What is Spam?
Spam is commercial email or unsolicited bulk email,
including “junk mail”, which has not been requested by the
recipient. It is intrusive and often irrelevant or
offensive, and it wastes valuable resources.
Spam messages are the opposite of permission-based
email, which are normally anticipated, personal, relevant
and/or associated with a pre-existing business or personal
relationship. Inappropriate newsgroup activities, consisting
of excessive posting of the same materials to several
newsgroups, are also deemed to be spam.
If you must contact thousands of recipients you must do it
through permission marketing. A sample of permission
marketing is this:
1.Prospects see an ad about ways on how to make money online
(this is what is called a teaser, where you only state the
benefits of the program you are promoting) and you invite
them to request more info about it.
2. Then they'd usually fill out a form in a capture page
with their personal email and name requesting
that you send them more detailed information on your offer.
This triggers an autoresponder that will verify that they
have asked for the information and once they confirm that,
then and only then, they will be instantly redirected to the
site of the program you are promoting, in this case myMoneyFish site.
3. What is the “Can Spam” law?
Email marketing is super powerful. Unfortunately, many
Internet Marketers abused this privilege. Believe it or not,
Spam was one of the fastest growing industries online from
1999-2003. The Federal Government has stepped in and is
working to end this.
As Legitimate Internet marketers myMoneyFish applauds
the actions of the US Government with the "Can Spam Act of
2003". All legitimate marketers are seeing an increase
response from their marketing efforts, and the ones who had
been ruining it for us could get heavily fined.
We have included a run down of this law; advise on how to
comply, and our legal disclaimers on this page. We recommend
you take the time to read before embarking into any mass
Here is a brief run down of the law:
1) The law became effective Jan 1, 2004.
2) It prohibits using or falsifying email header
3) It prohibits the use of open relay to "deceive or mislead
recipients" about the origin of a commercial email.
4) It prohibits "harvesting," "dictionary attacks" and
5) It prohibits commercial email without an unsubscribe
process. Either a web link or return email address are
acceptable for unsubscribing, you have 10 business days to
process removal requests.
6) It prohibits automated methods to sign up for free
Web-based email accounts. (Like Yahoo or Hotmail)
7) It prohibits registering for "5 or more" email accounts
or "2 or more domain names" with false information and using
them to send commercial e-mail messages.
8) It prohibits sending "sexually oriented material" unless
it includes a label to be created by the FTC. And, you don't
have to do that if it is opt in. (Violations punishable by
up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine)
9) The FTC will be producing a report on possible mandated
subject line labeling, such as ADV (required in CA) for
advertising. As currently drafted, the Can Spam Act requires
UCE to carry such information identifying it as an
advertisement or solicitation but does not mandate any
specific language.4.myMoneyFish Spam
