In the case of some of the more dubious and/or aggressive opt-out techniques, the fine is a fairly minor one. Most, if not all, opt-out methods can be applied to those who have opted out, however. It is important to realize that some people are going to refuse to be part of your opt-out list even if you are giving them the option.
In many cases, those who refuse opt-out do so for reasons that are completely outside your control. The case of media is an example of such a case. I recently spoke to Chris, an online community manager from Europe who had done a number of opt-out surveys to see what the opt-out method was like.
Chris’ biggest reason for opting out was that his wife decided that it was a bad idea to “go with the flow.” She’s not really a fan of internet communities, which is fine. But she insisted that Chris shouldn’t opt-out of a survey because his “wife” would probably be annoyed if she knew that they had chosen not to participate in a survey.
“When I was in my 40s I wrote an online newsletter every month that was about 10 pages long and I had about 500 subscribers. I never knew that at the end of the month they sent me a letter saying that because I hadn’t sent them a newsletter within the month that I was in breach of the rules and the website had to get rid of me.
The letter said that because you hadnt sent them a newsletter after the month had passed that you couldnt be removed from the website. Although I am pretty sure this is true, if you do your homework you will find out that you are not the only one who was sent a letter, and if your spouse did not respond, they will probably be contacted by the website.
This one actually went out to customer service and was pretty straightforward. I would say that the company that sent it, Optimal Media, should be ashamed of themselves. If they had any idea that customers wanted to learn more about their company, they would have told them. If Optimal Media would have sent out a newsletter, the site for Optimal Media must have gotten a ton of emails, but they would never know that it was a spam site.
There have been a number of scams going on lately about opting-out services. So many that it’s become normal to look for them on your smartphone. The opt-out from Optimal Media? You’re actually opting out of a spam site. You can make that connection, you can see that it’s a legit, legitimate site. But you’re not opting out of the company. You’re opting out of your own company.
Optimal Media is a company that sells advertising space, and not the content. They don’t even sell the ads. They sell the advertising space. They get paid by the advertisers. They don’t even have to send out any emails. They just have to have a server in place and they can do that.
That’s basically what Optimal Media does. But they only have to sell ads, and they dont even have to sell the ads. They just have to have a server in place and they can do that.
