    Hi Jane,

    One quick question: How do you retain email subscribers when they join up only to receive the freebie on offer?

    I am sure you’ve faced this issue before. If someone is joining your list only to download the freebie and unsubscribing soon after, how can one build blog following?

    Looking forward to your answer.

    Yes I agree to the above comment. Unfortunately people mark marketing email as spam because people are so busy with their work that they want their emails to be clean when they check it.

    YouTube is a good way to market and also, a company forum and press releases are best for an effective marketing strategy.

There is no compulsion and thus, you will not be branded as a spammer.” Thanks.

    Yes I consent to the above remark. Shockingly individuals imprint advertising email as spam in light of the fact that individuals are so occupied with their work that they need their messages to be clean when they check it.
