Selling SEO services by spamming people

Frustration Thumb DownI got another spam mail from a company trying to sell their SEO services by spamming people. I get these pretty frequently. So, I am going to quickly explain to this particular company and everyone like them a simple fact:

You company probably suck at SEO if you have to resort to spamming to sell your SEO services

If you as a SEO company can’t get clients because of your placements in the major search engines, how are you thinking you can help anyone with the very same thing? Let me explain something to you quickly: We get our clients through the search engines and through referrals from other clients. We never have, and never will resort to spamming or direct sales or any other method than the methods we promote to our clients.

I am totally stunned by how many SEO companies operate.

Here is the mail I got from

  1. You’re right Bjørn. SEO people who are using spamming techniques just to get clients use spammy techniques that are often avoided by clients. Google search gives us more than 70% of our site visitors and this is through our marketing efforts.

    Thanks for the share!
