Ignorance in marketing...


Ok, I usually save the email posts for Greeneyes coz she does such a good job.. but... I felt the need to share

Going through my morning pile of spam in the old inbox I recieved a 'HOTCOUPONALERT' from SmartSource.com for o.b. Tampons of all things. Well normally like everyone else, I just delete it and go on to the next little piece of trash.. NOT THIS TIME! I felt inclined to replay with a little note, as follows...

I really appreciate the coupon, but wouldn't it be better to send me a coupon for ummmm... Preperation-H if you feel that I'm bleeding down there? I mean really people.. what use does a single man have for tampons?

Note to management... Re-evaluate the marketing staff.

It will be interesting to see if I get a replay back. Seriously though, with all the marketing research these companies bo now a days, what were they thinking? It seems to me that with a name like 'SmartSource' an IQ test would be involved in the hiring process some where, at least they should have the ability to destinguish the difference from products for men, women, or neuter. I suppose I could be judging them too harshly, and maybe, just maybe they were in a budget crunch and could only afford to hire the ones that flunked the IQ Test. Yeah, that must be what happened.. oh well..

Until next time... huggs all!
