This stuff gives me a Bad Attitude!
Here is my list of what gets me angry:
3. Excessive Whining
6. Being Used
7. Companies that pay marketers to comment on blogs-in a fake value adding way, to try to get traffic to try to sell something.
Here is an example that has been all over the franchise blogoshere:
saw your posting and thought you would be interested in some advice
from my client, Blank Franchise company.If you are thinking about starting a
business or purchasing a franchise. “Make sure you select a business
about which and about whose products you are truly passionate. Like any
business you choose to run, it is a marriage. You’ll be living,
breathing, nurturing and growing it for a long time and nothing is
worse than a marriage without love,” advises Mr. Blankety Blank, president
of finance and franchise development at Blank Franchise Company. Mr. Blankety Blank has been
managing the expansion of its franchise network through the opening of # new stores in 2005 to a total of # locations. Learn more about how
to choose a franchise or determine whether a franchise business is
right for you by contacting Mr. Blankety Blank at ###-###-#### or email him at Blank.com You may also visit www.Blankety Blank Franchise.com for more information.
This ploy to sell franchises has been reported as spam in the past. Does anyone have any other ideas? This is ridiculous…
