McSpamburgers

Posted by Bonnie / on 02/12/2009 / 0 Comments

I just got a McSpamburger in my email.  I a darned sure I never subscribed to the McDonald's newsletter.  I really abhor their food.

Curious, I decided to see what in the world anyone would ever want to know that they didn't know about a McDonald's hamburger.  So, I admit it.  I clicked.

The site was cute with a large graphic of a hamburger in the middle.  There were some links.  I clicked on one which then took me to a warning page that I was about to leave the McDonald's site and they wouldn't be held responsible for the results.  ??????

This took me to the Facebook page of one of their featured hamburgers.  A hamburger with a Facebook page.   hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

I was there treated to some replays of their tv commercials.  Good one.  Brilliant.  Not.

Guess what?  I am still not going to eat at McDonald's today or any day unless it is the only food available for many miles.

So they spent thousands of dollars on a web design team and I can't for the life of me see how it will get them a single additional customer.

Waste of their time, my time, but hopefully not your time.  The marketing message?  SPAM doesn't work.  Not everyone needs a website.  Just because you promote it on the internet doesn't mean it will help...especially if the promotion is lame to begin with about something we don't want to care about.
