Just say thanks

17 August 2009

I get a lot of e-mail from wannabe copywriters. This is OK, leaving aside the fact that their window-shopping has cost me about £1.55 on Adwords.

I have to confess, though, that I did go through a period of sending this automatic reply: ‘Thank you for your request. I’m afraid I no longer offer copywriting advice as it is rarely acknowledged. Apologies if you were among the 5% who would have thanked me.’

Nowadays, I’m a bit less grumpy. Or perhaps I just get a better class of visitor to my site. Anyway, I had a lovely e-mail from Kate, a local-paper journalist, today, who wants to cross over from the dark side. We had a nice e-mail exchange and I’m going to help her with some copy samples.

See, I don’t bite. You just need to be polite.
