How not to pitch a designer for a link.

Link building is hard work. I know, I’ve done it. However, it’s the quality of the message and targeting the individual that matters the most.

Now, lets forget the basics of personalization here and just focus on the message I received:

// Image lost. Sorry. Zooomr ate it. //

At what point would you pitch a blogger who has got a design background when you can’t even get your fonts to match?! There are bold, italic, all caps, and more than one font in use in this email. My first impression of comes from your email and that’s definitely not a good one.

Needless to say, I didn’t respond.

    You know, that email looks really familiar. Probably because I got one like it before but for a different topic.

    Those tend to be spam.

    I totally agree that they are spam, but yet they thought they tried so hard to make it look legit. 😉
