Q the Eye/11.03.12

Dear LakeCountyEye,

Who do I contact about a product placement? I understand that your blog is Lake County's premier destination for marketing my political goods or services from within a neutral, embedded context. Furthermore can you immediately send a rate card, and should I act now before it's too late?

Right you are. According to Wikipedia ...
Product placement, or embedded marketing, is a form of advertisement, where branded goods or services are placed in a context usually devoid of ads, such as movies, music videos, the story line of television shows, or news programs. Traditionally the product placement is not disclosed at the time that the good or service is featured.

The election is Tuesday and it couldn't be closer in Illinois. A razor-thin statistical dead-heat is all that separates Obama from Romney. This means you have only 3 days left to see your message discretely embedded alongside your LakeCountyEye's non-stop live-blogging of the 2012 Election.

To make things easy, just fill out this easy-to-fill-out form:
Dearest Beloved,
Fellow Blogger,
Hello Barney,
I am Mrs. Zaniab Al-Kharafi from Nigeria. A widow to late Nasser Al-Kharafi. I am decided to donate what I have to charity through you. You may be wondering why I chose you. But someone has to be chosen.
I discovered your website a few months ago and have grown to be a big fan. I look forward to reading it every day.
I've been enjoying reading your blog, Lake County Eye. It has a wealth of high quality (and often humorous) insight into local politics and national politics with a local angle.
I have been touched to donate from what I have inherited from my late husband to charity for the good work of humanity, rather than allow my in-laws who neglected me after my husbands death. At the moment I cannot take any telephone calls, due to the fact that my in-laws are around me, monitoring to know if I still have any of my husbands property.
I am writing because I can help you attract the volume of traffic that your website deserves. No matter what you are selling, I know how to send targeted visitors to your website!
Solid Color Neckties, a national tie retailer based in Mundelein is attempting to predict the election by tracking tie purchases on their website. They're offering Republican red ties, Democrat blue ties, and "Compromise" red and blue striped ties. Their website includes an interactive US map that shows a breakdown of tie purchases by state.
If you can sincerely use this fund for charity then I will wait for your reply. Only reply if you can receive this fund and use it for charity.
This software is perfect for bringing real traffic to your site... even if... it's an affiliate link where you have no control over the website content! Contact me immediately for full details.
As a blog specializing in national and local Lake County politics, I couldn't help but think this would be a light-hearted, entertaining and related link to include on your site. With its local angle, I think it's an interesting little project your readers will get kick out of:

Have a great day and I look forward to hearing back from you!

You will not be disappointed when you discover your product or service discretely embedded alongside the guaranteed 100% erudite content of this blog. Don't take your LakeCountyEye's word on it. You probably did not notice but a local product or service has been discretely embedded in this very post!

Haha, act now before it's too late.

If you are an elected official, or a previously elected official, or just a private citizen under indictment, send your political questions to Q the Eye c/o ...
