I subscribe to a number of newsletters, like many Internet
users. As a result, my in-box is regularly full. I
therefore periodically unsubscribe from publications which
have lesser value to me, in order to keep the volume under

I can assure you that I will quickly unsubscribe from any
publication which "teases" me, rather than providing
concise, timely, complete, and useful information.

If you have a monopoly on the information you are
delivering, you might get away with it. But if there is
another publication with comparable information, your
subscribers will end up there.

Advertisers are discovering that ads in quality newsletters
produce higher clickthroughs than banners. Why not
concentrate your ad sales efforts on newsletter ads?

Just my $.02.
