SUBJECT: Squeeze pages collecting email addresses
GURU: Mark Joyner
If you are trying to get into Internet marketing you have heard a thousand times that you need a mailing list. Who out there can disagree with that? Here is my feelings about constantly being asked for my email address.
Don’t get me wrong, I do give my email address out for newsletters if I think they will benefit me in some way with information I need or want. There are, however, Internet marketers who collect emails just to add to their monstrous email lists. I get emails from this one very well known Internet marketer all the time who puts a link in the email to a page where he is going to reveal something really useful but instead it always goes to a squeeze page that asks for your email.
The annoying thing is that he already has my email! I wonder why he wants it again. Perhaps it gets put on a specific list where he will send me more stuff for sale having to do with that subject.The last thing I want is more mail from him trying to sell me something else.
Is this a good marketing technique? I think NOT because it is VERY ANNOYING, especially when it happens all the time from this one person. Literally every email I get from him had some kind of catch or squeeze page link in it. AAAAHHHHHH!
In a minute I will tell you who this person is, but I want you to know that I tried communicating to him about this annoying technique and I did not get an answer. The email was not returned, so I am assuming it just went to an email box that never gets looked at. I got no response from him.
Now I’m going to be direct and honest here. I have nothing against the guy personally, but I just don’t like his methods. There is nothing wrong with his products I just don’t like his methods. His name is Mark Joyner. Here is a sample of what I am talking about, (BELOW.)
Note: I have purchased stuff from him in the past and I am a member of his simpleology101 which is a good course. It just seems every time I turn around he has something else I should buy. He is relentless. Its just annoying. He is the only Internet marketer I know that is so relentless. Maybe he does not effect other people that way, but for me, its really annoying.
The reason I posted this is because he does not communicate with me about this. His choice.
Here is the email:

Is there a book, so powerful, that reading it will
turn your mind around? My dear friend, the billion
dollar direct marketing phenomenon Ted Nicholas,
He says of this book:
“When you feel down, as is part of the human
condition, just pick up this book and you?ll be
moved beyond your present condition.”
I haven’t read it yet, but we’ve uploaded it for
you to read:
I tell you what … if you promise to read it, so
Let me know what you thought of it. All I can say
is, if Ted says that, it has to be good. He’s never
once steered me wrong. In fact, he’s been one of
the most profoundly positive influences on my life.
