And what is? Newsletters and Action sale infos aren't spam letters. And you subscribed to it. If you don't like it you can always unsubscribe. I don't have any problems with receiving info from them..

again, that's not the point.

there's a difference between informing prospects / clients and spamming them daily.

it is all part of a companies identity.

almost daily 'offers' will eventually irritate the @#$@ out of your contacts leading to less sales and brand fracture, they seem desperate. it's not 1999.

a monthly newsletter would do.

Yeah _ I agree...I've been put off a few companies by their spam. The 'unsubscribe' button doesn't always work.

The result is that otherwise good companies will not be able to communicate valuable information to customers.

i know but i think lately NI changed their strategy on this.
normally i would get a mail every now and then, which is fine.

i'd like them to bundle these offers and put them out monthly and communicate update downloads of the NI apps i own whenever.

Yeah - I noticed a geenral change about 6 months ago...as the recession hit it seemed like they were trying to wring water from a dry sponge. I like an email update once per month but it annoys me when I have to delete junk email and I associate that with the company and their products.

No he was just noticing a new trend with NI mailing strategy that irritated him. He already explained it 3 Times jeeze!!!

I noticed too btw, it became on par with the odd sample pack companies. I put it in my spam, cuz I still wanna see what's new from time to time

It's not that straightforward - what if the recipient wants email but at reasonable intervals (monthly instead of weekly)?

I know its not your point but I unsubscribed a long time ago. It's really as easy as that. Not to mention if you frequent the net you will hear about the big deals through word of mouth. Those emails usually aren't worth me opening every other day they send them.

some customers want to hear news lolll! but they were just overdoing it. My solution is treat them like spam, and check your spam box from time to time

Maybe its me but I am not getting that many emails from them. If I remember right isn't there a way to set how frequently they send their emails out. I might get one or two a month. I generally like seeing when new stuff comes out

I decided to unsubscribe and it's very unlikely that Wikipedia will ever get another penny from me.

we are not talking about calculus here!!! but a company sending you more e-mails than you want...
A company is sending more emails than you want...it's not rocket science...someone at NI should wise up and realise they will lose customers that have taken time and resources to get onto the mailing list and also it will damage the company's standing/reputation...someone needs to tell them that. Besides which it's rude to hassle people with something they haven't requested.

sit back and think about that... it sounds crazy!!!

It's only crazy if one takes the view that the customer should conform to the company.

I don't mind NI emails, good deals most of the time when I read what they sent to my inbox.

What you're argument fails to appreciate is that some customers may prefer to have an occasional email...why would they want to unsubscribe from that?

thats crazy... but consumer wont know about the mail if they unsubscribe before something they might have liked comes out due to annoyance. Who loses? NI. Too many mails is bad marketing. Over-saturation is bad marketing

The young producer, woke up on a beautiful Saturday morning, and noticed a disturbing trend. It all started, when he logged on to his computer. To his horror, Native Instruments, had sent him yet another e-mail. Did they not send him an e-mail just yesterday? How could these people do this to a young producer like this? He had so much potential, such a bright future. Now it's all ruined.

How will the young producer recover? How will he have the courage to wake up in the morning and check his e-mail?

Native Instruments sent this young man an e-mail, every single day for an entire week. On certain days, it was even more than one. Devastating. This kind of behavior is absolutely unacceptable, and the young producer must let the world know what NI did to him.
