    Another Sign it's Q4
    Getting tons of email from merchants I haven't heard from in decades telling me how special I am...

    and reminding me that

    1. Q4 is typically their best season

    2. Giving them better exposure would probably generate more sales

    Not directed at ABW merchants, we KNOW you have to try: If you converted well the previous 11 months, I've already upped your holiday exposure

    I got a clever one this morning, which I already deleted that went something like

    We just wanted to make sure you haven't forgotten us/yada yada yada/put us on your home page

    My response: If you'd show up occasionally on my SALES reports, you wouldn't be so easy to forget

    It's quite common to get emails from merchants. Just a case of sorting the wheat from the chaffe.

    So the email I have been preparing to send would be futile?

    I'm getting a lot of emails from Merchants this month, not even reading them now.

    Billy, maybe they are just now realizing what we have known all along, you are "special".

    I'm swamped with emails, too, but not just from merchants I work with, also from merchants I buy from.

    I just wish, to make our lives easier and ensure that your email is read, that you would put "SALE," "FREE SHIPPING PROMOTION," or "COUPON" in the subject of your email. And another thing, I don't have time to read a novella about the promotion, keep it short and sweet, just the pertinent information would be a big help.

    Please -- be succinct and be specific. I don't wanna hear your marketing jive! lol!

    I don't get these emails from deadbeat merchants any more since I became ruthless about the merchants who never made any sales - focus on what works.
