To the list of menaces threatening the lowly inbox we can now apparently add exploding video offers

snipshot_b21e95t2g7d1.jpgTo the list of menaces threatening the lowly inbox we can now apparently add exploding video offers. A new novelty application called BigString Marketer Pro lets marketers send e-mail blasts containing offers that can be programmed to self-destruct at a specified time. The tool attempts to “introduce a sense of urgency and excitement by creating time-sensitive video offers that self destruct,” according to a statement from BigString CEO and President Darin Myman.
