How to Request a Backlink via Email That Gets Deleted Immediately
Hi <generic person>,
Thanks for reaching out via email, but for a variety of reasons, no thank you:
You reached out to an email address specifically used to request licensing images of mine rather than made any effort to find a more appropriate email address, contact link, or social media account which shows laziness and a shot-gun approach. I’m sure it works, just like most spam, if your outreach volume is big enough.
You didn’t even bother using my name in your greeting. IT IS PLASTERED ALL OVER MY PAGE.
You clearly have an interest in gaining a back link, spreading some sort of brand awareness, or social marketing yet not a single mention about what may be of benefit to me for hosting your infographic.
I looked over your site, and found nothing on it that would align with anything I write about, blog about, or care about.
Your approach was clearly undifferentiated, uninteresting, unpersonalized, and unappreciated.
