The letter, in the excitable tone of a Reader's Digest correspondence, promised "£50 in FREE advertising!" to the holder. The person it was addressed to had their name spelt wrong and was given the wrong marital status and an incorrect job title. We've had more sophisticated door-drops from the local pizza house. The attendees at a recent ISBA lunch might empathise. Marketers there got the Facebook treatment in the form of a speech from the managing director, Joanna Shields. We hear she found an infinite number of ways to say precisely nothing. Needless to say, she got no "likes".
Facebook is cool, isn't it? Not so, judging from some of its direct marketing that arrived at Campaign this week.
