I’d like to pose a question to you, the esteemed One Degree reader:
*”Does it make sense to send a message to your e-mail list telling them that you will be launching a new web site ‘very soon’?”*
If you click on the image above you’ll be able to see the e-mail I just received from “Black’s Photo”:http://www.blackphoto.com. I’m puzzled by this as the message seems to be saying “we’d like to interupt your day to tell you _not_ to come to our site now, but that you’ll really want to at some point in the future, we just can’t tell you quite when.”
Am I missing something? Is there a reason to send this kind of message? Black’s isn’t alone in doing this but I’ve never understood the logic.
