I don’t care for it. Perhaps you have it, and you love it, but I don’t like it.
Spam is a funny thing, and it’s hard to fix. But I realized back when I worked for an eCommerce company that we pretty much had to let all e-mail through, or we risked missing an e-mail from a customer or prospect. Saying that their e-mail got trapped in the spam folder wasn’t a good excuse (didn’t give customers the warm fuzzies).
Even though getting an e-mail to a SpamArrest client is pretty simple, I just have to get their confirmation e-mail and then click a link, I still find it a pain. Can you imagine if every e-mail you sent required extra steps? Bleh!
But here’s the point, and the only reason I’m writing about this here: what if that hiring manager doesn’t like SpamArrest? What if that important network contact doesn’t like SpamArrest? I think if I were deep in a job search again I’d probably discontinue my account until I landed the job.
I’m sure this is controversial, since no one likes spam and these guys have a decent tech solution. But remember the person on the other end of your e-mail that may be “too busy” to take that extra step. They are, in essence, your customer… don’t drive them away 😉
