At about 1 this morning I signed up to a handful of free online business directory thingy’s in the hope of drumming up a bit of business. Each one, however, had a warning that they “have been receiving reports of companies phoning soon after adding a listing to try and sell advertising space, these are in no way affiliated with us”.
Needless to say I’ve had three of these calls this morning trying to pressurise me into giving them £500 over the phone to get an A6 advert into their wonderful magazine that no one has heard of but it will guarantee over 11 contacts each week…
Reckon I’ll give them a miss and just deal with customers directly for now!!
