How to turn an UNSUBSCRIBE into a laugh 

The verdict is in. In the spam wars, HUMANS WIN.

Check out this email exchange with someone asking to be taken off my mailing list for a special series of seminars I'm doing for a Chamber of Commerce:

please take me off the e-mail list

Then I replied with this:

Mr. Mike:

You bad man. No more seminars for you. No business plan. No sales.

You off list. Me mad now. No seminars, you hear?!! You off list for good!!!!

And he replied with the following:

No be mad. Me already know everything.


Is that classic, or what? I was being funny - and he was being funny. We were being human with each other!

Try something like this the next time someone asks to be removed from your list. You may win a friend, a client, or both!!
