I came across your site while looking for resources for our next blog and I knew I had to
reach out immediately, kudos on a fantastic blog. My name is Joss, and I'm reaching out on behalf of a leading web hosting company.
This month, we're looking to secure sponsorship placements with five prominent blogs and your site jumped straight to the top of our list. Please let me know if this is something you're interested in discussing further.
So I answered:
Thanks for the kudos; I might blog about this approach! What do you have in mind?
It's obviously spam; it carefully doesn't say anything about my blog. My guess is that, if Joss answers, I'll be given the opportunity to pay $$$ to get a mention of my blog on these "five prominent blogs", which will not be as prominent as they appear to be.
We'll see. I did warn Joss that I'd be blogging about this. My guess is that I won't hear back, because in my experience, when I do contact a company and show interest in their services, they discover that they already have too many customers and the sales people aren't as interested in getting more as the marketing people were in drumming up leads.
I got this too. Good to know we both have prominent blogs. Though yours is only famous cos of being Angie's dad...ReplyDelete
I came across SilverSpoon London while looking for resources for our next blog and I knew I had to reach out immediately, kudos on a fantastic blog. My name is Milo, and I'm reaching out on behalf a growing food and drink retailer who operates in the same marketplace Hemsley and Hemsley and Deliciously Ella. This month, we're looking to secure sponsorship placements with five prominent blogs and SilverSpoon London jumped straight to the top of our list. Please let me know if this is something you're interested in discussing further.
Thanks for getting back to me.
To give you an idea on what we do, we would be looking to write sponsored content for your site. This content would usually come in the form of a 500-word article and would include a ‘do-follow’ link to our client. The writer of the article would spend time on your site and get a feel for tone, style, and the type of content you usually post. They can go and write a tailored article for your blog. You can review, edit and reject the article if you find it not suitable. We want to contribute to your site and pay you for the privilege of posting it. However, we don't divulge the name of our clients or brands at this stage - normally only when the articles are sent over for review.
As long as you are comfortable, we would also request that the post not be marked as ‘sponsored’.
In this regard, would you accept sponsored posts at http://www.silverspoonlondon.co.uk/? If $50 per post is acceptable to you, just let me know so we can proceed further.
"kudos on a fantastic blog" indicates that it's the same spammer.ReplyDelete
$50 for advert, and you're not allowed to mention that it's an advert.
You two need to get together with James Veitch!!ReplyDelete
