The Origin of Spam

For those of you that don’t know, the word SPAM on the Internet evolved from the 1970 sketch comedy routine by Monty Python titled…Spam.  It shows a diner where anything and everything ordered came with SPAM, Much to the chagrin of Hormel Foods, maker of the canned “Shoulder Pork and hAM”/”SPiced hAM” luncheon meat.

Immitter recently went live with a new distribution feature that delivers our TOP artists on a weekly basis to our entire mailing list of 1K plus subscribers.  But of course, this is not without one glaring hitch, we’ve noticed our email ending up in the Junk mail, we are now SPAM!

Seth Godin, talks a lot about the idea of Permission marketing and only delivering relevant timely messages to those few that actually are looking forward to receiving them.  If this is you, we urge you to dig through your junk mail and set us free.  Let your email provider know that THIS IS NOT SPAM!

We only deliver our weekly email to those of you who have subscribed to Immitter in one form or another and by no means do we champion or relish in spam.

If you’re not interested in receiving our weekly update, we’ve provided a link in the email to allow you to easily unsubscribe.

That being said.

We implore you to please take some time to make sure that you are receiving our weekly update in your inbox, the thousand + artists that we represent would really appreciate it – And so would we.

As for SPAM, lets take a look at where it alllll started.  I hope you enjoy the history lesson.
