Seems like every few days I get this crap....
I'll stick with Appraiser USA, I occasionally get a cold call because of my listing.
I wonder if the originators of these sites went to those money seminars?

Dear Valued Appraiser,

Your Appraisal.com complimentary account is expired. Your complimentary membership lacked the exposure necessary to have success at Appraisal.com. The Premium membership is strongly recommended at Appraisal.com. 90-95% of all orders go to premium members.

This is an OFFICIAL invitation to join back up with Appraisal.com, at the premium membership level. Although Appraisal.com is up 75% in volume, we understand that most appraisal companies are down during this strenuous time in the appraisal industry. As a result, if your company upgrades your account, Appraisal.com will set the cycle of the membership at 18 months. You will not need to renew your Appraisal.com again until at least July 2009. The cost is $349.00.

If your have any questions or require any additional information, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thanks!

Dear Real Estate Appraiser!
Tired of being listed in an Appraiser Directory in 55th or 109th place?
GetBestAppraiser.com cordially invites you to join our new Directory of Real Estate Appraisers at www.GetBestAppraiser.com
GetBestAppraiser.com is a nationwide advertising service specifically designed to help consumers and financial institutions quickly find real estate appraisers serving any county in the USA.
GetBestAppraiser.com does not have several pages of appraisers listed in every county for every area. Too many listings will be confusing to the lender or other client and reduces the chance of any one appraiser being chosen. So we have decided on a first come, first serve, limited number of listings per county.
Appraisers are listed on each county page in the exact order that their application for a county is received, so be the first in your service area to complete the On-Line Application.

Pander to us and we respond in desperation...yeah, I doubt many "professionals" are treated this way. So I conclude we are not professional...we're documented non-aliens.

YOU can use the same tools that the pros use! Appraisal.com helps major financial institutions connect to real estate appraisers in every county of the USA. If YOU need to document the true market value and replacement cost of your home, the best way to do it is with a professionally prepared real estate appraisal.

Unlike free online services that instantly “guess” the value of your home, we’ll send a real, live real estate appraiser to your property to perform a thorough valuation analysis. Then, when they have completed their research (usually in just a few days time), we will forward you a legally-compliant real estate appraisal.

You can use this document to support the value of your
home with many organizations, including the IRS,
insurance companies, courts of law, tax assessors, estate attorneys and more.

I am thinking much of this on line marketing is Bull Boop. How much of it really pays. However tons make money off of it. It not cheap.

Their business plan is based on the old adage:

Throw enough crap on a wall and some of it will stick.

Their marketing strategy is based upon the assumption:

Send out enough of these solicitations to appraisers and some will write and send checks for $395.
