I just received a letter in the mail from XY7.com that begins:
(letter text censored due to copyright complaint)
It goes on for several paragraphs and a bulleted list, explaining why I should use their on-line marketing services. But there's one major problem: I didn't stop by their booth! (I very rarely give my card out to booth people at these conferences.)
If this sounds familiar, it's because almost the same thing happened back in 2004 with Atlas OnePoint. Strangely, that was also the result of an SES Conference.
When are these people going to learn?!
Would you trust your on-line marketing to a spammer?
For what it's worth, XY7.com is a division of Rapid Response Marketing, LLC. The letter was sent from:
[address censored due to copyright complaint]
Please let him know if you were similarly spammed. (I've left off his cell phone and fax numbers.)
Amusingly, the letter ends with "Please bring this letter to our both at the Ad Tech SF Conference to receive your XY7 Cash Card."
I am going up to ad:tech this afternoon. Perhaps I will drop by with my digital camera, or maybe a microphone. I wonder if he will be there. Image the fun!
