Pitch correctly and you’ll have more luck

I just got a canned email pitch from a salesman who deals in packaging. Every once in awhile a TFI member decides to email everyone. He’s promising to take I want – I got to the next level. I don’t think this guy realized that I want – I got is a website. I emailed him to let him know that I can’t see how his packaging company is going to help considering it’s not a physical product.

Here is a piece of advice for you business folk. If you bother to do a little research before sending out spam emails then you could focus your time on the right potential clients.

While I’m posting about things that annoy me.

1. I won’t tell you the trends for 2008/2009. Join TFI and find out yourself.

2. I don’t work for any of the companies that are listed on this site. Don’t ask me to track down some obscure product, I cannot.
