Friday Fanmail: Pressurising in your city


It’s Friday Fanmail time! Each and every Friday, except when I don’t, I share some of the fanmail I receive about this blog, so that we may all share in the warm fuzzies.

This week’s message was rather brief, from someone purporting to be Rose Brown:

Do you need SEO services on your website? We are based in your city. If yes, please let me know our experts will email you the best proposal to consider/compare. Our expert will not pressurize you to hire us, in fact we just want you to check who we are and what we offer.

I guess that’s one way to simplify a mail merge: just say your city. And the idea of pressurising someone in a sales context is intriguing, especially if one were to avoid the bends after sinking time in a sales pitch.
