I signed up to Richer Sounds VIP club a few months back to keep an eye-out for any bargains they might have - and I got an email every 5-6 days or so. A little over-frequent (i.e. borderline nuisance) but bearable.
In the last month they really upped the ante! Has anyone else noticed? In the last month I've had 14 emails from them! I know it's the Christmas/January Sales window, but still - it's incredibly annoying. I know I've had a bit of a rant about invasive marketing emails before (particularly the "you must opt out" (rather than opt-in) ones), but I wonder do organisations realise that they need to strike a balance? An email isn't the same as TV adverts - i.e. you expect the TV/radio to blare out adverts every 15 minutes - your email inbox is a bit more of an intrusion. Marketing should be tailored and used sensibly/sparingly to maximise impact/minimise pester. I've now unsubscribed from all of their marketing emails, but wonder if other forumites have been similarly deluged.
