We recently signed up for MyOffers and Clash Club (ukprizedraws) to monitor the amount of email we receive from these companies. Over a month has passed since signing up and the surprise news is .. we haven’t received much from them!
Clash in the last month have sent 4 emails, whilst MyOffers have managed only 2 – one of which was a monthly newsletter and the other from Dialaphone (which we unsubscribed from and haven’t received anything else since). The number from MyOffers may be small as when we tested the site we only entered one prize draw – if you enter more, you’re probably going to get more marketing communications.
Why don’t we call it “spam”? Spam has become a term for just about any unwelcome email, however remember when you register for sites like MyOffers, Clash and even Loquax you’re optting in to receive email from them. If you unsubscribed from one of these sites, and still received offers and promotions, it would be unsolicited and therefore spam.
We’ll continue to monitor our emails and report back with any further findings.
