Especially when the product is being pushed so relentlessly hard. Affiliate Marketers Hitting Hard or Faking It with Email Marketing By now, the typical member of an IM guru’s Email list would likely be feeling overwhelmed, lost, tired, frustrated, etc, if the guru has been busy promoting and selling.
