I received a "negging" marketing email today for SEO type services which read as follows:
"Your business stood out from the rest, but not in a good way…
I don’t want to waste too much of your time, so I won’t dive into the specifics too much..."
Having had a stressful few days, this was the last thing I needed. Our website brings in as much business as we can handle, so we are very happy with it. We work hard to keep it relevant and we have someone internally who looks after SEO and Google Adwords.
It reminded me of a previous marketing emails where the subject was something like "Termination of contract" or "We're Leaving". It would give you a fright seeing the subject and then you dive closer and it is someone offering to help you retain your clients.
Does anyone else receive these types of emails? Do they actually work?
