I have been asked by some to provide email notifications or newsletters pertaining to GPO.
In the past I have avoided this. In this day and age, we are all bombarded by unsolicited information. Have you ever bought a product and then placed on an email "newsletter" list (often a disguised sales pitch), or a sales campaign, and constantly barraged with product news?
Many feel that sending email to people who have not specifically requested is undignified, shows disrespect for the customer, and is usually regarded as spam. Do you agree?
Or is it important for users to be kept in touch with and apprised of product information? Should I keep customers informed exclusively by the forum and website? Or should I engage in mass emailing?
I would appreciate knowing what your thoughts are.
