“Hi (insert merge mail name here), how are you? I hope this email finds you well.”
Firstly, can an email find a person?
Secondly, so what if it finds you well?
Thirdly, should I reply “Oh I’m so hoop-dee-dooey happy to hear from you” or “I’m so sick of life, why do you torment me with your emails?”
To all you PR people who use this email line to start off your PR pitch, for goodness sake, can stop or not? Get to the point, don’t ask illogical and insincere questions you are not prepared to hear the answers to.
And yes, there is more than one person who uses this.
