5. Do not expose a large group of email addresses in your email header. There's a way to send to a group without exposing allrepparttar email addresses. Simply placerepparttar 109711 addresses inrepparttar 109712 Blind Carbon Copy (BCC) line of your email program.

6. Do not reply to exposed emails. It's tempting, I know--but resistrepparttar 109713 urge to email all those nice email addresses someone exposed in sending an email to you.

You don't have their permission, andrepparttar 109714 person sendingrepparttar 109715 email obviously didn't read this article!

7. Do not spread urban legends. No, I didn't wake up in my bathtub with ice all around me with one kidney gone and Bill Gates is not paying me $200 for forwarding an email.

I'm glad someone has a great imagination. I just wish they'd put it to better use!

8. Do not spread viruses. It's easier to do than you think.

Someone gave me a virus and fortunately it was a fairly harmless one. I sent an attachment to a friend and his antivirus program caught it. He let me know and I immediately got some antivirus software and got rid of it.

And he's still my friend! But make sure you're not spreading viruses through your email.

9. Do not spread hype. "Cough once and make a million dollars." Okay I made that one up, but I'm sure you seen others just as ridiculous.

Like Joe Friday, I want "justrepparttar 109716 facts."

10. Do not overdo it. I don't want to be worried to death by one person emailing me over and over again for no reason. Yes, sometimes repetition is good, but don't needlessly clog up email boxes withrepparttar 109717 same message over and over.

If it's moving a project or conversation forward, that's another matter. But even then, there may come a time when you need to switch to a chat or instant messaging format.

Or even use that ancient invention,repparttar 109718 telephone!

SPAM isrepparttar #1 Desperate Measure taken by Internet marketers.

SPAM is defined in Internet terms as:

Electronic junk mail or junk newsgroup postings. Some people define spam even more generally as any unsolicited e-mail. However, if a long-lost brother finds your e-mail address and sends you a message, this could hardly be called spam, even though it's unsolicited. Real spam is generally e-mail advertising for some product sent to a mailing list or newsgroup. See my article "Desperate" Marketers Take "Desperate Measures" at: http://www.jackofclarks.com/mlmtips.html

You don't have to use those tactics to succeed! You need to use email with care, only emailing those who have requested it. For example if you've got an advertisement and someone emails you aboutrepparttar 109710 details, then you have their permission to email them. You simply must establish `Trust and Credibility', with your prospects, clients and customers.

You can't expect people to respect you; let alone want to do business with you if you send them email they don't want. You want to contact people who are interested in your product, service or opportunity. You have to earn their `trust'! It's all about 'honesty and integrity'! You can succeed by establishing these principles in your marketing campaign.
