OTOH -- and despite heatedly adamant denials to the contrary -- some of
you might perhaps be thinking that this offer definitely isn't _at all_
some new type of scam??

In that case, will liberally paraphrase the text of this "generous offer"
as follows....
The site seems like a great fit for a key client campaign
[vaguely-identified "I'm"] working on, and [our vaguely-identified
entity's] in-house writers can create a high-quality article based on your
audience to make sure it's a great fit for you too!

As [our vaguely-identified entity has] several other top clients looking
to enhance their brand via editorial content in this [scam-targeted]
niche, [our vaguely-identified "we"] can likely bring further
opportunities your way later down the line if you're [gullibly] open to

See here two examples of recent pieces we have done:

[Vaguely-identified "I"] look forward to receiving your pricing info or
just let [vaguely-unidentified "me"] know if you prefer a quick
[phone-phishing] call.

Stuart comment
Its a scam site, they are sending out spam emails saying they represent
200,000 blogs but have no social media and the address on their website
does not exist. They are also using the domain openzurich.com

*5. Excerpt from scam-detector.com's 'audiencr.com Review'
audiencr.com legit? Nope. It has the lowest trust rating on our chart.
