For your amusement…

Another email from another icky marketer; my “comments and edits” are in brackets [ ]

I would like to offer you a partnership with my seo company [funny — I already offer SEO to my clients. I’m listening…maybe you’ve got an amazing offer that will sweep me off my feet??] .

We will share [with] you a very generous commission per sale [golly, so tempting, how can I refuse?]. We offer a wide variety of service such as website design, website promotion, online consulting, and many more. [That’s funny…WE offer the same thing! We must be related. Mommy! He’s copying meeee!]

Let me know if you are interested [ummm…no, thanks. And may I wish you the utmost success in your business ventures?]


I have to laugh at these people. Do they really think someone will respond to an email like this? Well, at least it cheered up my blah Friday. 🙂

  1. Not good! Add to your spam list! I submitted my blog for free and invited a lot of spam to my inbox.

    Whenever I subscribe to an ezine, or use an online service, I use my “throw away” Gmail address, not my personal email address. That way, if they spam me, it doesn’t come into my private inbox. Gmail has an excellent spam filter, better than Hotmail’s or YahooMail’s.

    Thanks for the advice in your comment. I should use gmail as well.
    Hope you don’t mind that I notice a word “thing” in the sentence below.
