There I was sitting reading the email of the day it was so good I thought I would share it!
Here is how to almost write the perfect sales pitch, just note the few minor technical details, I have included for their benefit to make it perfect!
My name is Shrenik Vora with Techndu and I just wanted to tell you that I have
been a recent reader of your website www.timnash.co.uk and I’ve enjoyed reading all your SEO articles. I think you show real insight into the issue of social media marketing.
Nice, not that I really write about social media on timnash.co.uk, but my head has expanded with the praise and they spelt my name right! how cool is that.
Tim, Techndu is a division of SearchKing Techno Labs and is owned by Bob Massa.
You may be familiar with Bob as he has been a leader in the SEO community for
well over a decade.
Note repeated use of my name, it’s going well! so they are related to a guy called Bob Massa interesting, name was familiar so a quick Google and…
Bob is one of the Internet’s most recognized, leading experts on top search engine placement. He has owned and operated Magic-city.net top search engine placement service since 1997
Wow that’s impressive, a look at his mug shot yep confirmed that it was the person I was thinking of.
But what about…
Free cheap and affordable windows and Linux hosting for website, domain name, Business, personal use
Hmmm ok so their main business would appear to be Linux hosting, not a problem particularly though its a bit of a leap from web site hosting to ethical SEO link building, wait they have a section called Outsourcing this sounds more like it, web design, SEO they do it all, no mention of Bob though maybe he wasn’t available for the photo call? They have a lovely page where you can meet the employees sadly Shrenik profile was not there maybe new? It was however good to see the senior SEO manager had work experience in the UK, sadly he didn’t mention his role at Boots?
So lets continue…
Bob has put together a team in India that specializes in doing the tasks that are so important to any SEO campaign yet are the most labor intensive parts. We specialize in ultra white hat, strictly manual link building and high quality, original content creation for wholesale SEO clients.
One should resist the temptation to think that Bob might have decided Indian labour purely based on cost. I said resist this temptation remember now Bob Massa by his own admission is “Internet’s most recognized, leading experts” he would therefore be very aware of reputation management.
Plus they specialise in ultra white hat linkbuilding, one might wonder what that is… do they wash the links in Daz?
Let’s recap with Bob Massa!
One of the Internets leading experts Bob Massa has sent little old me, a mere and very humble reputation management specialist an Email detailing a potential business offer! How cool is that, what’s more its all going to be squeaky clean White Hat tactics (side note have you ever searched for the term ethical SEO India or maybe even white hat…)
To be fair at this point the pitch got better, free report blah blah it was a reasonable pitch it was never going to work but it was a good stab. Then…
While Bob has been in this business for a long time, Techndu is new, we are hungry and we WANT your business. We will work very hard to get it but even harder to keep it. But I can’t prove that to you until you give me the chance.
Just reply, ask me, (or Bob), ANYTHING and we’ll respond within 24 hours !
Why does Bob Massa the well respected Internet search engine specialist employ people to spam my Inbox?
Think that sounded harsh? Well I will let you into a secret my contact form it records referral information….
