I’m so glad this marketing consultant got in touch with me

I got this in my inbox today from a “marketing consultant.”

Foddernetwork.com Team,

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 …

Two things:

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.
