Email Surveys

Expert: Bill

Neelam asked:

"I am trying to start an Internet business, but I want to conduct a survey on the Internet to see if it's a good idea or not. Would it be considered spamming if I sent an email survey directly to people who I think might be interested, asking them for their opinion?"

Bill answered:

"This is borderline, but because Spam is so widely hated, I'd recommend not risking the wrath of potential customers. There are plenty of other ways, online and offline, to conduct surveys."
