Doing It Wrong

I got this email the other day… do people really just turn their sites over for advertising from completely unrelated businesses?


My name is [REDACTED], Founder and CEO of [REDACTED], a company providing software as a service (SaaS) applications for the real estate and mortgage industry. I write articles about sales, marketing and contact management best practices to help mortgage planners and Realtors get ahead of the race in today’s competitive market. I am very interested in becoming a contributor to your blog. Let me know what steps need to be taken to make it happen by e-mailing my assistant, [REDACTED], at [REDACTED]@[REDACTED].com.

Thank you for your consideration,


Executive Assistant

I was very tempted to leave the identifying information in… I need to add a note to my contact page that anything sent in to me can be published here.
