Neil Ruggles asks a bunch of questions about advertising on mailing
The first question that comes to my mind is what do you have to sell that
my list might be interested in?
But say you do. My list is closed to members so you'd have to join to
So say you join and post an ad. My list is one of those chatty, social
kinds of lists (it didn't start out that way, it's what it evolved into)
so most of the posters are familiar with each other. I'm not sure what
their reaction would be if some total stranger dropped in and started
pitching their goods.
It wouldn't be hostile, I don't allow flaming, but it might be interesting.
I don't know. I moderate to keep junk out, my list is noise-free. I'm not
sure it'd work. I do think it'd undermine the integrity of the list if
the members knew someone was paying me to post ads to it.
