Radhika Venkata (c).
People tend to forget their subscriptions. Sometimes they don’t
even know why they subscribed to your newsletter. Especially if the
person is seeking for information, he/she will subscribe to every
ezine or ecourse that will come across their search. They don’t
remember it after a while. If you send email to them after few months,
they simply accuse you of sending spam.
So how to safegaurd yourself from this type of accusations?
Follow up and Mailing list management software: You can manage your
