My Email from Donald Trump Today

If this isn’t a briliant example of Trump marketing at its best, I dont know what is. All marketers can certainly learn from the following email I received this morning (i got it this morning. despite the afternoon time. A trick of spammers is to use a later time so it appears at the top of your webemail inbox which is for most people sorted by time received)

Subject: Can you think big

Hello, Donald Trump here.

I am searching for a few like-minded people to share my personal wealth building strategies with, and I want you to be one of the first to hear about it.

Please note, you are being extended a rare opportunity that can only be found on this web page. It is important that you read this now, as it is a limited-time offer.

Thanks Donald. A spam email from Trump University and you. What could be better…Oh wait, i know. The multiples of this email that I found in my inbox today.

Oh, BTW, where can I pick up Trump Vodka and how does it taste ?

  13. \”PLEASE\” forward this email to DONALD TRUMP PERSONALLY. My name is Emily Boucher from Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. God has directed me to contact Donald Trump, because Mr. Trump is a wonderful man and a very eager man in his field of business. I have been a born again Christian believer for almost 10 yrs now and I have sure had my share of up\’s and down\’s in life, but always staying on the straight and narrow path God has laid out before me. God wants to use Donald Trump to further His (God\’s) Kingdom through financial blessings—WHAT WE SOW-WE SHALL REAP a harvest of good or bad, depending on the seeds we have sown over a period of time. After all we are in a new season, Fall–HARVEST TIME!!! And I am more than ready to reap the beautiful harvest I have been sowing into God\’s Kingdom, but due to personal circumstances I am unable to financially do what God wantS me to do and that\’s where Mr. Donald Trump comes in—to help me further along God\’s Holy Kingdom. I am asking you Donald Trump to bless me with 10 MILLION DOLLORS and by God\’s Holy Word you shall reap your harvest to DOUBLE that amount or even more. This is not a hoax. believe me. God put me up to this. I\’ll give you my personal address: Mrs. Emily B Boucher
    27 Gordon Avenuw
    Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada
    P7A 7C7
    All I can do is to confirm to you what God told me to do and nothing more. But I\’m afraid IF you don\’t respond to GOD\’S REQUEST you will have to answer to God SOMEDAY. I\’m only doing what is required of me. Do you think this is easy for me to do? Well, no! But looking on the bright side of things, I always enjoy doing God\’s Holy Will in my life…Our Father Who Art In Heaven Your Kingdom Come Your Will Be Done On Earth As It Is In Heaven….you know the rest.
    I will be anxiously waiting to hear from you Mr. Trump!
    Sincerely,
    Emily B Boucher!

  14. Hi,

    My name is VINCENT aka Vinny, you either know me or know one of my great family members or friends in some way! This is NOT a gimmick letter this is real! I am 12 years and I would really appreciate it if you would take the time to please read my email.

    I am writing this letter to let you know about an exciting event in which I am participating with my soccer team on October 7th. The 4 v 4 Goal-A-Thon is an event that will take place at the grand opening of my soccer clubs new training complex. The funds donated by you or your company will be used ONLY to help me travel to soccer tournaments outside of the Dallas area, and for our new soccer fields. See I play for the Dallas Texans Soccer Club which is one of the top competitive soccer clubs in the United States. In the past 2 years, our teams have won more National Championships than any youth soccer club in the country!!

    My goal is to be the best soccer player & student that I can be, and playing for one of the top soccer clubs in the country is helping me to reach my goals. Reaching these goals requires a lot of my hard work on and off the soccer field. I am asking my family and friends to please support me by sponsoring me in our Goal-a-thon. A one-time donation will go directly to my team player account to support my travel, training fields and I am hoping to attend in the summer of 2008 a summer soccer camp out of the US and that can be very expensive. With your help I know I can achieve this.

    To make a tax deductible donation by credit card or check, please go to this online link: http://www.dallastexans.com/goalathon.php

    Thank you for taking the time to read about my exciting upcoming soccer year & thank you for your support.

