This Oscar, awarded by a judging panel of one – me – goes to the sleaziest email spam that I think I have ever received. It is so bad that I decided to post it in full, and this email absolutely will head the list showcasing the sales emails that sales people (or marketers working on their behalf) should never send. I am spam collector and have been saving these little jewels to share with the world. Watch for my upcoming e-book.
Email messages like this one are the reason why sellers get a bad rap. The worst part is that this guy is selling an automated content marketing system that in he actually thinks works. He talks about personalizing the message and making it compelling. He fails on both fronts.
What he doesn’t know is that while he is “lying on the beach in Florida”, he’s burning himself to a crisp with this type of sales pitch. He might even find himself having a conversation with the feds one day soon.
Read on and shake your head in disbelief, as I did. If you are “serious about expanding your sales”, you will NOT use this approach. Tom Mack – you are an idiot!
