Tell a Small Lie,
Loose My Business
We don’t know about you folks but we
don’t really care to be lied to. Or
even intentionally mislead. Now we
understand in marketing one needs creativity to catch a person’s attention. We also understand that one may feel pressured to get
attention for one’s goods or services and so on.
But come on!
Do you really think anyone likes being
played the fool! Do you
think we will just think, OK they are playing games, and think we will not
notice it, but lets do business with them.
Or lets give them a free plug!
Well congratulations to you folks over
, we are giving you that “free” plug. Most
likely not the one you wanted though!
We received an email that read (in part) as:
Hello Mike, it was a
pleasure meeting you recently at the networking event. It's always great to get
out to meet new people, exchange ideas and refer business among peers. I'm
sure you're wading through your pile of business cards not ……………..
Well lets see this was marked as coming
from an Alyson, but strangely it reads as from a Paul Dutch… I find that
strange. Strange enough in the
world of email to definitely not trust it.
It also talks about us meeting at a recent event.
Well we had no recollection of that. And could find no trace of any event
that we had attended with their organization. So we did find their web site and looked it over.
Nope no recollection of ever dealing with this agency or going to one of
their events. So Alyson, you are
mistaken, we have not meet at a recent event…
Or are you just using “BS” to get a
free plug for you, your company, or a client?
Well here you go, you got it. Hope
you like it!
We strongly recommend to anyone, don’t
play emails games to market yourself. Don’t
use “BS” to make someone think they know you.
Over the internet you come across looking like Scammers.
So is Alyson and her company scammers or
just misunderstood good folks? Well,
we simply don’t know. But they
did rub us the wrong way. And made a bad first impression!
Had they been straight up with us, we
may have helped them out.
So folks, don’t play games. Be straight up, make a good impression. Trust me it will make you look better then the game playing.
