DirectMatches.com / Spam!
I am an Online marketer and I am trying to get some sales for various products that I am affiliated with so that I may build my income and get ahead financially. Well, I have an ad submitter which placed 1500 free classified ads for me at one time. I thought this would be a wonderful tool, but have found that I am getting spammed to death. The spam is coming from Direct Matches... a social networking site. These people comb the employment sites and find you. I kind of understand what Direct Matches is but I never asked, nor do I have time to build some account where I have to trade info. with other people. I never asked what it was! I never needed it!
Well, I realize that I shouldn't have used my email address in my ads, but I didn't know it would be included. So, not only have I not gotten sales, but these great people, who are 'only trying to help'-as one of them put it, are driving me crazy. They say, "Your business could be better, you need us." and so on' How do they know? They don't know me.
My ads are for hiring people who want a real business opportunity. I also placed ads for health related products and I get no spam there. I always get so excited to see a new email, thinking that it is really people who want help. These jerks don't know how I get my hopes up... only to be let down by another piece of spam. I am sickened by them.
What gets me is that they are sending unsolicited email. If you do not ask for it, it is SPAM! That is not legal and should be reported. This is not what marketing is about. If you build up a good site selling your products then people will once to you and you don't drive them crazy. I would NEVER do sales if I had to do what they do. They give sales people a BAD name.
The company is Direct Matches, found at http://www.directmatches.com/. This is not the only one that is bothering me, but it is them the most. Avoid them. Anyone who has to beat you over the head to get business is not legit!
