I can't count the number of businesses I have tried to purchase a product or service from over the last year that I have received no followup from. Is everyone making so much money that they no longer need any new business? I contacted a national website in November of last year regarding advertising on their site (their main source of revenue on the site), talked about what they offered and told them we wanted to start advertising the beginning of January, it's January 23rd and I've not heard a thing from them.
I talked to a major SEO company a few months back, discussed over the phone what we wanted to do, rep said he was going to email more information, 30 minutes later he emailed a service agreement/invoice (which did not reflect what we talked about but that's a different story) and nothing else. Been 2 months since that email and have not heard anything else from them.
If they're not going to try to get my business what does that say about the kind of service I would get if I did hire them? These are US based businesses, I've got sub-contractors from Pakistan and India that I haven't used in years that still email and call looking for business regularly.