    GO TEXANS!

    P.S. A little more about me. I am an A B student in school. I am one of the starters on my D1 Soccer team. I can play defense, mid-field and forward so where ever my coach says he needs me to go I do it and give 100%. If you have any questions please ask.

  15. Mark,

    I think you\’re being a bit silly with this whole Trump thing. You talk about how he can\’t leave you alone, but you post things like this to prove your point against him? How many spams go through the internet daily? Millions, if not billions — you should know of all people. So picking on Trump with a petty thing like this is a bit over the top, quite childish, and frankly, to the outside world (regular people like me) just works against you. Yeah, ok go ahead and censor this because it doesn\’t fit with what you \”approve\”…

    Regards,
    Anna

  16. Trump has built himself into a brand.. thats it.. he represents and IDEA.. people can be rich like him.. his name has value with ignorant people who have no idea he really has no assets nor real wealth. I feel that the Donald is purly driven by ego and does nothing to make his fellow people better.. he is nothing more then a new type of snake oil salesman.. god help the dumb people.

  19. I\’m not quite sure I can fit my feelings and thoughts into what my impressions are about Mr, Trump. I only wonder why all his plans have to be so grandeous, public, and help only those people he has to rub elbows with. Yes he may give to charity, but how much research, is \”HE\” personally involved in without one of his \”yes men\” saying \”good tax writeoff…or this will help your image\”. I just wish he had the true guts to PERSONALLY come visit the places run down, needing help, kids on the streets becauce theres no where to play. Our future is our children, my challenge to him….\”If anyone know how to get this to him\”………Is come down to where the real people live. Hang out for a day, have lunch, super, lay your head where some of OUR children have to…….. Brag about the BIG financial things goin on, but we can only imagine the sheets your child sleepson. Give someone in a lower class a chance to get somewhere, instead of the fake mongrels you\’ve \’FIRED,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

  20. I have an idea that would give Donald Trump a smile. He has many great ways to make money and after reading alot about his history I feel that he would have a great interest in my idea. You believe people can change their own lives well I agree and believe there is a way that anyone of any class can find a way to do this and be a millioniar in 2 years.This will only be discussed with him or written concent to legally talk about this idea to him through legal advise. Maybe you will call! Does this interest you? I am not hard to find, so track me down.

  22. I\’m glad you posted this. Sorry I didn\’t see it sooner. Trump has a great opportunity to make his unique, asynchronous, online University legit & profitable at the same time. He talks a lot about \”smart\” people and that he and all his family have gone to The University of Pennsylvania\’s Wharton School of Business. But he\’s going about his University in such a way that it\’s currently a laughing stock. Too bad. This is a good idea and could be accredited, even, through SUNY, The State University of NY since he lives there. I\’ve done this before in NY, could do it for him and make it work. It would be prestigious. I know how. But I don\’t think so. I live in Dallas.

    So if anyone wants to start up a prestigious, accredited online university, give me a shout.

  24. Just found your blog Mark……….and its a fine read. Thanks.

    Anyway,
    Spam emails from The Donald? What do you expect from a guy who gets people to buy Junk Bonds then dilutes them all with yet another \”financial restructure\”.

    Would be interesting to see how much real cash of his own that was free to buy Real-estate!

  25. Why is this guy sending emails and postcards to people?
    C’mon Don.
    I can’t take this guy seriously.

  26. Trump’s marketing is as traditional and old as his hair and his silly pink ties.

  27. Thanks for the spyware Mark… hey I’ll save you some time and post a blog with all of my spyware so you can click on it. Just want to return the favor!

  28. Trump isn’t about anything other than making money, and it doesn’t matter how tacky he is in doing it. It’s his schtick.

  29. The Apprentice LA blows and I liked The Benefactor. At least it was better than that Richard Branson train wreck. I’ll never forget Jenga for a million. That was good.

