There's another annoying trend that I want to call out. Every single day, I receive emails like this:
I'm sure others get them too. Now I'm sure Tatyana is a lovely lady who's just trying to do her job and struggling to find business for her company. But I haven't the slightest interest in what she's offering.
Now I used to respond to these, and just say "No thanks" or "No interest".
Then I started saying "No thanks. Please don't spam".
But now I get so many of these per day that I just don't have the time to be responding to them. (I'm glad I'm not in the remote web development business).
So what's changed?
Now what's changed, is they've started spamming me for not responding to their spam.
Really? So now I'm getting anywhere up to 50 or 60 percent more mail from these people, because I didn't respond to their previous mail.
And some aren't done then. They'll keep sending it over time. Some even start to get nasty about not getting a response.
There's probably some sales coaching course somewhere that tells them that this is a good idea. It's not.
Please don't do this!
