emails --- How often?

I have hired an advertising and marketing person and we have a question. How often can we send emails out to our customer base without irritation? And, what kind of context would you like to see?

Looking forward to your responses.

Thanks to the best customers on the planet.... Bend-Tech Customers.

I don't mind once a week if it's from someone I signed up to get them from. Also the ones I get now have good content and information so it's worth browsing through to see what's up, new and or relevant. The ones that don't do this I just unsubscribe form.

I voted twice a month, but would be fine with once a week as long as there is actually content.

I'm on site pretty much every day. E-mail would be redundant. There was no "never"....

The current frequency is good, but once a week is my vote.
I love seeing all the updates yall send out, im subscribed to the youtube channel and look forward to new vids.

New products, product updates, "hey look at this", all are good and not just deleted.

Context? Tech, how to's, quick guides, new products.. im in for it all

I voted once a month. Seems realistic. Less likely to have people unsubscribe. More likely to read all of it instead of skimming for things.

I vote for no more than once a week. Once every two weeks would be great.

I'll add to my original observation. I get weekly e-mails from places that have caught my attention and have subscribed to their website. After the first half dozen times perusing thru them I no longer look at them, they go directly to trash. If I want something from them I'll go look at their website, it's why I subscribed in the first place. If I get one once a month or less I don't unsubscribe. I think it's a good idea to keep the brand at the forefront of the consumers attention but there is a fine line before it becomes garbage.
Are you trying to sell to every Tom, and Harry, Dick, or are you going after a specific market?

I voted for once a month. I used to receive the Bend Tech monthly news letter but have not received one in a few months.

I think it comes down to how often your adding new things .

Specials new tech info etc.

If your always plugging the same old thing to the same people it gets old fast
