send your email messages to yourself as a first test (instructions for signing up at Hotmail are listed in Free - Dump Accounts section. If you are not on AOL find a friend that is and send your test mail to them.


4. Writing the email - Text has to be right:
Keep format simple, and clean. Do not "play" with dollar signs, fancy characters. You need to do a “hard return” after each line. Do not exceed 58-64 characters per line (ideal is 62); word-wrap works differently with each ISP. Strike the "Return Key" twice after each paragraph. Keep your paragraphs short and concise. Keep your paragraphs short and concise. This eliminates zig-zag unfilled horizontal lines that appear with only one or two words on a next line, followed by other irregularly formatted paragraphs. You have to look professional

Below are shareware utility programs that place hard-returns wherever you set the line length (62 characters - letters). If you don't the people can't see all of what you wrote = wasted email!

Software to write text emails which will get more delivered:

a. Free is best - right?  Windows or Mac MicroSoft Office has text pad hidden in "accessories." BE sure you turn off text wrap in MS text pad.  You can use MS Word itself but save as a .txt file and check your 62 letter letter count to the right margin.

b) TextPad Free Trial commercial version. Counts letters in line
http://www.textpad.com

Remember (pounding on this) maximum line length needs to be 62. If you are constantly making changes in your E-Mails before you send them, just type the whole e-mail, make your final edits, then go through and put your hard returns in when you're finished. This is the reason many people often do their E-Mails in a word processor; to count the characters in the status bar as they are typing.

5. E-Mail Tone:
Keep the tone of your E-Mail enthusiastic, friendly, simple and direct. Write with kindness; the way you would a friend. Use smiley faces and happy tones. Why? Email comes across as grim and ugly without them and causes many problems.

6. Emoticons:
Do use Emoticons so your recipient can tell when you're joking, or not upset. Or, use <G>, *grin*, or LOL (Laughing Out Loud) as appropriate. Just don't over-do!! One or two in a business message should be the maximum. Once again this is a new trend to be tested in email marketing.

Examples: :O) = Smiling Face  ;O) = Winking Face


7. CAPS (Yelling):
DON'T YELL. TYPING IN ALL CAPS IS CONSIDERED YELLING. SPAM FILTERS KILL TOO
Besides being impolite, because many of the “Nigerian” scam letters used all caps, often this causes a spam filter to take out your email.

8. Excellence:
Proofread and polish, then read again one-more-time. Make sure your communication is "clear", and the information requested has been presented more than adequately, and certainly not least, customer benefits have been documented accordingly. Create the "professional e-mail" habit! With practice this gets easier.

9. Willingness To Assist: When responding to E-Mail always try to be helpful without expecting anything in return. It won't take long before others will want to do business with you. You'll have developed their trust and respect. In fact, they will tell others about you too!!

10. Subject: Make your SUBJECT header count. It needs to be sharp, active, and benefit-laden. Busy people are quick to use their delete key. The SUBJECT field has the same power as an advertising "headline". Write a variety of "Subject" lines, pick one, and then polish it some more. Don't use cutesy or misleading headers.


11. Replying To An E-Mail:
EASY! You click "reply", write your reply, send it, go play. Whatever works for you and the recipient. Do, “quote” the “text” you are responding to. It will assist the receiver to discern more easily what your comments are related to. For wrapping “quotes” in a manner that sets them apart (" >" ) seems to be a "standard" now 

12. Business E-Mail:
Start with your business objective, define a compelling offer, and deliver a response-driven, relevant message. Remember the spam filters are always watching.

Examples: Thumbs Down

- "How To Make BIG, BIG Money At Home!!"

- "$90,000 In 90 Days!!!!!"

“Home business makes you $1000’s

MLM CLASSROOM 3 - E-Mail Leads & Organization Skills

Once you begin to market online if you're not organized, it could turn into a big nightmare. You must learn how to organize your incoming E-mail. You'll want to know who has contacted you, how they found you, and store them so they are easily accessible.


Auto Filing:
Some online services offer unique facilities, which enable you to predefine characteristics to be automatically filed into certain folders that you can setup.

For example, let's say you have a classified ad posted in several places that instructs viewers to click on a link that says:
mailto:webpilot@freeautobot?subject=PensbyBob (Not active)

When someone sends an E-Mail to the above, you will get an E-Mail with the subject line of "Pens by Bob." If you have your E-Mail client configured right, all E-Mail with that subject line will go directly into one folder without any interaction on your part!

You can also have a different E-Mail address for more than one business offering you may be promoting. Your E-Mail client can automatically sort the incoming mail by the unique E-Mail address for each.

