How not to spam.




I sent this spam to 10,000 of my closest friends. The subject line was something like:"No marriage waiver for me and it is going to take a bucket of Paxil" In retrospect maybe including Paxil in a subject line if I am trying to get people to open an email is not the greatest idea. Ya think?

Probably NOT a good idea...

The probability is hight that at least one in the 10,000 people you sent this to takes, or knows someone who takes, anti anxiety meds.

The shot is redeeming at least. Maybe you can license it to Paxil.

It's only a bad idea because it increases the probability of your email getting into their JUNK folder (Paxil being one of spam keywords)

catch 22, even if you leave the perfect correct title, they may still spam it or not open it. i had good 'clicks' results on several eblasts over the past half year, then one in may yielded me nearly no results at all. great image, well picked list that i had good results on before, but shetty results. oh well. next.
