Had this quick convo yesterday with my friend (and fellow email crusher) Ben on Twitter.

Here’s what I tweeted out based on a real message I got:


What does it tell you when someone says something insane like “email marketing is dead”?

What it really means is, “I suck at email, so you should suck at it too. And I’m a guru, so… do as I say, not as I do.”

Fortunately, I love it when people “of influence” say stupid things like this (if it’s true).

Why? Because it makes it that much more profitable for people like us to capitalize on email:


(.. and no, I don’t own a Lambo. It’s an internet marketing figure of speech for bro-marketing ridiculous income claimers.)

It’s kind of about learning from people that actually DO what they teach. Funny that.

Anyhoo. Email will always be the highest-profit medium for selling online. Learn it and earn it.

Get it where you wanna get it..

So I did this quick email test the other day.

Actually it was kind of by accident..

.. but it proved what I’ve been doing all along.

I tested out two separate and unique subject lines, for the exact same email.

One of them I wanted to get placed in Gmail’s “promotions” tab.

The other I wanted to land in either the “updates” tab or direct to inbox.

Again, 2 subject lines, same email copy.

What I did worked for what I was trying to do..

.. which leads me to further understand how to get our email delivered where I want it to go.

It all goes back to how we write emails here at

It all comes down to “having that daily conversation with your list”.

Simply put..

If your email subject “looks” like it has ANYTHING to do with marketing/selling/promoting..

.. guess where it ends up –> The Promotions Tab.

(which nobody ever looks at)

I can show you exactly what my results were and how I got them..

You’d be surprised which subject lines landed me in promotions.

Just become an EmailReboot subscriber and you’re on your way to BETTER, more profitable email.

Sales every day? Yup. Sounds good to me 🙂

Here ya go:

See ya.

Sugar-coated Cheeto-inhaling Oprah watchers..

Opinions are like… yeah you know.

Everybody’s got one.

And I get a LOT of opinionated email replies.

Usually about my take on how things work in marketing.

Because, as you know, I don’t sugar-coat. I tell it like it IS.

And I get happy little replies like, “Geoff I think it would work better if y’all did it THIS way.”.

..And I KNOW these are coming from those Cheeto inhaling, couch indenting, Oprah watchers, who have never ventured outside their virtual “coffee table” offices to satisfy their hopeum-laced dreams of internet marketing grandeur.

ie. They haven’t done shit (and probably ne’er will).

Here’s the thing.

They have opinions. I have results.

That’s the distinction, really.

No advice that I give on marketing is based on Geoffy’s hopes and dreams.

They’re always based on data and results. Simple, really.

I actually do stuff. I report back. Easy McPeasy.

So? Save your opinions until after you have results to back it up.

If you have results to speak of, I’d be more than happy to talk.

Until then.. listen and learn.

See ya.

Did I Wake You?

Dearest list subscribers,

So after the email I sent out yesterday, I got tons of very interesting, and sometimes hilarious, responses.

I got everything from threats and confusion, to praise and respect.

I also got plenty of unsubscribes, which is awesome! (Unsubscribes make me more money)

It’s funny, when you threaten to exclude people from your communication, they can get quite offended…

… even if you’ve NEVER heard from them before, or have no clue as to how they got on your list in the first place.

What I wanted to do was get people’s attention, and kind of wake people up to make sure they’re still listening.

..And it worked as it should have.

Remember, you should always be learning from what other successful people do in their marketing, and particularly the results that they get with their marketing.

Marketing is not personal, but many people take it personally, and they shouldn’t.

I’m not afraid to deal with any backlash from an offended subscriber, and neither should you..

.. as long as it leads to more engagement with my list, which it always absolutely does, and that is what you should be shooting for.

Make sense?

Not everybody does this, but they should.

Case in point, I saw someone on Facebook yesterday bragging about the fact that they got 46 opens and 22 clicks from their campaign.

.. however that was from a list of over 8000 subscribers. Obviously, that’s nothing to brag about.

Plus, having such a low open rate means that you will get penalized by the ISPs for having such a low open rate, and even less of your emails will get delivered in the future.

In other words, being an irresponsible email marketer will hurt you in the short term and in the long run.

So wake up your list and get them engaged!
