The world is really changing... where are all the freebie-people gone??? LOL!

I sent an offer to my mailing list members: if they write me back the promotional code I sent by the end of the month I will send them two tarts free, including shipping, and they can choose the scents.

But no one replied!! LOL so many looking for freebies and when you offer them they don't want them!!!

I would be willing to bet that two things are happening:

1. spam filters are catching your email.

2. if the filters don't catch them the email isn't being read, just deleted.

I have emails from places I have requested to be on their list that I don't always read - delete before even glancing. I wouldn't stop sending. I read about every 3rd one or so. Make sure you put something in the subject line about a special promotion. When Staples or Office Depot sends me an email I notice if there is a $20 coupon because it is always in the subject line.

One possibility is their email could have thought it was spam and filtered it out. Yahoo has the ability to even delete such mails (if you specify that in the options) so that you don't even get them, while most other emails will send them directly to a 'bulk mail' folder and the recipient may simply delete the whole folder without really checking for real emails. If your email was sent to everyone at once, it could have been considered as spam, but then there isn't a choice really, to do it individually as that would be too much manual work.

Another possibility is that they didn't read your newsletter. I do that a lot, and only read them when I am about to buy something and want to check and see if there is any discount coupon.

You're right there's not much you can do if your email gets deleted by the recipient's spam filter, or if the recipient chooses not to open it. Maybe having a more enticing title could help. Instead of "special edition..." how about "free samples available, limited time only" or something like that.
