    As the thread title suggests, this is a post about a little trick i found out a while back, which i discovered again just now, while i was wiping an old HDD of mine and found the unedited version of the picture below.


    As you can see, it is the upper body of a naked girl, nothing out of ordinary at least for most of us i hope and this is not why i saved it, but because she is holding a(n obviously fake) fansign with my email address on it: "I Love emailaddy", not the whole address just the part before the @ and in the right bottom corner there's the sender's website watermarked. I edited the pic, it looked better of course, especially without that annoying black box.

    I'm not a mailing expert, all i know that if you post a picture along with the message, it's harder to inbox. Now if you can manage to inbox a mail with an image in it, i can imagine this little personalized picture can work wonders to the click-through rate and maybe to the conversion rate too. Telling the truth, i was much more gullible back then, i opened the mail and visited the watermarked site. If i can remember well, the pic wasn't clickable and the mail didn't contain any links, i still visited the site.

    Plenty of people use their real name or nickname in their email addresses, so it can work well. But if you know the first name of the recipients, it's even better.
    To make this work, you would need the first part of the email addresses before the @ or the first names of the recipients, pics of girls holding a white paper in front of them which can be easily edited, a font type which looks like hand writing (use this to compose the whole message, not the times new roman i used lol) and use a PS batch file to put the personalized fansigns onto the pics.

    Times are changing, you may want to be more up to date, so instead of a website, you can watermark a snapchat or kik username onto the pic or even put it next to the message on the paper and use those messaging apps as an interactive landing page, so it will look even more legit. It'd be advised to have some kind of automation for the apps, so you don't have to watch dick pics all day long.

    Now, all you need is a good mailing list, the knowledge how to inbox and i can already hear you laughing your way to the bank :)

    Hope it gave you some ideas!
    • Thanks Thanks x 3

    Ha! Nice. It always pays to get up-close and personal. As soon as people think it is ONLY for them, chance % of success increases.

    Yeah, I used something similar a while back, can't think of the name but there are tons of services. I copied Frank Kern's one. Picture of an envelope (or in my case, blank check) with the subject line: This Envelope/Checks got your name on it, body was the image with their first name. Crazy CTR.

    Funny thing was that it generated a bunch of complaints and unsubs tho.
