Really I am no Scrooge but sending me 3-5 emails a day is just well, stalker like!
I think Santa is adorable don’t get me wrong but his marketing surrogates are out of control! Maybe it is the aftermath of the recent contentious presidential election with tons of emails from my candidates or political party that I thought my email inbox would now be less full? Unfortunately Santa is filling my email inbox.
I decided to take things into my own hands and like many people young and old I chose to write Santa a letter. Here is my letter to the big guy.
I am sorry to say I have marked your correspondence to me as spam. I didn’t want to do it Santa. 3-5 emails per day are just not an acceptable way to get me to buy something from you. I thought you were in the business Dear Santa of giving!
I understand out of the box marketing Santa but I really think if you continue with this campaign you may have some future bad PR issues. Who wants an aggressive Santa? Who wants a stalking Santa?
Here are my 5 non-stalker like suggestions:
Write your own travel blog
Have Mrs. Claus write a food blog with recipes for the holidays
Have one of the elves write a toy blog, what’s hot what’s not
Have Rudolph set up an Instagram account with frolicking reindeer game pictures
Link all the blogs together and build your mailing list from those who REALLY sign up
I hope you find my tips helpful and I wish you Santa the merriest of holidays.
Ho Ho Ho,
Are you being spammed by Santa? What are your suggestions?
