I have to say that this whole scheme to charge for email delivery that AOL and Yahoo have come up with has me in a tailspin and losing sleep.
How will my newsletter get to almost 900 subscribers (raving fans!) from those two sources?
How will my classes be delivered?
I suspect this will cause a huge bump in my business plan this year. Regroup, rethink. It’s difficult enough to get email through all of the spam filters people have set up (have I told you that I despise spam filters????). I can’t imagine what will happen when 900 people are emailing me telling me they haven’t received my newsletter.
And it’s not just me. What about artists who are delivering email newsletters or exhibition announcements?
Of course, I don’t know what’s going to happen. I don’t even fully understand how it will work. Just sounds like a lot of red tape that I am not sure I want to deal with at all. I can only wait and see. It just doesn’t look pretty from this end.
