I hate liars.
And I hate salesman who will say ANYTHING to just make a sale. I am sure you’ve been on the receiving end of a sleazy sales-pitch before, and it absolutely sucks. As a matter of fact, it sometimes downright angers me to think that the salesman would insult my intelligence with the B.S. that’s coming out of his mouth.
Ugghh. YUCK! :(
Well, I hate to say it but it’s really no different here in the consulting world – you’ll find all sorts of salesman who are just that great at sales but BBBAAADDD at *ahem* SEO/marketing. They’ll say ANYTHING just to make the sale.
You want instant ranking? Yep, they’ll tell you they can do it.
You want 287,898 visitors a minute? SUUURRRREEE they’ll get that for you.
You want a pet dinosaur? ”No problem – coming right up!” they’d say.
Disgusting. Some online marketing and SEO consultants will say ANYTHING to make a sale.
And poor uneducated and overly-excited small business owners will buy it too!!! And the worst thing is… when the results promised AREN’T showing up in the time promised, they just say, “Oh we need a bit more time and a bit more money.”
One of our clients straight up got scammed out of ~$900,000 over a stretch of 9 months because of this. Wow.
So be VERY wary of a SEO consultant (wannabe) who promises you the sky – run the other way if you come across one.
Remember… if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
