Do you want me to tell you about some of the e-mails that I’m getting?
I got one on the 22nd Sept, and I’ve been wondering what to do with it. Here’s the deal…………an online agency, which conducts web site campaigns with bloggers (that’s me) has contacted me about a competition that they’re running. Good prize of £100 of groceries, easy as pie questions. But to enter, you’ll have to register with their site, and, I suspect, you’d start getting e-mails from ’specially selected companies’. I know a lot of sites have these competitions, but I personally view them as a cheap way of of marketing, and of gaining a lot of e-mail addresses for their clients to then spam with. Also, I think that a newspaper would charge them for advertising space, but they get cheap (actually it would probably be ‘free’ ) advertising space on a bloggers website. I don’t think that I’m particularly media savvy, but I feel that these companies are taking the piss, to some extent.
So, if any of these companies want to PAY me for advertising their competitions, and can assure me that anyone who registers for it will not be spammed for all eternity, then I’ll reconsider.