Outlook Express:
Select: Tools
Select: Inbox Assistant
Select: Add

Example:
Click (Right): 
Select: Inbox at the left of your screen where all the folders are lined up.
Select: New Folder, 
You can create your new folders as you set up the filter instead of having to create them before you start the process. You cannot do this with NetScape (See below)
Type: WebPilot Training Forum,
Click: OK

Incoming Mail: (Bottom of Screen)
Click: Move To
Click: Folder
Click: Inbox Folder
Click: WebPilot Training Forum
Click: OK

This will automatically file every MLM E-Mail that comes in for that address.
Repeat these steps for each E-Mail account you have. There are many uses for this feature. Setup as many folders as you feel you need. Drag and drop your existing e-mails into their appropriate folder.

Netscape Messenger:
Select: Edit
Select: Message Filters
Select: New
Type: Filter Name
Unless you are setting up multiple commands for this filter, just use "Match Any of the Following".
Setup: Filtering Criteria (Drop Down Menu), 
Select: Move To Folder
Click: More To Add as required.

AOL:
The most obvious filter they have is you can have up to seven (7) screen names per account and you can switch back and forth while still signed on line. Starting with the 6.0 release you can add folders as you go along, and easily assign E-Mail to the folder of choice when you click at the bottom of your E-Mail "Save To Filing Cabinet". Your menu of folders is made available at this time and you just click the appropriate folder.

MLM CLASSROOM 4 - Signature Files (Sig file) - Important!

These are very important 3-6 lines following your name in your e-mail at the very end (Closing). It's here you tell the world who you are and what you're doing, and the benefit to your target market. It is a universally accepted form of letting everyone know what you market online and where your site is. A Signature file (Sig file) plays an integral role of your message, the information a person needs to reach you if the "Reply To:" function fails for some reason, or if the "From:" address is not included. The mail handler just looks for the file by name, and attaches it to your out-going E-mail messages as an option.

Use it on all of your outgoing E-mail, posting questions or answering someone's question in a discussion group / forum. Include your website URL and/or E-Mail address. Your E-Mail address is particularly important if you're posting to mailing lists or newsgroups. Use two Enter Key strokes after your name, then enter your "Sig file" information on the next horizontal line. You may want to separate with equal ("=") signs to create a semblance of a divider. Test your links, and proofread.

<<ACU Side Bar>> Always make sure you know the rules of a given mailing list or newsgroup before including your Sig file.]

MLM CLASSROOM 5 - Email Discussion List Resources

First a good way to build your clean email list is through Social sites such as MySpace, FaceBook, and some of the other 120 or so social websites.  Here is a warning they can become so time consuming that people get so tied up that they forget about marketing!  Is that enough said.  Take the attitude that you love the introductions but don't get buried in "playing."  Our object is to get an Email and permission to talk to them on the telephone!

Tip: Want to meet new prospects and spread the word? A resource people forget about today is email discussion lists. MAKE SURE that you have your signature file on every email you sent to the list. You will be surprised at how many people will click on your links to your website. Join an Email discussion list. What are your interests? Art, antiques, boating, cars, computers, cooking, crafts, boats, hiking, jogging, law, motorcycles, parenting, pets, photography, quilting, skiing, sports, etc.  Always offer a premium such as one of our free Rod Cook  ebooks on your website to get a real email address.

See: ACU Boards, Discussion Groups & Forum Information

Join as many lists as you can reasonably maintain a presence. Remember, the more you join, the more potential exposure you will have for your signature tag. For best results you will need to have something to say almost everyday in as many of them as you can comfortably do.

Ground Rules:
1. Be respectful and write intelligently.

2. Be of assistance to others when you have the knowledge, and experience. You're objective is to get viewer's to read to the end of your post including your signature line as well.

3. Use http:// in your URL's

4. Do not use more than 62 characters per line.

5. Send yourself a few messages to make sure your signature tag looks the way you want it to!!

Your results from this avenue of online marketing will largely depend on.
a) How big the list is, and 
b) How good your 'Sig' tag is!

It's a numbers game. The more posts you have out there the more people will be led to your site and the more money you will make. Do it fast and move quickly just like on the Social Networking sites above

Discussion lists are where much of your action will come from. Some of these lists have 1000's of readers who talk about everything from making money to building web sites. Look for an area that may have a special interest like dogs, cats, or gardnering.

MLM CLASSROOM 6 - E-Mail Hyper Links / HTML  

New Coaching update 2009 there is a trend for Spam Filters to kill your email if you don't have some text after your html link in the email.  So add a line like "I hope you appreciate this message have a very great day! 

