I keep receiving tons of emails like this
Subject: Quick question about your site...
I went through your website yesterday, I just wondered if youve done any search engine marketing yet this year. I am self employed doing that for various businesses for a number of years now, I feed my family doing it so I wont complain :-).
I first find out what your competitors have done that we havnt done yet and address those issues. Usually there are quite a few things, more social media involement, improving the number and quality of inbound links, on site content, video creation. With the videos, after I create a few for you, I can get those to rank very quickly for highly competitve keywords.
I use tools that most people dont know about and would like to use them for your site. Let me know if youd like more information or references, I have more than I know what to do with.
(Closing then with name and phone number.)
Now, I was wondering..is it considered SPAM?
To promote my marketing services to local businesses I now send sales letters, as well as door-to-door or cold calling.
I know it is not the best practice but I would like to try to send email to prospects,
contact them throw contact form on their website or on facebook messaging their fb-page.
The idea is to send targeted and crafted messages only.
Is there a legal way to reach your prospects, without being considered SPAM and doesn't ruin your reputation?
I read different versions and, with your help, I hope to clarify it once and for all.
Thanks a lot
Have a great week all
