Email Blast-A-Palooza

July 27, 2009

This post is dedicated to my friend and colleague @djwaldow who hates the term email blast. Heck..any self respecting email marketer hates these words, so I dedicate it to all of you as well.  This post will break the World Record for using the phrase “email blast” in one email marketing blog post.

    Nicely done Andrew! You missed, or perhaps felt it was too obvious to mention – but the one I hear perhaps most often is “eblast”.

    You can also double your references above by using the dictionary correct, but industry un-preferred spelling of email by adding the hyphen, as in:

    “We have to get that e-mail blast out today.”

    BTW, do you know of any really good email lists of dentists that I can buy?

    @djwaldow: duuuuuuude.

    @LorenMcDonald Complete oversight on my part on eBlast…must have been when I was laughing so hard writing this post that it slipped my mind. You other suggestion is warranted and will perhaps cause me to do a follow up post in the future to try and break the record again.

    Blast on fellas.

    LOL! Great post!

    However, I found one mistake: the Dutch translation of email blast is definitely not “email hoogovens”. Hoogovens are blast furnaces – and have nothing whatsoever to do with email marketing :-)))

    I don’t even think there is a dutch word for email blast 🙂

    @Tamara – Blame the translation on Google translate. 🙂

    That was a blast. Thanks.

    Hahaha,

    I would like to add eFart and eExplosion to the list.

    Did some thinking on email hoogovens and I think we don’t use any specific term in dutch for that. Nope, we don’t
