I use a lot of Google tools. Google Docs. Gmail. Google Calendar. Google Earth. Picasa. Google EarWax Remover. (OK, I made that one up.)
And of course AdWords.
So don’t get me wrong – I think Google makes some of the best stuff on the Internet. And most of it’s free (actually, subsidized by AdWords). So I’m sharing the screenshot below in amused fondness.
Get it? Google email service, Gmail, decided that the official Google AdWords Blog email, to which I subscribe, is SPAM!
That’s pretty hilarious, for my money.
The moral, if there is one: don’t feel too bad when your business does stupid things. You have good company. It’s more important to be personable than perfect. It’s more important to connect with your customers on an emotional level than to execute flawlessly.
