    Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for your great tutorial on “how to correct a mistake” by adding true value to anyone who reads your message. Now, we know how to clear a list, something we might not know if you didn’t show us. That’s cool.

    As a former member of your Underground Training Lab and an active subscriber to your list – who just bought a product you recommended through your affiliate link – I was really upset about receiving that irritating Email message from you… you guess…

    But you realized so quickly what went wrong and responded so appropriate that this experience will certainly contribute to strengthening your reputation of being a master marketer. You demonstrated a good sense of what is good customer care.

    We all go through similar experiences at times in our private life or in our business. A mistake happened, we are responsible, what now? You gave us a good lesson on how this can be corrected. You did it well, Jeff!

    Hmmmm….gotta tell ya, I got this “being removed from my list” email and it had the exact opposite effect on me. I promptly open the email and went straight to the bottom and unsubscribed to save the sender the effort. Seemed more like a threat so I wished him bonvoyage…hehe….not the response you might have expected but true nonetheless.

      Cool, you either want to be on my list or you don’t. Your choice.

    Hey jeff
    I wondered what was happening.
    I cant wait to have this as a problem.
    I have to figure that a screwed up list beats no list any day 🙂
    Thx Rob

    Hey Jeff,

    Thank you so much for the unsubscribed tip. Man I had over 400 people that had stopped receiving my emails.

    I’m going to try the reactivation technique here shortly.

    Thanks again,

    Howdy Jeff

    It looks like your doing the twitter thing for your emails, meaning shorter and to the point.

    There are cheaper services then Aweber, do you use then out of habit or are they the best value for the money?

    Thanks, Tony

      best value for the money.

        That’s good to know. I was disappointed in GetResponse and am thinking of getting A Weber. Think I will.

    Great video Jeff, learned a lot for cutting down Aweber costs and at the same time improving my open & click through rates! 🙂

    Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for the awesome info. Question, have you ever tried icontact? Do you know if they offer the same or one has an advantage over the other?

    I’m new at this and growing my list but I wanted to know if there is any advantage to using one or the other. Thanks.

    • Jeff Johnson 06. Feb, 2010 at 2:33 pm #

      No, I’ve never used icontact so I really can’t say.

    I’ve already started cleaning my lists.. and I got even more tips from your tutorial. Thanks.

    Can you confirm – you cannot do a split test on a segment? Split tests can only be done on an entire database? If so, doesn’t that rather dampen the power of split testing – find out on a small segment what works, then use the better of the options on the whole?
    maybe I’ve misunderstood something – would appreciate the clarification

    • Jeff Johnson 06. Feb, 2010 at 10:15 pm #

      They don’t give you the option of choosing a saved segment or choosing a multiple list option inside a split test message like they do within a normal broadcast.

    Thanks Jeff I’m new to this but have relied on tutorials like yours, Frank Kern, Mike Koenigs and membership with Dan Kennedy (GKIC Diamond) to get me up to speed as fast as possible.

    I always listen then test. Why are people always asking if you know how to re-invent a cheaper wheel?
