    I haven't given back to BHW in a while so I thought I would let this little nugget loose to celebrate another epic months of earnings for yours truly.

    I present to you, The Jerk Method. Other variations may be called The Retard Method, The Ditz Method, The Redneck Method, and so on.

    The basic gist of this method is merely incorporating it into whatever you are currently doing. The idea is, creating a fully believable {Jerk|retard|Ditz|Redneck|Etc} personality, and 'being' that personality in your email replies / mailings. The thought behind this is that you will set yourself apart from he crowd. Think about it.

    Your typical spam post is "OMG, I just found the most awesome site! You have to check it out! Here's the link hxxp://epicfailmarketing.info"

    Replace that with "Hey douchebag! When you are done celebrating your team's crappy season, take a look at this site. Trust me you won't be any worse for the wear. It's not like you get any lower once you've hit rock bottom."

    Now...yes, it is really rude. It might even offend someone. But the point is, it makes someone stop and go "WTF??". They might just be intrigued enough to click the damn link.

    It's the same reason some of us like Andrew Dice Clay. He's not really funny, instead is very offensive and you watch because you just want to see what the hell he's gonna say next. Use this kind of psychology in your marketing efforts. You WILL appeal to a different demographic.

    Obviously this can be twisted to any strange personality. My personal favorite is jerk, but can also be very effective with redneck, jock, ditz, slob, cynic, intellectual, and even sailor-mouthed roughneck.

    Enjoy.

    I'd agree its a good concept and will grab peoples attention. Its a way to be unique. Rebel. Make sure to include at the end "Until then fuck you :thefingerSee you on the other side"

    They talk about this in The Rich Jerk. The key is to get an emotional response.

    You can also send them to a "complaint page" which has a couple of upsells on it. Why not? =D
