Interesting claim. WHO are these companies who have spent thousands on hiring top copywriters? And WHO are these "top copywriters"?
And why even bother trying to find something interesting in Spam?
Cause it sells/works?
How do you know that?
Cause you keep getting the same messages over and over?
Doesn't prove anything. Just means you keep getting the same message over and over.
Could mean the people sending the spam have found another sucker to give them money to spam. Could mean out of the 50 million email address spamed, one person bought. Could mean someone else just bought the "50 million email address on CD with suggested products to sell complete with their sources" CD and is giving it a try.
Personally I think it would be more beneficial to go to the top selling affiliate sites and save their sales letters into your "swipe file." Obviously they are top because they are selling; they are selling because of the sales letter; and you will learn more because you will have copies of sales letters that are working without annoying people.
Yes Spam can teach you something...
In other words
Spam can teach you how NOT to do it.
