    So I found a ton of companies in my niche who I was going to send emails to and ask for free stuff so I could post on my page. It would have taken ages to send an email to each individual company so I decided to mass send. I read that you can click the 'BCC' option in Outlook when sending so you don't look like spam. It worked for the first email I sent but I just sent another email to loads of other businesses using the 'CC' option, by mistake. Now I've gotten replies telling me to stop emailing them etc and remove them from my email list lmao .

    I guess I've just burnt a few bridges before I've already started :(

    I've lost a ton of money on IM for stupid reasons but never did I make it an excuse to stop.

    You live and you learn. Just keep hustling bro.

    i can understand you how you feel but don't worry really. you can change your identity on the internet easily just changing your website and email addresses and start again or wait for awhile then send them again like nothing happened : )

    Chalk it up to a lesson learned and keep going. If you quit every time you make a mistake, you'll never get anywhere in life.

    Thanks for the reassuring replies. I don't really want to change my name as it really fits in my niche.

    I sent them all out another email (this time using BCC) telling them I'm not a computer wiz and mistakenly added all my other contacts into it. I told them the email was just meant for them so hopefully the'll reply and still want a collaboration :D atm I've got a few things in the mail coming to my address. I recommend all you guys try emailing companies in your niche asking for stuff in return for a feature on your page cos it really works!

    You need to send 1 email to 1 company, no mass mailing in that way. They can easily see that you have sent the same message to others, so they won't care.

    Each message should be unique and remember that if you send a lot of messages with the same text each time, you will hit spam filter :)

    This has happened to everyone at some point, mate.

    It's basic really.

    Read up on MLM and find out how to do this properly.
