IZEA Generates Icky PR for SXSW
We love ourselves some SXSW. Expect us there, cameras at the ready, this year.
But this morning when we checked our email we caught a subject line that read, "The TACK: Ted Wants You at SXSW."
The TACK is PayPer-- er, IZEA's online newsletter. Ted is the company's CEO. He gets off on undisclosed paid posts and is always fighting with people about the viability of his business model.
Then we opened the email and saw this. Love pygmies!
And for, like, eight minutes, we were turned-off by the idea of going anywhere, much less SXSW at Ted's behest.
