    Please read your emails before you send them out. I put up one ad and have gotten over 30 spam emails and most are terrible. I have no idea how some of you make any money at all. 3 people actually told me to click on a link in the email and forgot to include it but this one got me. Read the actual unedited ad below. Really it's even the actual link. Just think of how much time this person is wasting sending this email.


    Hello,

    I saw your ad on [Insert Ad Here] under [insert category] and I wanted to help you out. Please go to http:// afflink.com and I promise this is not a scam or fish. Really. Thanks for your time,

    Insert Name here
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 5

    haha lately I've been getting a lot from obvious harversters like "hey i have a few more questions.. do you have a phone where I can call you?" or.. " do you also work on freelance websites?" or.. "do you have a website? or where do I order?" the obvious tell is based on the amount of ads I have out there, they come in identical like 100 times. but pretty sneaky haha everybody;s putting up their own little fight... gotta feed em kids I guess...

    I love it when you see stuff like this POSTED on CL. Nothing says flag this ad like: {TITLE} as the title of an ad. This is great though, I have had many "Professional" marketers send me stuff like that to my email after opting in to spy on what they are doing.

    Thanks for the chuckle.

    I still get some of that from the "Big Fish" marketers. I love the Thanks <firstname> check out our latest greatest new thing to make you craploads of money.

    Even the million dollar affiliates suck on some days, or at least their little peon hirelings do.

    This reminds me of that scene in Boiler Room when the newspaper salesman calls up Giovanni Ribisi's character.
