@simsi you act as though the days of cold calling on the telephone, knocking on doors and attending meet and greets are the way the world operates now.
I have some news for you, the business world IS going back to this and I have just experienced it in Germany at a huge widget trade fair, it surprised me big time.
Real-world companies buying real-world products have lost faith, literally do not believe, the results they are being given. They are crap, period.
In the 90s I was advocating the imminent "new" world order of information, since the intorduction of the P'animals nothing could be further from the truth.
The majority of businesses in the world, mostly SMEs, WANT to know who they're dealing with, BS websites do not cut it, period. I now have new customers who had seen our sites for YEARS but never, for whatever reason, requested prices, four days in Germany and I've taken multi-million Dollars worths of confirmed orders ...
Believe all the button pushers you want to, people want to see the whites of ones eyes:-)
