After yet another time wasting cold call from a self proclaimed SEO expert I had to get something off my chest. The problem is I don’t have time to engage with time wasters and the SEO industry has to be the biggest bunch of time bandits out there.
Any any given day my business receives at least 3 phone calls from these knuckleheads. Add that to the 5 LinkedIn connection requests and the umpteen million spam emails and you may start to understand why these oxygen thieves piss me and my staff off.
They make these grandiose claims that they will deliver a never ending stream of free high converting traffic all on auto pilot. My question always remains…”if you’re as good as you claim why are you resorting to cold calls and spam email. If you can’t create traffic for yourself then there is no way I’m going to trust you to create traffic for me”
When it comes to SEO, like everything in Marketing, all you need do is get the basics in place and it just works.
