Autoreply: Tanga will bet you a pizza

Mail icon

They’re arguably the worst thing that ever happened to mankind – auto replies. Join my fight to get rid of unremarkable out-of-office replies and other auto replies. To help, I’ve collected some great positive exceptions, starting with the one below. Let’s turn automatic into automagic.

I have gotten my fair share of cold sales calls and cold sales mails. So in this tsunami of horrible irrelevant spam, it can be great to find a gem. There is where Tanga will bet you a pizza comes in. Apparently, they have done their homework and know what they can spend for a lead. In this case, they can offer a pizza voucher for everyone that sends them shipping rates that are lower than theirs.

Hi there,

I bet I can save you money on your outbound shipping rates. And… If I can’t, I will buy you a pizza. Here’s why: Because is one of the world’s largest US marketplaces, we have two things going for us:
1. We work with gazillions of vendors.
2. We can pool our combined volume together and get amazing UPS, FedEx, USPS, and DHL rates.

That’s where the pizza comes in Because of those combined rates, we can pass along those shipping rates to our partners. There’s a dang good chance we can save you up to 35% on your existing shipping methods. So…want to take me up on the bet? Here’s the deal. Reply and tell me:
a) how many packages you ship each business day, and…
b) the average weight of your most common shipment, and…
c) what carrier are you shipping most with now?

I will do a quick rate check and send you a sample of our rates. If my rates aren’t lower than what you currently pay, I’ll send you a gift card good for a free pizza (no anchovies). Looking forward to hearing from you
