Why, oh, why? // PR gone wrong

My fellow bloggers might know that issue: I get tons of e-mails with the weirdest content. 95% of the time the stuff companies offer me, don't fit my life(style) at all. So I chose not to accept it. No, no giveaway on my blog for random stuff. My readers are special, and that's how the products offered on here should be. The company should fit me, and me and my personality should fit the company. Easy!

Anyways....

Last night I got an e-mail to my blog account. It wasn't an offer for a collaboration or anything. It was just a random e-mail telling me about a $50 gift card, "JUST" for me. Ummmm, ok. Not, I guess. 

Everything was fine until the moment I opened that e-mail and saw the pictures and stuff:



Scott. Disick. WTF? Do I look like someone needing something that is being presented by/hosted by/kissed butt by Scott Disick? Ummmm HECK NO! And I really don't understand how a company can pick this dude as a face of the brand? 

For me, this is a serious case of PR gone wrong. Like an overweight personal trainer trying to sell me some diet stuff. Not happening.

What's your favorite no-go when it comes to advertising and PR? Any examples?

But maybe YOUR company and MISS ANNI would a great match?

WANT TO SHARE SOME GOODIES?
I would be delighted to host a give-away on my blog featuring one of your products! I will do a featured post and randomly select a winner to receive the prize. Giveaways are always the most popular post to put on blogs - generating the most traffic.

WANT ME TO SPORT YOUR STUFF?
As a sponsor, if you would like to send me one of your products to show on my blog I would be more than happy to! I will list the item and cite it back to your business/blog/shop/ect. Again, these would only be things that would fit into my personal day-to-day style - and that I would love to wear! (Im not very picky, though!)

NEED AN AD?
I am a graphic designer. Just let me know and I will whip something up for you! Email me for rates.

  1. I know, right? And companies these days just mass-email all bloggers -- I have seen too many similar blog posts and giveaways from the same eyeglass company already!

  2. Ahahaha, Scott Disick. How random is that? It's kind of creepy actually.
