Hey,

 

Does it  bother anybody else when people put out a huge landing page email and don't tell you what they're pushing?  It may be something that I checked out days, months or even a year or more ago! Are they trying to trick us into something? Are they just embarrassed about who they're pushing?  Quit It!!  I don't care what you're pushing if I don't have all of the facts. If I already checked it out and didn't join, why would now be any different?  What do YOU think??

Hi Steve,

 

I don't join them if they don't tell me what they're offering.

The purpose of Landing Pages/Squeeze Pages is to get you on their mailing list for future mailings. I think that is why they don;t indicate who or what they are because they want you on their list. I agree they should indicate who or what they are but they are focused on their list building and could care less about the rest. Keep in mind that this is more a numbers game with the sales coming in the future.

I agree. the thing about not saying who or what they are about means they are missing out on branding themselves

I thought I was the only one who was bothered by that. I don't like to subscribe to something I don't know what it is because I might not be interested. I see a lot of people advertising squeeze and landing pages that don't tell you what it is. I never subscribe either.

When I get a nondescriptive email with only a signup form I delete. No name or description s a form of spam.

I agree, I prefer knowing what it is that I'm signing up to first. But I totally understand why people do it. Like Garrett said, they just want you on their list.

They are just trying to pull people in, no matter what.  So, I just move on to, hopefully, a more honest site. The ones I used to check out were either ones I'd been a member of a while or, more often or not, a site I didn't trust.
