I have had family over to visit me and Elena in Madrid recently, we had a great time, but clearly the gods of marketing and business wanted to bring me back to reality with a bang…
This morning I received an email from a lady who subscribed to my email updates on April 9th, she then received two emails from me as a welcome, and she freaked out and tried to call the cops.
Here is email one, in response to whether she would like to get updates from the other blogs I write for:
I’m interested if it doesn’t cost me a penny! About your blog posts and articles.
but if it costs me even a penny, i wont be taken. also, how do you know my name?
Email me back w/ an answer please. i would like to know.
Have a nice day,
p.s. if it doesn’t cost me anything, i’m interested in the blog post and the articles.
Ok, so nothing dramatically wrong with this one, clearly it seems she has a penny that she just doesn’t want to let go of, but there is nothing wrong with that. But then she also asks “how i know her name?”. The same name that she put in my opt-in box only a few days ago.
Anyway, a few minutes later I get another email, this time more aggressive:
WHO ARE YOU??????? Why do you want to know were i live, and stuff?
please give me an honest answer or i’m calling the cops!!!!
+, how do you know my name? honest answer, or the cops are on you!
All in all, this is reason 146 of why I love the Internet – no matter how much information is out there, no matter how many thousands of times we see something, there will always be people who are doing it for the first time.
Don’t worry (NAME), my updates are free, thanks for the email, and remember: there is no expert on the planet that wasn’t a newbie at some point.
