I received an email from Intellishop with information about the CEO's friend who is coming out with a book, asking me to sign up to be notified when the book comes out. Intellishop is offering incentive in the form of a gift card giveaway and free signed books.
To me, this is so disrespectful of a business relationship and is totally out of line. I don't want your Ibotta link, I don't want to buy from Herbalife, I don't need you to peddle me diet teas or self-help books, etc.
MSC, why do you feel it is acceptable to exploit the fact that I gave you my email to be notified about CONTRACT OFFERS?
Shoppers, what are your thoughts? Agree, disagree? Love marketing emails?
edited for spelling error.
To me, the point of disturbance here is that my email was used for SOMETHING OTHER than that for which I signed up! That CEO certainly does not have my permission for me to be spammed with marketing offers!@KA047 wrote:
Surprised by the reaction to this. I didn't have a problem with the email. It'd be different if it was a daily occurrence or done frequently, but its not something that has been done often. Read and delete. No big deal.
I got if five times same email. It is well past spam at that point.
Inappropriate post. Personal attack removed.
I agree that it was unprofessional. The IC contact list should not be used to solicit or promote products. I immediately deleted it.
