No Dave, you link selling shyster, I’m not interested. But thanks for asking.

Subject: Ref Content Placement Aug 2012


I have a name, it is Stuart McDonald, it is listed, beside my photo, on our homepage

I hope you do not mind me contacting you like this but I have just been on your site and found your posts really engaging.

Well I do actually. I post fairly rarely, so I’d love to know which ones you liked — especially as you don’t appear to know my name.

I was wondering if you would let me write a post for you?

No thanks.

I am looking to get my work placed on high-end sites such as yours and would be happy to write a unique article just for you.

Why thank you. Still no.

I can come up with a title – or if you have something that you would like me to cover I can work from a brief.

I bet you can. No I don’t sorry.

What’s in it for you, you are probably thinking?

Let me think. Probably nothing.

I place a sponsor in the post, which could take the form of a linked word to a reputable client relevant to the article.

Undoubtably a nofollowed, clearly marked paid-for link right?

Your free article would be 500 words or more in length and completely unique to you.


If you would like me to get an article started please just drop me a line.


I am constantly looking for partnerships, so if you like the first article I would love to place more with you.

I bet you are.

I look forward to hearing from you and speaking to you in the near future.

Thanks Dave, no need to contact us again.