  30. Very interesting read Mark, I appreciate the insight. E-Mail marketing these days, can sometimes be a big pain. I made a few mistakes in the past, signing up for those “Get Rich” programs and whatnot. The Email Newsletter is free, but the consequenses are harsh. A swarm of spam emails have been sent to my inbox, and now I can’t delete them. One day my space will run out. That is no problem for me, since I have multiple e-mail accounts. This spam email is very funny, even more entertaining when it leads to a poorly designed page that has NOTHING to do with Donald Trump or his business teachings. Touche, email marketing has gone down the drain. And great advertisers who can use it correctly will still suffer lower conversion rates.

    Excellent Read,
    Josh

  31. I went to his “wealth seminar” earlier this year. I got a two for one special for $80 so I figured I’d check it out. That thing was the biggest convention of hucksters and snake oil salesmen I have ever seen in my life. What was even more shocking is the amount of people that were buying into it! Basically, I paid $80 bucks to have a line of hucksters peddle me their $800 packages that would make me “rich tomorrow”! They literally said this! I was actually kind of surprised that Donald Trump would put his name behind an event like this.

    Meanwhile, the year before I paid $20 to hear Mark Cuban speak and I consider it the best $20 I’ve ever spent in my life. I actually learned something from his lecture!

    There’s a guy in Fremont who took the course at Trump U., applied what he learned to his startup and now is getting sued by the Donald. It’s called “I Trumped The Trump”

  37. You may not want to hear this, but you and Trump have similar advertising… not to mention some of the most recognized REAL last names in Pop/Culture. You talk about your NBA fines being the best form of advertising. Although your tactics (in my view) are much more acceptable, Trump does whatever he needs to create a buzz… which in turn makes his name more and more recognizable. In the same breath, I would venture to say that 99.99% of NBA fans know Cuban and MAYBE their own teams owner, but couldn’t name any other name (MAYBE West). I would even bet the ones who know the Maloof name, only know of the Palm, not the Kings๐Ÿ™‚

  38. So everyone does understand that this is in NO way associated with Donald Trump or his organization. It is a spam technique by an affilate marketing company. When you click the link, it chooses one of the affiliates in the program and sends you to their sites. Every few clicks will take you to a different website that is promoting a “get rich quick” product.

    The sad part is that many people are fooled by these things and waste a lot of money on these bad products so the spammers will only continue to send these.

  39. Trump is a joke, he knows nothing about brand, and has a Vodka of his own that he has never tried before… The guy is a walking joke, and it is just a matter of time before the generation that appreciates him is gone. When will he get it?

  40. While the letter is really cheesy, this is an affiliate that sent this Mark. Trump U works with affiliate networks like the one that this one redirects through. This is used to expand their reach and drive sales and honestly, it works. Is it great for his brand, probably not! Does it make money, you better believe it.

  43. Mark…speaking of fellow billionaires…

    It is rare to be a billionaire in Texas without ties to oil, would you like to comment on your fellow Texas “without oil” billioaire taking his company back over in Round Rock?

  44. Well I think it’s a little bit crazy that Donald Trump is reaching out to the public to pick up 75$ at a time, I mean I thought he was some kind of business genius. It almost seems wrong to grab money from people who don’t have a lot to begin with to increase ones own wealth. I mean once we buy those videos, what else is there to do to help us? Trump will take proceeds from that and merely reinvest it in what he thinks is the next big thing. I don’t think that he is such a great person in the end. He has made billions, but has also lost billions. Now what about a guy such as Warren Buffett. I think that’s a very successful guy.

    About the Trump brand, I was shopping at TJ Maxx to find some sweet deals on clothes and I saw that the associates were loading up the Trump ties onto racks because they did not sell full or even half price at regular department stores. I mean wow Trump, that must have been your goal from the start, to sell ties at 70% off retail…

    No one can teach you hard work from watching a simple video. This stuff has to come within the self. Great corner backs don’t just become awesome. They started going to summer weight lifting program at the nearest high school when they were in 7th grade to become the biggest the fastest and the strongest. People in Indonesia who can’t make a regular living, they sell pirated videos on street corners to feed their whole family. Now that’s motivation and dedication. And people at my school boast their 17,000 song library on iTunes (300 songs coming from actual albums) and then write about how wrong the trading of pirated materials is wrong for their Contemporary Moral Issues classes.

