Has this ever happened to you?



_________________________________________________________________________________________

I'm getting pretty sick of noob companies like this, spamming bloggers like me because they can't afford advertising. This time, I wasn't so nice in my reply.

  1. Looks like you told them. If I get emails like this, I just tend to ignore them, but I applaud you for actually saying something x

  2. Got the mail too ;). I saw the 'bloggers database' and it's huuuuge but I never saw a blogger advertising for them. I don't really care (because I just had 1 mail like that :p)... What's annoying in my opinion are the "You just won $1,000,000" etc.

    I also love that you have done what they asked (mentioned them in a post), albeit not quite in the way they were hoping for.

  6. Good on you I say; I have a particularly low tolerance for these emails, they really wind me up. Wish I had articulated an email like yours in response to a few of them!

  7. you.go.girl.

    I got that email, but I just hit delete. I didn't even read through it. Does this mean, they have me listed on their website? I want absolutely no affiliation with a company I know nothing about. Yikes.

    xx Love & Aloha

  8. Hahahahahaha!! So proud of you for your reply. When I was working in Admin I'd receive emails like that everyday. I just would mark the address as junk and delete.

  10. yep. I got the email aswell. I was tempted to say some nasty things, but then again.. I didn't. I just kindly said no. Though I totally understand where you're coming from. We're not free advertisement robots.

  11. It happened to my friend I told her to charge them if they want a mention...They said they'll send over a cheque and they are still insisting she mentions them before the payment! Hahahah these guys are hoaxes!

  12. I love the reply you sent them! I've been emailed twice by the same people too and just mark it as spam and delete it without bothering to read it! x Sushi

  13. I can't say that I've gotten any emails like this - but, that said, there's not a huge market for my kind of blog, hahaha.

  19. I know what you mean, they are really irritating. And I had the exact same company email me about a month ago too, but I just chose to ignore it.

  37. That's horrible! I also get random e-mails from fellow "bloggers" asking me to enter their giveaway or go to their site, or something random... Blogs that I don't even follow! Taking my e-mail address to spam/bully me is not cool!

    I would've handled that the exact same way. So annoying!

  38. Hi, that's such an annoying email, good for you, standing up to them! I just got an email yesterday from a women's clothing site, actually with pretty cool clothes, asking me to place an ad which would give me 5 percent commission if someone clicks through and makes a purchase... I'm trying to decide how shady it is, because I do actually like the clothes. Hmm.

    cheers!

  39. Thanks for your advice, I think 5 percent is a bit low too, even though I do like the clothes. I feel afraid to trust anyone, plus I love my blog too much to put up just any old ad! So I didn't respond to the email :)

    cheers,
