Shouting: Want your well-cooked spam to get noticed? Use all caps and plenty of exclamation marks!
Best Buddy: Shouting seem like 'too much' for this batch of spam? Try being the recipient's best buddy instead. 'Saw this and thought of you,' and 'Can you believe what he did?' are nice options.

Fix What's Not Wrong: Worried that recipients don't need some of the great ingredients in your special Spam? Don't! Instead, create a need by implying they have problems they don't have-- then offer them crappy drugs, scammy get rich quick programs, etc., to fix their new problem.

- Never give your email address anywhere online. If you have to, spell it out.
