Email Cloaking: Don’t Even Think About It!!!
The fact is, cloaking as achieved by several programs on the market is actually ILLEGAL. If you get caught doing as these programs or publishers suggest, you’re breaking the law and could face heavy fines! Seriously
Many of email marketing programs that offer “cloaking or stealth technology” do so by telling you configure their software to technically steal the bandwidth and resources of other ISP’s who you don’t have a relationship (a paid account) with.
Legally, cloaking is called “Theft of Services” and it is against the law. Need we say more?
If any software company tells you that “You do NOT need to have a paid e-mail account with an ISP to send e-mail, or says that instead of using your ISP’s computer; their software uses thousands of other HIGH SPEED computers across the net to send your messages,” Watch out!
“Should I “Cloak” My Identity?”
No, we don’t think so.
Here’s why cloaking or stealth is worthless. The sole purpose of Internet email marketing is to – SELL – something to someone you don’t know.
So, how does it appear to your potential customers if you are trying to hide your identity and real e-mail address?
What does that say about your credibility? Do you suppose the customer would do business with you or buy your product if they don’t know who you are?
The bottom line is if you mail using “stealth or cloaking” your potential customers will distrust you. It’s just bad business.
We do not recommend cloaking, and instead offer an alternative and here’s why. You should always offer people a real return e-mail address to respond to, but sometimes this isnt always possible.
Say your domain is down or youve changed email addresses recently, with 1AutomationWiz.com as your email services provider, you can change your “reply to” and “respond to” addresses to what ever you want for any email you send as long as the email address you use follows these requirements:
1: The email address you use must be a real email address that you have access to.
2: You dont pretend to be someone youre not. Pen names are fine as long as your contact information is valid.
3: You arent spamming and follow all CAN SPAM compliance regulations.
