Dear (expletive) Amazon: Sometimes I’m just searching for information. I don’t want to buy your $#%^!
Have you ever noticed that the search terms you use in a web search reappear in marketing emails from Amazon.com? How they think this is a good strategy is beyond me. If I wanted to buy a product, I would search for that product on a shopping site (and probably not Amazon, esp. after their emails). If I need information, I don’t want to be bombarded with ads about related products. And when I’ve just bought a product from Amazon or somewhere else, odds are that I don’t want another one, nor will I appreciate the company that keeps trying to sell me more.
Enough said! (I did promise a short rant…)
