Via spam, this arrived today:
We are excited about our future and we want our investors to have the same zeal for [company] that we posses.
No passion for spelling, however. The email goes on to tell me specifically why I should invest in this company. Point number one (my emphasis added):
[Company] Will Skyrocket it is at an all time low at the moment
and will have a very impressive comeback all next week with major promotions taking place including releases in over 35 Newletters to millions of Investors.
If I read that right, it means I should bet on a spam promotion. Point two:
Also a fax campaign will be launched on friday for great results next week inside sources tell us.
In othe words “Be sure to get in immediately” as various promotions will drive up the price of the stock.
And those promotions will say what? That additional spam mailings are planned the week after?
I wonder how hard it is to get a copywriting job like that and how much it pays.
