Read every single word of short, succinct emails from fellow bloggers and take your bloggers at their word. That is, believe the words. This also means trusting the bloggers. Take her at her word. When they say something, they mean it. Working successfully with email means opening real communication channels between bloggers. When you are real, open, and on the same wavelength, you can be efficient, effective, and pinpointed.
Reading and processing every word in short, concise emails will essentially save you time. More importantly, it will avoid wasting time. I scanned my email a few moments ago. I marked some emails as spam. Why? I didn't allow pointless bloggers to steal my time with their replies.
I send the following email to any blogger interested in guest posting, link placements, or ad options for Blogging From Paradise:
"Hello 🙂 Please read: (insert link to my advertisement page)."
My ad page lists all prices, requirements and clearly how I immediately mark all negotiating, swapping, or budgeting email responses as spam. I will then delete the emails. Also, on my ad page, it says to ONLY reply if you pay my prices and work with me. I'm not joking. I mean it that way. Unfortunately, some bloggers have not read all of my ad pages and unfortunately they have not taken me and my words seriously. The fools didn't take my word for it. Guess what happened? These few people haven't handled email successfully because I label their pointless responses as spam, to bring them one step closer to guaranteeing that ALL of their emails will end up in spam or junk folders.
Carefully reading and trusting all of the words in my email would save both your time and your email dealing, because like people who don't reply when they can't work with me, you save time if you are mindful , respect my words and respect my time.
Read every single word in short emails. Slower. Calm down. Be attentive. Trust bloggers. When I advise you that I spam all emails from bloggers who are unwilling to pay my prices, I mean it. I'm not joking. I read 1-2 words and when bloggers don't say, "I'm in, let's work," I label the email as spam and forget about the blogger forever. The thought that I am joking, joking, or bluffing, or not reading my words, will lead to a terrible result for you. Good luck trying to build a blogging business from the folder of spam. Hello; I warned you. Is not my fault. All your fault.
Respect professional bloggers. Put yourself in their cyber shoes. I was just taking on anything that isn't serious business policy with this spam because over the years I've been walking back and forth with cheap, greedy, desperate bloggers who have been hell-bent on trying to get my time and attention, and myself for it have decided to base my entire blogging business model on their budget. One day the light bulb went out; Either pay my plan or I'll spam your email replies. I had it. I've arranged everything on a clear, straight to the point, direct advertising page. All the details along with a clear warning: If bloggers don't respect me and my time enough to read all of the words on my ad page AND trust what I say, every single blogger who doesn't follow my specific instructions will have to pay the price .
Hello; nothing personal, guys. I only look for the 25th hour every day. Just read every word in my email, process every word, and trust me. I'm not kidding, joking, or bluffing. Respect other bloggers enough to believe their emails the first time… ..or pay the blogging price 😉
