A while back I had an email conversation with a chap from some company.
This chap obviously added me to the company’s contact database. I received a couple of messages. Dear Guy. Some of you know my real name. For the record, it is not Guy.
I try to be polite, so I replied to their message, just to find out:
- whether they were actually mailing Guy. In which case, please stop sending messages to me. Or,
- whether they were actually mailing me. In which case, please get my name right in future.
I thought nothing more of it.
But the mails kept coming. To Guy. So that tells me that either:
- the company don’t bother reading their correspondence. Or,
- that the company can’t be bothered updating its system.
So what happens? The messages go straight to my Junk folder. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200. Now, there’s effective marketing!
Oh, and my image? I typed guy into Pixabay, and that’s what I got back.
To Guy, whoever he may be.
