I got this in my inbox today from a “marketing consultant.”
I thought you might like to know some reasons why you are not getting enough Social Media and Organic search engine traffic for Foddernetwork.com.
Wait, wait! I know this one!
I’m not getting enough “Social Media” (capital “S,” capital “M”) and “Organic search” (capital “O,” not sure why it’s a lowercase “s”) because it’s been years since those sites were updated.
That little fact is what makes the postscript on the original message so confusing:
PS I: I am not spamming. I have studied your website and believe I can help with your business promotion …
1. When you say you’re not spamming you most definitely are spamming.
2. If you clicked through to any of the sites listed on foddernetwork.com you’d see they ceased publishing quite a long time ago. Your extensive study of my web properties must have missed that. Odd.
And while I’ve got you here, esteemed marketing consultant, here’s a tip: Your tone needs work. You can think I’m an idiot, but don’t let me know that.
