marketing services want the wendy house

tags: ,

I am 100% responsible for authoring everything on this website, except a few identified quotes.

Marketers are able to find my email address and they often email offering to produce blog content for me. The letters they send are a standard format that shows no awareness of my blog style, content or theme. Normally I file their emails under “junk”, ignoring them and they move on. Occasionally one will be persistent, sending multiple related emails with well crafted text designed to engage me in the possibility of letting them use my blog to host their content. Lucy, email below, is an example of a persistent marketer. Unlike previous emails this one provides email addresses that appear to be hosted on the domain of an agency promoting it’s digital marketing services. This might actually be legitimate! http://www.click.co.uk/

I’ve written to Lucy and quoted my fees and conditions for hosting her content on the Wendy House. You’ll be reassured to know that I’ve informed Lucy that any blog post provided by her team will be overtly credited to them and will incur fees to cover my costs – legal review, copy editing, insurance, my time and other incidental expenses such as a bottle of champagne for me and a new luxury scratching-post-tower for Sampo. I wonder if Lucy will reply.

    I’m finding the match between Champagne and a scratching post hard to cope with. And… since when would anyone use the work ‘bespoke’ for anything other than clothing? I can think of several , less artificial alternatives.. like ‘custom’.

    I’m still waiting for Lucy to get back to me. I suspect I’ve priced myself out of the market but I thought it best to ask since she seems like a polite, organised person who’s prepared to put together something bespoke for me

    Now Phoebe is offering me her services and those of Lucy’s three colleagues. I’ve asked them to coordinate and check that my fees are acceptable before they write again. Phoebe’s email:
    lack of internal coordination
