Recently looking for contracts and jobs here (a long, long story) I noticed the very heavy competition for my viewing eyes from job boards. To differentiate they all had the best email list or an RSS feed for my favourite harvester.
This process has given me a clear path into which sites I'd use again. Those sites are definitely not the ones I'm still trying to get rid of now. So why does this matter? Brand, recommendation, customer experience.
Too often online marketing is characterised by quantity rather than quality. There's a pervasive idea that quality is too hard but sheer volume will have the same effect.
Let me give you a shining example of what I mean. I was recently browsing a forum when I found, without a doubt, the dumbest attempt at marketing I've seen in a while.
If people want to unsubscribe from emails, it should be made as easy as possible, as the alternative for many customers is using the report spam option, something which can have an adverse effect on sender reputations with ISPs.

The truth is that defeating spam doesn't require more technology but changes in human nature. Here are 10 common sense ways to avoid spam that are forgotten or overlooked far more often than we'd like to believe.
“Marc have you got a minute?” It always starts that way, I take my headphones out of my ears slowly to try and emphasise my disdain at being interrupted from whatever I am doing...
In a recent post I asked a question about behavioural email and segmentation that received a number of positive responses but which showed a breadth of approach across the market, from the pragmatic to the fully integrated.
But I was only left with one question that has nagged at me for a couple of weeks, so I thought I would give it an airing: if behavioural email and segmentation is the way the market is going, then is everyone who is building an ‘offline’ RFM (recency, freqency, monetary) database / segmentation tool to drive email wasting their time and money?
You may be focused on improving the conversion rate for your website, or simply wanting to ensure that your visitors can quickly get an idea of what you do and offer.
