    So I wanted to try marketing on a forum and I decided I would do a small test to find out some information. Well, I sent out 200 PM's to members that had signed up to the forum in the past 24 hours. There were no restrictions to the amount of PM's I could send and all of them are now in my outbox. I sent all of the messages about 24 hours ago.

    Out of the 200 it says that NONE of them have been opened. Not even one, which makes me wonder is it something I did wrong or do sending PM's on forums really not work that well.

    It wasn't a sales pitch or anything, but how would they even know if they didn't open it. I'm just confused as to why that would happen so I would appreciate some input. I'm new to marketing on forums so maybe I'm missing something right in front of me, but anything will help.

    Thanks :D

    They all have read receipts, but that's the problem. None of them have been opened. Why would that be? Out of 200 forum PM's not one get's opened??

    Users must be inactive or figured it was a spam message. Try putting Re: before your message title. Put it all in lowercase. It converts well

    I sent all of them manually. I just don't understand how out of 200 not even one was opened. Is that right?

    Maybe it was marked as spam since you sent it to 200.
