If you want to act FOOLISH – I’ll Blog It

Start at the bottom and read the thread. Let me know what you would have done.

Wow – This is a the wrong way to try to create any type of meaningful and long term relationship on LinkedIn.

Do you know who you are offering this referral fee opportunity to?
Do I know who you are or what your business is all about?
Do you know who I am and what I do?
Do you want someone like me referring your company for website work?
Do you think I want to recommend you or your business to do website work for others?
Do you know the businesses that I work with and the types of people I work with?

Steve (Not his real name) – you sent this email to the wrong guy.

I’d love for you to learn why. Maybe it’ll change your marketing activity and help you and your business.

Good luck with your activities, but no thank you.

Reach out to me if you want to learn to do this better
