A client recently contacted us complaining about the amount of spam he was getting, upon investigation, he was actually getting lots of marketing emails from legitimate web sites (play.com, gumtree.com etc.) but was finding them a nuisance. To reassure him, I sent a description of how we process email to combat spam and thought I’d share that with all our customers here.
It seems that everyone has heard of Twitter. Even my dad was asking me about twitter and he’s a technology dinosaur, in fact my Dad said yesterday, “If the internet comes anywhere near me, I’m going to hit it with my walking stick.” I understand it’s now the law to follow Stephen Fry on twitter and discuss the interesting facts and links he turns up. Twitter seems to be a good way of sharing information. However, our customers ask, “how can Twitter get us more customers? How can it help our business?”
Have you ever received an email like this?
I am Ryan the website manager for Acme Corp, we’re a great company. I was searching the web for valuable industry resources and came across your website. I think our customers would enjoy reading your site for new information and have added a link to you on our website.
It would be great if you would be able to add a link back to us. All you have to do is put the following code on your links page.
Thank you for your time
So why did this get my back up?
