Sending unwanted email, even if you do so unintentionally, is still spamming. Here are a few common mistakes that can result in accidentally sending spam.
- You receive an unsolicited e-mail from Joe, and retaliate by adding Joe to your AWeber account: The e-mail that Joe then receives from you is spam.
Two wrongs don't make a right: just because someone spams you does not mean it is okay to spam them.
- You submit your AWeber email address to a Free For All link page along with your URL. The FFA page owner emails your AWeber address in order to confirm your submission.
He now has added himself to your AWeber list. The e-mail that he then receives from you via AWeber is spam.
- You subscribe to a mailing list with your AWeber email address.
This will add anyone who emails the mailing list to your AWeber list. Any email that the posters later receive from you via AWeber is spam.
- Subscribing to e-zines or newsletters with an AWeber e-mail address is spamming. This will add the e-zine's editors to the customer's AWeber leads list. Any e-mail the editors later receive from the customer via AWeber is spam.
Remember, your AWeber account must only be used to email people who are coming directly to you to request your specific information from you.