  45. Why can’t Trump get a suit like Matthew Lesko, with some Trump$ logo instead of the question mark, and hawk this stuff latenight? That would be cool! He could have a hand in the shape of his when he “fires” someone. I wonder if this idea will get me on the Apprentice? I have thousands of ideas like that, I am sure that DT would love to have me on his team!

  46. I let trump know he got pwned by Mark Cuban… but that might be the fanboy in me. My bad.

    Comment by Matt Jones -

  47. Hi Mark,

    i am simply trying to bring to your attention an idea that’s been kicking around a sports fan forum. This is in regards to the NBA All-Star weekend. It has become an incredibly boring event for the tv viewers, and the dunk contest has become a joke. in order to bring back some of the excitement, here’s an idea which we hope you will endorse.

    a tournament style 1-on-1 contest. it could be a one or two day event, starting with 8 or 16 players, which means the champion would need to win 3 or 4 matches. it wouldn’t be that bad for the players, even if the matches are 10 minutes long, because they are spread over a long period.

    imagine the matchups for Kobe vs. KG, Vince Carter vs. LeBron, Dwayne Wade vs. Carmelo. This could be both exciting and meaningful (like the dunk contest used to be).

    For your pleasure, here’s the link to the discussion.

  50. Trump vodka sucks.. it’s like well and at bar on lower greenville… boycoot grey goose.. drink belvedere!!

    Comment by paisley -

  51. Okay, I will agree that a reasonable agrument can be made that one cannot have too much money. Having said that, however, doesn’t it seem more than a bit unusual that a man who is worth “billions” needs to resort to late night style get-rich-quick schemes?

    I can’t imagine his real estate brand won’t suffer at some point in the near future because of the rest of his very cheap hoopla. The name Trump is soon to be associated with other fine American brands like: Kmart, RadioShack and Ford.

  52. Now that’s PRICELESS….. You mean people actually sign up for that course, and buy those tapes & CD’s… LOL

    Trump University -you can’t be serious. I guess theres a fool born everyday.

    And you know what they say about a fool and his money….

    So, if I buy now, in the next 30 minutes, do I get a free set of Ginsu Knives or a replica Donald Trump hair piece?

  54. Best site ever!! I followed your link to see what happened, and when I saw that it was lame, I clicked the close window box, and some crazy sort of pop-up came on and tried to solicit me. I figured it was some sort of auto-response thing, so I decided to have some fun. The transcript is as follows. Enjoy!

  55. Mark, are you sure you didn’t opt in for this?

    Actually, this is not Trump, but an affilate, and in their privacy policy it seems they are sharing information with other List Management companies. You’re probably seeing a variety of offers who’s advertisers are paying email vendors on a CPA (Cost Per Aquisition) basis to get sign ups, registrations, etc. If Trump is paying this affilate more then $1.50 for full name and email address completion he is getting ripped off.

    Below is the company privacy policy mailing address used to opt out of this offer:

    Trump U Today
    Attn.: Privacy Department
    109 East 17th Street Suite 22
    Cheyenne, WY 82001

    If Trump does have an office in Cheyenee WY then I might be wrong with above..

  56. This reminds me of all the spam I get from those UK-based “companies” that come across my resume on Monster/HotJobs/CareerBuilder offering me countless amounts of money for my bank account so they can transfer money. Trump’s “get rich” schemes rank right up there in scams only morons would fall for.

    Comment by Wendi -

  57. I think it is funny you get the same crappy email spam that I do. I don’t know if it is a good thing we are getting the same spam. I will take it as a compliment. I am sure you will take it hard that we are on the same lists.

