Jamie Harrison’s creative email
I donated to the campaign of Jamie Harrison, hoping that he could rid us of Lindsey Graham, Senator from South Carolina.
Harrison raised a record amount of money and I swear he used most of it to send me email requests for donations!
I’m posting this because I’m genuinely impressed at the creativity of the person writing his email messages. I’ve tried to collect some of the different names he uses (they are all from email@example.com):
I was most impressed with this email:
Notice that they’ve made the name field look as if there are two conversations, the first one from me to Harrison: me, Jaime (2). This successfully tricked me into wondering, “Did I send email to Jaime Harrison? Let me go look.”
Very, very clever trick. You can see a similar trick highlighted in the first image above. Granted, I’m not U.S. (sorry for the pun).
