Venusian Arts gets email happy

If you're new here, you will want to sign up for my newsletter to get FREE dating ebooks and mp3s along with exclusive seduction tips and videos. Thanks for visiting!

I signed up to be a member of the Venusian Arts forums last week.

I had to give them my email address in the process. Friday I started getting promotional emails from them which I don’t mind if they are once a week or less.

Well I got six promotional emails between last Friday and early Tuesday morning.

Seriously, that is fucking ridiculous. I do not care if they have a new program coming out this week or a “superconference” coming next month. Getting six emails in a little over four days is obviously too damn much.

What it made me do was unsubscribe to their mailing list. Rather than being able to send me one email per week until I die they had to push it and they got only six emails before I unsubscribed. I will end up not buying any products from their emails. Now was that truly an effective method of advertising on their part?

I think all people who are selling products need to take this example into consideration when promoting them via email. Just like with all things in life; moderation is key. Wait … sex and money are exceptions!

    Glad to see your site is back up and running!

    Yea, Venusian Arts’s Mike Long or whoever the hell is sending those emails is fucking getting on my nerves.. I really don’t need to know about evey bootcamp mystery is giving or every new video thats been posted..

    I wish mystery luck and all but in the past i used to like reading the msytery OAP emails becasue they always contained good info.. now these emails are just shameless plugs.

    Thanks Bobby Rio,

    It bugged the fuck out of me having the site not work those four days. I think it stressed me out more than it should have.

    You hit the nail on the head regarding their emails.

    sad truth is this probably is a better way to sell his products. I can ignore one email a week, but if I get six at the same time, I’m probably going click on one of them.

    I can ignore six just as well as I can ignore one. I easily ignore over a thousand spam messages a week without temptation to click on them.

    I clicked on the first one I got because it was from VA and I thought there may be something of value in it. If they sent one a week I would have still clicked on the first one but I potentially might have clicked on others weeks later because I wouldn’t have unsubscribed.

    I do agree with you though, it must be a more effective method of advertising for the majority of the people on their mailing list or else they wouldn’t be doing it that way. But in turn they lost me as a potential customer so I hope their juice was worth the squeeze.

    I get kind of tired of their constant “act now” approach, as if the pick up artist community is suddenly going to disappear if you don’t funnel a ton of cash at them for whatever reason . Yes, I am sure that Mystery, Matador and whoever else is teaching are great, but there are other useful people out there to learn from, such as the people that post on our blog, and just because you guys don’t have the opportunity to post as many advertisements as you want and spread the word on a big fucking scale like MM and VA doesn’t mean that you aren’t good.

    However, god bless Mystery for his work and what he has done for the community. Had it not been for he and Style, I wouldn’t be here able to do the things that I do with women, because those two guys pretty much revolutionized the industry, along with Ross Jeffries.

    I’m glad you posted something about this and I hope someone from their company sees it. They are seriously getting out of control. I think all of the publicity they’ve been getting lately is causing a panicked rush to hard sell their products.

    I sign up for all these pick-up newsletters because I like to stay on top of everything going on in the community but frankly I’m getting sick of the constant sales pitches. They’re all the same too, Mystery, Thundercat, Savoy, etc.

    Ughh, I think it’s time to do some mass unsubscribing…
