Look at this crap email asking me to pay $1,500 for the privilege of (allegedly) putting free samples into the hands of the rich and famous!
So many awesome phrases used in one email, I can’t hardly stand it: “our celebrity friends,” “hot, cool and
useful products,” “gatekeepers,” “celebrity ambassadors for the environmental movement,” “the Entertainment Industry,” “Valuable editorial angle,” “invaluable networking opportunities with Press, Agents, Publicists and Stylists,” (my dream in life has always been to have any kind of networking opportunity—invaluable or not—with a Stylist with a capital S), and, of course, “Synergy of being grouped with a larger value gift assortment.”
As a matter of fact, I am going to change the name of this blog to “Synergy of Being Grouped with a Larger Value Gift Assortment.”
(Also, I Googled this person, and she is apparently not British. So what’s up with “favourite,” “endeavour,” etc? Her bio does include one clue: “Jeanne’s interest in sporting art was fostered at a young age, having been raised in an equestrian environment.” Horse freaks are always stuck-up like that, don’t you think? Ah, to have been “raised in an equestrian environment”…)

Getting your product into a star’s
hands can be a tricky endeavour. They
have many gatekeepers who censor
what they see and hear. Because of
our industry reputation, contacts with
talent representatives and direct
access to celebrities, the chances of
your product being used by these
celebrities is exponentially higher
than a mailing you might do on your
own to a random point of contact in
the person’s entourage.
