Fun in my inbox

Dear Deb,

I'm hoping you'll be part of something special here at MediaPost. We’re putting together a new ad campaign to promote our newsletters, and I’d love to feature you.

The campaign centers on our readers. We’re looking to profile MediaPost members like yourself – to show the high-level quality of subscribers to our newsletters. You'd be perfect for one of our ads.

We’re in the early stages, but we’re moving very quickly. If you’re interested, I’d be looking for the following…

* A photo of you
* Your title
* A short testimonial about your favorite MediaPost Newsletter (Media Daily News, Email Insider, Online Media Daily, TV Watch, etc.)

Feel free to reply to this email with your info.

Best,
Rob

McEvil? Are you joking me? (apparently the y is silent)
I feel so special. So singled out.
The sign of a mass communiqué - no phone number dood. I'm the kind of person who prefers phone over email. Let's you fire some quick questions and clarify those answers in double time. Much more efficient.
Still, can't wait to see the swarms of bloggers desperate for the self promotion. They'll find a way to wrangle their URL into the piece.

Thanks Rob. Keep 'em coming.
