Here at Creative Content Company we are often sent spam emails by businesses. Other times we are sent emails by our clients querying if this is a real service. Some clients email us with concerns as the email says that they are not posting on social media or new content isn’t being added. Our clients are concerned as this is a service we do for them.
However, very often this email is a spam. We get the emails ourselves saying we are not uploading fresh content or posting on social media. Actually we are posting on social media around 5 times a day. We also upload a new blog post every other day. This is definitely enough, if not more than enough!
So, how can you tell if you have received a spam email for an audit report?
Two tell tale signs early on are if you find the email in your spam email box instead of your main email box. Secondly, if you have Gmail you will have a note from Google saying that many messages from this sender are indentified as spam by other receivers.
Here is an example of a recent spam email for an audit report;
Dear Business Owner of creativecontent.company
You can’t expect your website to increase your revenue with so many errors. Many business owners get puzzled as their website isn’t performing well, while others’ are flourishing. That’s unfortunate, but not your fortune!
Now, I will show you the number of broken links, pages that returned 4XX status code upon request, images with no ALT text, pages with no meta description tag, not having a unique meta description, having a too-long title, etc.found in your website. Too many issues to worry about!
If this is something you are interested in, then allow me to send you a no-obligation Audit Report.
The fact that it says Business Owner of your website shows that minimal research has been done. This is especially the fact when the email is sent to a named person, in this case Hazel, our business owner. Hazel is clearly on our website as the business owner. Viewing the about page will quickly show you this and the research is done.
However, as a spam email for an audit report, it’s a numbers game. Finding people’s names slows down the process. It is quicker to set up a program that inserts website address.
There will often be sentences that don’t quite make sense or read right. I this email for example it is “That’s unfortunate, but not your fortune!”. These spam emails are often written by someone that is overseas, which is where spam emails will often come from.
If you have concerns about your website and want to check that you don‘t have this issue chat to your website designer, or we can recommend a web designer for you to chat to. They can then check your website and let you know if these are real issues and if they are affecting your business.