You don’t need to know anything about HTML anymore; or Web programming language, to use its power in your E-Mail. To allow the most flexibility, E-Mail programs use the same general-purpose Internet tool as Web pages to liven up mere text: Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). HTML lets you add formatting such as colors, different font sizes, centering, indentations, pictures, and even hyperlinks. Almost 90% of people on the Internet can now receive HTML email with graphics in it. Remember that RED letters (2009 update) can get you in trouble with the spam filters

The World Wide Web turns into more of a multimedia party each day. It is so full of graphics, sounds, and streaming videos however, a majority of E-Mail sent still looks stodgy. Surely a happy medium must exist. In fact, most E-Mail programs (or clients) available today have the power to energize E-mail. The features aren’t enough to compete with the animation-obsessed Web, but they’re enough to keep things interesting. Annoyed users look for ways to tone things down. 


When you put the subject in your hyper link, you improve responses. Very few people want to take the time to type in a subject. This also assists you tracking your ads, and E-Mail sorting.

a.) Type: http://
http:// before the "www." will also generate a hyperlink making it easier for your recipients to go to your website... results in more hits.  A sample would look like MLM WatchDog   http://www.mlmwatchdog.com  Notice that the MLM Watchdog is hyperlinked too besides the web address!

b.) Test Your E-Mail
Send a test E-Mail to yourself. Make sure all links are typed correctly and working.

Send Later: Wise people at Auto responder E-mail software companies have included a "Send Later" option on most, if not all, E-Mail programs. It's a good option. 

We suggest you write your “marketing” e-letter save it in “Send Later”, walk away then come back and edit again. Save again in “Save Later”. Do a test run on some of your supportive friends / associates. When you’re satisfied. SEND!

Also, should the occasion arise when you get ready to send a really nasty letter, pull out your favorite pen, let ‘er rip on paper, stuff it in an envelope, slap on a stamp, and walk to a mailbox at least two blocks away.  When you get to the mail box? Tear up the letter!

Create one or more MLM Junk / Dump E-Mail accounts. This is a necessary step when it comes to setting up your new business online, and needs to be done BEFORE you begin working the Internet/Web!! In fact, you'll want to setup more than one "Dump Account" if you plan on placing multiple ads. It can assist with tracking response to more than one ad "copy", or response from a particular location. 

Example:
1. Open a YAHOO E-Mail account (YOU@yahoo.com)
2. Go to Yahoo Classifieds
3. Fill out the Yahoo Ad form. (Name, Address, Yahoo E-Mail Address) and the ad to be submitted.

A confirmation E-Mail will be in your Yahoo E-Mail box thanking you for your posting. They now have your E-Mail address to send you future 'junk mail", and so does EVERYONE else!!

Setting up a "Dump E-Mail Account" means your regular E-Mail address will not be flooded with other advertiser's E-Mail and confirmations from others on the WWW (World Wide Web) that you have interacted with in some manner. See Classroom 10 below for EASY (if you are not handy at setting up email accounts) FREE email accounts to use for "Dump" or "Junk" Email

MLM CLASSROOM 8 - E-Mail Forwarding Services

Forwarding in an easy and fast way is one of E-Mail 's best features. E-Mail has brought us many ways that make communicating easier. The ability to forward (just about) everything in a fast and easy way is one of the most used ways. Forwarding an E-Mail message means to send it on to other recipients. You can add your own comments and you can forward a message to many people at once. 

To forward an E-Mail message, you will usually click the "forward" button or use an equivalent keyboard shortcut. This depends on the E-Mail software you use. The subject of a forwarded message can be the original message's subject, preceded by "Fwd: ", but it can also be something (completely) different. 

A forwarded message should probably begin with your introduction to whatever comes forwarded. You can also add your comments to the forwarded here (although these can also go elsewhere, we'll come back to later). 

Find out how to do it right, how to format a forward, how to forward forwards and more. 

The following are FREE E-Mail forwarding services. They automatically forward E-Mail from your new address to an existing E-Mail address.

MLM CLASSROOM 11 - Bulk E-Mail - Hard To Do Now!

NO SPAM! YOU WILL BE TRACKED DOWN LIKE A DOG AND YOUR ISP LOST AND YOUR COMPANY DAMAGED. 

OPT-IN PERMISSION EMAIL (MEANING YOU HAVE PERMISSION TO SEND EMAIL) IS THE ONLY VIABLE MEANS ON THE INTERNET!

Can your business or organization send out 1,000’s of e-mails in one hour-per account...and more if needed? Utilizing some of the software / or services available today you can, but with great risk. You can do it yourself-with just "one touch" on your keyboard, or you can employ the services of a provider. Providers that will sent out email for you using your list are few and far between now because of spam issues! The name list you use must be absolutely all opt-in addresses purchased from a reliable source.

Remember that this section is only in here to show how to communicate with your downline and other warm contacts that you already know. Why? The hate about spam is high today and so many vigilante anti-spammers out there that if you do not send to a known list that knows you the following will likely occur:
1.You will be shut down by the ISP you send mail through
2.You will be put on a “blacklist” and not able to get another ISP
3.Your website or your company’s website will be shut down
4.You will be fined by your company for spamming and causing them trouble.
5.If the FTC doesn’t like the content of your emails they will really shut you down and send you to “club fed” with guards to make sure you are not bothered. 

