Hello, may I pierce your head with a spike? To me, that’s what the following message (a real email from a real enterprise) really says:
So I’m going to accept a challenge posed by a copywriting and autoresponder expert,
[xxxx], and write an auto responder (also called lead nurturing email) every day
(not including weekends) for the next 30 days. I will be writing about all sorts of things –
focusing on the world of online and B2B marketing. They could include things about
my life that somehow pertains. Who knows?!
There will be no sales pitches in any of these emails — just my thoughts and experiences,
focused on the world of marketing and my perspectives.
My question to you is this: Would you like to receive these emails? The experiment
needs an audience so we can see what works and what doesn’t — and I’d love your feedback
and replies as we go along.
So if you’re up for it — getting an email from me every day for the next 30 business days –
click the link below and let me know you’d like to receive them.
What am I missing here? I can understand why the author of this email would want to promote this 30-day tsunami of spam — but why would anyone want to be on the receiving end of it? (To get “things about my life that somehow pertains”?) And why would this email author expect anyone to be excited about this “opportunity”?
Please, I’m serious. Enlighten me. If you see something I don’t, let me know.
