Automattic Marketing Lies

I used to complain about this when I worked there, but it must work as it continues.

“There are lies, damned lies and marketing speak”

Couple of days ago they sent out an email about a ‘flash sale’. Part of the copy was:

Attract more viewers, make more sales, share more content

If you upgrade will you attract more viewers? No.

If you upgrade will you make more sales? No.

If you upgrade can you share more content? No.

Three lies.

It was annoying when people paid and would ask in tickets or chat about what Marketing sent out and for me it just reads as spam. Unsubscribe? Could do, but then I’d miss out on these amazing offers!
