Attention PR/Media Relations Pros: Your Emails Are Now Spam!




Hopefully that headline got your attention.

This is not some bizarre court ruling that’s going to make it impossible for you to send out media pitches and press releases, it’s a policy update from Marketing Pilgrim.

As of today, any press release, media advisory, or “we think your readers will like this” emails will be marked as spam, if they are sent to andy AT marketingpil…com.

Sound harsh? Well, you should see my inbox!

I’ve tried replying with the correct method of contacting us, and we even have a news tips page for your submissions. None of that seems to be getting through.

So, this is the one and only time we’ll tell you that you should update your records to send all of the above type emails to editor AT marketingpilgrim.com.

Get that? Good! Cos, while we do want to hear from you, sending them to my email address will simply result in a “Report Spam” mouse click.

Cheers!
