Feedback Wanted! What's Too Much or Too Little?

Post by JonOlson » Mon Nov 20, 2017 3:30 am

A question popped up in my mind today while poking around some Skype groups about the amount of emails you should be sending to your lists...

I have my opinions on it, but would love to know what you think?

As email marketers, what a good number of emails to send for;

a) a product launch

b) regular communication / updates

a) one daily for a while would be OK - especially if you have in your disclaimer, that when they signed up, they agreed to receive emails (I guess I am thinking of my program.) I think, for a list, daily for a few days

b) once a week to every couple of days sometimes

I actually have my first month in my autoresponder setup for one daily. 99% content and some offers. The 2nd month I reduce it to twice a week. On the second half of the 2nd month I reduce it to once a week.

I used to work for a guy that had me sending 3-5 emails a day.

Thing is... it worked.

Yeah, he got a lot of unsubscribes, and unfortunately we were kicked off many an autoresponder. But he made money.

I'd say 4-5 days for a launch, morning and night.

Regular stuff, I have my list set for every 3 days.

Then there's the "pay or puke" theory that I like a LOT.

Yeah I've done 3 a day for a launch but when we get behind something in JV Zoo it's a minimum of 2 a day for the 5 day launch.

Reason being, like you stated....It works.

After that, I like to email at least once or twice a week to keep us top of mind as much as possible.

I think the more we contact the BETTER!

So, I say email every day. Monday/Saturday. This is just what I focus on.

I don't want to be forgotten, and want to deliver maximum value.

Only testing will truly help you determine long-term.

I hope that helps Jon!

Several years ago I sent out some emails to my downline in a program I was in.

I sent out 3 or 4 emails over a period of 10 days.

Finally, I sent out an email, I stated.

I know you guys are reading my emails and I expect to hear back from you.

So, get off the couch, turn off the TV and click Reply and give me some Feedback.

It worked. I fired them up and I got feedback.
