Would Murketing.com be interested in a murketing campaign?

Hello!

I am working at a marketing firm, and we are doing an on line campaign for one of our clients that has an on line printing company. I found your site! Bravo the content and pictures are truly inspiring, it makes me want to go home and get crafty! I thought that perhaps your site would be a great place to get a link to my clients site on Murketing.

I know it may not be something that you have done or considered in that past; using your site for advertising but I think that this would benefit both my client and yourself. I will be offering you monetary compensation to host a link. I hope that we can work something out! I can answer any questions you may have. Let me know what you think. Thanks in advance!
Cheers, [redacted]

You’re welcome!

Wow! This is hilarious – working for online marketing firms for the last several years I have not only written several such emails to sites that would greatly harness some power on search engines, but have also failed. However, never in such a tremendous way :)

This is one of the worst attempts at link building I have ever seen – thanks for sharing… and for omitting a link to that most likely awful site.
