There are times when we all need some clarification on what spam really is. We all get it but seldom do we hear it defined. Spam is very important to success of entrepreneur in a few important ways. Let's define and look at it more carefully, taking into account old saying "there is a sucker born every minute".
What is spam?
Spam is garbage email that we all get daily from either get rich quick sites or porn sites. You will rarely get spam under any other subject. You know you are in receipt of a spam email if you get information that you didn't specifically request. You know you are a sucker (the one quoted above) if you decide to buy from a spammer.

The hidden secret about spam that could save you thousands of dollars.
We all need to treat spam as a news service. What do I mean by this you ask? I get about 20 spam messages a day on average and consider it a free news service of businesses to stay away from. In other words, when you get a spam message be sure to "insert" a subject at top of message that says "Another business that is a scam or is going bankrupt". The first part of subject is very clear and covers most of spam you will get. The other half is very important.
Many companies on net right now are going bankrupt, in fact this number is in tens of thousands. You can bet 100% that if you get a message from a company that is trying to sell you something that seems legitimate they are trying to keep from going out of business. You can purchase their wares but odds are they will use your money to pay their creditors or simply pocket it without sending you a thing.