Using the current software available today you can now merge data fields as well as automatically update address lists, expirations, and "sleepers." You can also: 

  • Segment targeted mailings - for people you have contact with

  • Customize welcome messages 

  • Include file attachments 

  • Conduct discreet e-mailbox discussion groups 

  • Maintain security of access 

You design and input your own e-mail campaign, customize and merge the content, and manipulate your own list databases. If you don't have the staff or the resources to do it, external online services can handle the entire process for you. They provide the technical muscle to get your messages out there, and usually guarantee expedient delivery. Warning! One of the biggest scams on the Internet is selling bulk email names! They will guarantee they are double opt-in and perfectly safe. Fat chance! You end up being hunted down like a dog and kicked in the pocket book!

MLM CLASSROOM 13 - E-Mail Glossary of Terms & Facts 

Bulk E-Mail ~ Targeted or mass E-Mail usually addressed to an end user of the Internet. Today's sophisticated software enables searching out E-Mail addresses of end users that fit specific demographics that you establish as criteria to send your Bulk E-Mail to. DO NOT SPAM YOUR COMPANY WILL TERMINATE YOU! Those people who sell you 10 millions names and a blaster are killing you. It is a scam! You will be tracked down and beat like a dog. 

Direct E-Mail ~ This is a mild form of "Direct" E-Mail like the "E-zine" (newsletter) advertising for the purpose of bringing in qualified leads. The people mailed are those that have "requested" commercial E-Mail. 

Email Address ~ Also called the Domain Address, or the User Name, it allows the transmission of messages from one computer to another. Each Email is a UNIQUE address. There should not be another one like it. All email can be tracked to its source.

E-Mail Link ~ In reference to marketing is normally one that is setup with an auto-responder, for subscribing to a newsletter, or additional information. Affiliates use these to place links in E-Mail to a Distributors/Company site that will direct users to specific products / services.

Opt - In Email ~ An email list that the person signs into giving the sender permission to send them email. Currently the best way of sending advertising on the web. See Permission E-Mail below.

Permission E-Mail ~ The most effective advertising medium available today. The old direct marketing approach of reaching a mass audience with the brute force of mass production and mass mailings is no longer effective. The new direct marketing approach is about customization and personalization, about trust and responsibility, and protecting privacy. It is about empowering the consumer. 

Literally billions of E-Mail messages are sent each day -- billions! 

It is widely accepted that e-mail is the most popular Internet application. Research done by The Yankee Group  found that there are 663 million e-mailboxes in the world, and more than 300 million of them are managed by ISPs. The Institute for the Future has found that the average white-collar worker sends and receives an average of 30 e-mails per day. With SPAM that rate has gone up to - Irritating!

According to eMarketer, 81 million Americans use e-mail at least occasionally. The average American sends or receives 26.4 e-mail messages a day. The total number of messages sent by US Internet users is 2.1 billion, eMarketer reports. That means the remaining 7.3 billion messages are commercial e-mail messages, and eMarketer estimates 96 percent of these are Spam. Thanks to commercial messages, the average US e-mailer receives twice as many e-mails as he or she sends. Along these same lines, research done last year by the Pew Research Center  found that 88 percent of Internet users are frustrated by unwanted junk email.

“Newbies” take their initial online plunge for a variety of reasons. Access to great research materials, games, sports, and news often are cited as common motivators. What is the number one reason that newbies are ready, willing, and able to tackle cyberspace? E-Mail ! The ability to send and receive E-Mail is hands-down the most appreciated and utilized component of the Internet. 

E-mail is revolutionizing the way we communicate today. For volume, speed, reliability, and cost, e-mail has become the obvious choice for one-on-one, customized marketing and customer service. So, what we are going to cover here in relation to E-Mail are habits you will need to develop if you're ever to "master" online E-Mail marketing. In other words… “BEYOND E-Mail BASICS”.

We get literally thousands of E-Mail a month from friends, family, and business associates. AND... most of the E-Mail received reflects the thousands of missed opportunities to "sell" simply because they do not go "Beyond E-Mail Basics!!

First you must spell and punctuate correctly. Why? You're establishing a relationship online and it's part of the "trust" equation. Take note of your own impressions / perceptions when you receive an E-Mail fraught with poor spelling and punctuation.

Comments, corrections, and additions are all welcomed. Please send an email to: University at mlmconsultant.com Once again type that in your email sender using the @ - This is done so the email scavenger rippers don't vacuum up this email address and fill the University box with spam. That is a cute trick for you to use on your website!!