    Comment by Mike Walker -

  58. Trump should be embarrased , pissed off , and apologizing for this. I clicked on the link and read the page.
    -“but first let me warn you , this is an exclusive limited time offer”
    You have got to be kidding with me. Whats worse is that the site won’t allow you to close , and takes you to different screens. It even asked me if “I really wanted to leave” , Trump owes me an apology now. That sunovabitch.

  59. Talk about clueless marketing tactics. It’s like getting Viagra spam… when you’re a girl.

    Comment by Rebeccalee Coventry -

  60. You know Mark, maybe Mr. Trump is suffering from some kind of unknown brain virus that is robbing him of common sense. We should all be more sympathetic.

    I wonder if Rosie got an invite?

    Comment by David -

  64. Wow. And I feel privileged to have received the snail mail version of the same. Is he hard up for cash? Or, are people really stupid enough to think that listening to DT will make them rich?

  65. yep, an affiliate surely, but I’ve gotten the spam before too lol

  66. OMG… this is freaking hilarious. Mark, this is a case study in how targeted email marketing goes way wrong. LMAO. Keep up the good work pointing out the stupidity on the 3rd rock from the sun.

  67. This whole thing smells like a scam. TrumpUToday.com? It’s a private registration and the site looks like a fake. Trump’s actual “Trump University” site is at http://www.trumpuniversity.com.

    Sounds like Mark may have been “Trumped” by some scammer looking for their 15 minutes.

    Brilliant.

    Comment by Smells Fishy -

  68. “You are almost forced to chat w/ sales associates when closing the page. I can’t believe people agree to pitch this scam”

    Umm I’m pretty sure that’s a bot, and not an actual person. Too bad, I intended on having a little bit of fun at the expense of some Trump University “representatives”.

    Comment by Justin W. -

  69. FWIW, the domain salesforcemgt.com is registered to the address of 545 Eighth Ave #401 in NYC, which address is claimed by this fellow: http://michael.bacarella.com/

    Who knows, maybe this guy is also spamming Trump with a hundred emails from “you”, Mark!

    Comment by KJP -

  70. I always wonder when I see Donald Trump on those late night infomercials for his get-rich-quick schemes whether he’s a complete phony. Spam and late night infomercials…wow. Why don’t more people in the mainstream media pick up on how corny this guy is?

    Comment by david -

  71. I tried to leave the page and I got this fake IM message from “Susan” that wouldn’t stop. I must admit, I was a little creeped out.

  72. “Oh, BTW, where can I pick up Trump Vodka and how does it taste ?”

    About as watered down as the Trump brand

  74. Just so you know, after your post you have ‘Comments [0]’. It looks like there is more than 0 comments on this post…

    Donald is a chump, btw.

  75. Reading comment #5 about the PS. I had to post it here. Pretty funny:
    “I have intentionally put a time limit on this offer. Why? Because one of the prime determinants of success in life and business is the ability to make quick, definite decisions. And I’ll be blunt: If you cannot or will not respond to this offer before the deadline, this package is not for you.”

    Can I just translate this entire advertisement into this cliche?
    “Send me your money” – Donald

    what a bore!

  76. I especially enjoyed the PS at the bottom of the linked page. Just read it, trust me. My stomach hurts from laughing.

    Comment by Brian Yennie -

  77. Trump is such a class act. “only $76 to learn my secrets”. what a joke. step #1 is inherit a business.

    Of course that email is probably from an affiliate that should hear “you’re fired” for spamming other’s emails.

    Comment by ac bookie -

  78. Though how to get your hands on Trumps e-mail distribution list is probably worth looking into…

    Comment by Andrew -

  79. Hilarious! Guess he must have thought you weren’t already rich enough. He is always boasting about how he’s richer than you and has better ratings than you had, but just like some tech companies out there… all the money in the world won’t buy you innovation or style.

    I think you should make a comment on his blog about this. Then again he’ll probably threaten to “sue your ass”.
