If you have received an email that has the subject line About, then your business name, then you need to have a read of this blog post. Don’t worry. It is nothing serious, it is just a spam email and in this blog post we will help you understand why, and what to look out for to spot spam emails in the future.

The email will look something like this, but with your website address, instead of ours.

Hi there,

I noticed something interesting while going through your website, creativecontent.companyIt’s apparent that you have used Adwords marketing to promote your business in the past, however your website does see some organic search traffic here and there.

Now, I believe I can help increase that portion of organic traffic significantly, at creativecontent.companyI believe you would like to come top on searches for keywords related to: creativecontent.company … I found a number of SEO issues such as broken links, page speed issue, HTML validation errors, images with no ALT text on your website, that’s stopping you from getting that traffic.

How about I fix those, and also promote you through engaging content on relevant places on the web (read, social media).I guarantee you will see a drastic change in your search ranking and traffic once these issues are fixed. Also, this is one time, so no paying adwords every month.Is this something you are interested in?

If yes, please allow me to send you a no obligation audit report and quote.Hoping to hear from you and take this partnership ahead.

Best Regards,Louis Parker| Digital Marketing Specialist………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

PS 1: Please answer to our email with “Interested” or “Not Interested” so that we will know the status of your inquiry and act accordingly. If you are interested then I will send more details on our “corporate identity”, “company profile”, “why you should choose us?”, “Price list”, “money back guarantee”. 

Firstly, here at Creative Content Company we have never used Adwords for marketing. Everything we do is organic, because that is the service that we offer to our clients and target audience. So, straight away, we can assure you this is a spam email with little or no research done into the business they are contacting.

The email informs me that I would like to be found for keywords relating to Creative Content Company; again this is not the case. I would like to be found for things like social media management, newsletter content, blogging and similar. It is good to be found for your company name, but that is only for people that know your business already, not people looking for what you offer. What if your company name was JSD Leaks? If you were plumbers you’d want to be found on Google for plumbing, not your company name.

If you receive an email like this and you’re not sure if it is spam or not then please feel free to forward it to us or contact us directly and we will be happy to help you out. If you want to improve the SEO of your website we can help with that too with SEO friendly website content and SEO friendly blog posts.
