Are you taking on new clients? No, but now you look like a spammer :(

Check out this email I get about, oh, once a day (edited to take out the person’s name who sent it):

The problem with this is that you look like a spammer when you send this.

I know, I know, you didn’t do it on purpose.

What can you do about it?

  • Be careful what networks you sign up for.  I know people how sign up for every new network that comes around, and I regularly get emails from them that I just delete.  Maybe even legitimate emails… but they send so much noise, I don’t even pay attention to emails from them.  You don’t want people to think of your emails like this, do you?
  • If you sign up for a new thing, don’t do anything that might send emails to your address book (including uploading your address book).

I think many people do this by mistake, but it makes email from you look like spam… and you don’t want that – be careful 🙂

  1. I’ve been getting these too. The funniest one was the one I got from someone I DO NOT like and doesn’t like me. No way I wanted any referrals from him. 😉

    The tricky part though, about these services is it can be devilishly hard sometimes to tell that you’re sending something out to all your contacts. Care is the word, I agree with you.

  2. I did this by mistake with this particular one in fact. I agree with Juli on this. I haven’t been real active with it and haven’t seen anything in a week or so.
