I got an email with the subject "Work Problem" today.
Check this out...
Hey, I hate to be the one but when people
continueto talk about your weight issue,
we'll it just disgustsme. Whether you know
it by now, people are always chattering
about one another at work but you come up
morethan enough. I wasn't the happiest or
best fit up until a year ago or so but that
changed. Thanks to my dam brother-in-law.
Anyhow, it was for the best. What I am
saying is you need to do something and I
was saved a year ago and maybe I can make
the same difference. Try this stuff out,
I took it on the idea it's just more junk
but it worked great. I see more positive
reviews on it nowadays and makes me feel
even better. So, I am encouraging a change,
not only in the chatter around here but in
-Anonymous for now
(using an anonymous email website to send this btw)
When it helps/works just send a memo with the name "Angel"
in it. Then you can take me out to lunch to thank you.
This is genius. I don't know how many people will fall for it, but it certainly gets those who are dealing with weight issues thinking about things.
"Well, it sounds like spam, but what if it's real?"
I believe in "right livelihood" and honesty is important to me when selling something. The concept of this email is something that can easily be incorporated into an upfront sales message though. People do talk about other people and it's not always something positive. Everybody knows this, but it's an emotional trigger that bringing up in your sales copy might just help you get the sale.
