Email Volume as Bankruptcy Indicator

I have been noticing that in the past few years a number of companies have gone out with a bang meaning just before they close their doors they bombard their lists with email.
Normally increasing electronic mail frequency is a smart and low-cost way to ensure you ramp up your marketing messaging.
So what’s the problem? Spam lists… As a company ramps up it’s unsolicited email volume the recipients add the sender to their spam list. At a certain point you end up on global spam lists and it is then game over for your company.
If you keep a watchful eye on your inbox and spam filter you may just be able to spot the next company in Chapter 11.

    Very interesting. I’m keenly interested in events like these that predict corporate events – layoffs, mergers, missed product ships. Can you offer any specific examples or details?
