SEO – SEM Cold Callers

You know it never ceases to amaze me how these new SEO companies can send out emails offering to raise websites in the search engines without even doing the most basic research first. When I say simple I mean basic research like finding out the domain of the site they are emailing?

Here is a typical example of an email they send out:

“I’ve helped many well-known companies get the highest search engine placement for their website at the lowest cost, and want to do the same for you. If your interested, reply with the website address you want reviewed and how you would like me to contact you with the details.”

How can these people honestly think that they should be trusted to improve anything when they can’t even be trusted to look at the website prior to emailing somebody about their services?

If that were the worst of it that would be bad enough but when you go and review the site that sent you the email, to see if they have the ability to back up that claim, you usually come across some cookie cutter website that lacks any useful information. The most recent offer that came to me came from some site that was made up entirely in Flash.

I am not going to tell you what you need to do in order to successfully sign up new clients but I will suggest this… do some research first!
