Yes, we’ve all done it. We read one piece of content from a website that we like and we then think, “this person knows what they are talking about. They really get it!” So we sign up for their mailing list and then we really get it. Mass email after email trying to get us to buy something or be a part of their money-making schemes. It turns out, not all people send quality mass emails!
Our suggestion, rather than signing up for an email list based on one piece of quality content, make sure to research about the people that will be sending mass emails to you. Email list can be a very informative and valuable way of keeping informed, but make sure the informer is of the up-and-up. What is their background? Are they an actual authority figure in the industry? Take these things into consideration and get signed up for quality email lists that pertain to your interests and goals.
