It's Important To Be Polite When Marketing


I get quite a lot of junk email suggesting I take advantage of the company's really excellent price on E.D. medication.

I mean, not that they call it E.D. medication, they just go right ahead and suggest I take advantage of the 70% off on Viagra and Cialis sale they're having.

What's been happening lately with these emails that I think is really adorable, is that they've been addressing it directly to me.

Like-a-so:

Dear Mr. Victoria Smith.

Really? Your spam-machine has somehow learned the name attached to the email address but didn't manage to figure out that it's not a man's name?

I mean, I do appreciate the polite salutation, but it's odd.

As I blogged about today, my latest experience of online marketing was interactive bra ads that let me choose what size breasts I want displayed whilst reading webcomics.

And they say there's no such thing as progress..

Dominic: can you post a link to the breast-size page?

and Mr. Victoria: I didn't know you had a problem with E.D.

Don't worry. A lot of people struggle with it.

I took viagra recreationally once.....

Charles, if you go to Dominic's site, he's got a link there. It's pretty amusing.

I didn't know I had a problem either Charles. But apparently not having a penis is part of the reason I can't... you know.... get it going?
