Not sure if this was an in-house job or external. Doesn’t really make a whole lot of difference.

Murrays Europcar Spamming Ebay

Can’t think of any way this couldn’t be considered spam?

From the Ebay listing:

Please Note: This is not an auction for a free car hire in Ireland, or to purchase or receive a free Sat Nav system, but it is a promotional offer from Murray’s Europcar for a free Sat Nav rental when booking your cheap car rental in Ireland.

Should you wish to bid on this offer, please contact seller and your request / reservation will be made.

  2. Easy-peasy – sign up, list your (non-existent) products, and spam away.

    Is it effective? I doubt it. But then again just one conversion and all the spam has paid for itself many times over.

    Is it spam? IMO yes. That’s an opinion mind, and some will see it as perfectly acceptable.
