Hi….. Pinky,

Thanks for your email suggesting I use you to help build an online presence.

I’ll be honest, your email was full of the most awful, bawdy colours. In fact it was so badly littered with random highlights it made it quite difficult to read.

I wouldn’t be confident that someone who uses that as an introduction email would be competent enough to help with ANYONES online presence in any way. Most people would have seen the shambolic layout of your email and wished something could instantly gouge out their eyes.

I think I have a slight headache after just glancing at it. God knows if anyone has managed to get through the full thing in its entirety. Hopefully most peoples minds would have realised the distress it caused, relented and put their bodies into a self induced coma purely for safety.

Do you do this as a business? Do you get paid to make emails look like this?

Do let me know – I’m intrigued!

Hi Pinky.

Thanks for your email.

I can see that you have taken my advice and amended the colour scheme of your emails. This is very appreciated. It makes your emails far easier to read and they now look a lot more professional. Well done!

I also want to take a moment to apologise to you. I might have gone a bit too far when I said about having eyes removed. Sorry about that. The colour scheme on your previous email WAS bad, but not THAT bad. Again, sorry.

As you have obviously taken the advice I gave you, which I think we both agree will help benefit your business, I have attached an invoice for the advisory service I provided.

I request prompt payment within 7 days.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Craig Anderson.
