I've been collecting a list of email addresses of ppl with online activities who might be interested in what i provide in my forums as a user to user trading community.
So, i thought that i should be sending the email as an HTML format to look more attractive and stuff, but i was afraid some of them "the users" will be using some email service providers that might NOT support the HTML email.
What i did is sending the email as plain text and attached a PDF file with the interface i had in mind instead of sending it as directly in HTML format.
- Did i do the right thing, cuz till now i am getting very low responses from TARGETED ppl "as they should be already interested in what i am providing on my website, so i should be having better responses as a percentage of the outgoing emails i am creating"
- I was told to make things easier and direct a bit, send an HTML format email cuz no one nowadays will ever download an attachement "even a pdf file" from some sender who is not in his mailing list ... is that right?
thanks in advance, and sorry for the long post
