Tips from Metropolis on how to suck at email marketing

I got an email from Metropolis today. It came to an address I used when I joined their community, though I don’t remember opting-in to anything. At any rate, I opened it and was amazed at just how completely bad it was. Clumsily composed in plain text and littered with duplicate links, it looked more like a parody of an email newsletter, like someone’s farsighted 6-year old had been given an event calendar and a Palm Pilot and told to share the important bits with the Internet.

So bad was it, in fact, I’ve included it here. I figure with all of the useful articles out there on how to do email marketing right, the world could use one that illustrates how to do it really crap.

Capricine 2009 Summer & Autumn Collection

Our good friends at Spoilt Inc., a Netwise client and home to fashion lingerie brands Capricine and Gatez Moi, revealed their new new lineup for Summer and Autumn recently in Shibuya. We were lucky enough to be on-hand for the event and managed to come away with a few photos of the new collection. The Capricine lingerie brand is modeled on Marie Antoinette at the time of her marriage to the Dauphin of France, Louis-Auguste, and is divided among four gorgeous, enticing lines. Their products are available in stores around Japan and also online at the Capricine Web Shop.

WPtouch Me

Just discovered this and hot damn is it ever sweet! WPtouch is a theme package/plugin for WordPress that optimizes them for mobile devices like the iPhone and Android. Very fast, clean and cool. Rich control over look-and-feel and other options via a custom Settings screen. Easy to install and activate. What, other than, say, 1980 pop music videos, could be finer?
