Had to post and let you all know what a sucker i've just been! I thought i'd learnt to spot the hard sell from a mile away thanks to bhw but apparently not! This morning i got an email from a company called more digital asking if i'd be interested in having one of their client's ads placed on my website, as my site is pretty much dead in the water i thought hell ye! they offered £120 for the year (a small text ad) and then directed me to the t&c which were very straightforward. While looking at the site i thought wow these guys could really help give my site a boost, i think i will use them (still no alarm bells ringing), so after 6 or 7 mails going back and forth - the final one was "sorry we cannot find you a matching client at this time" Gotta say, even then it took a good 5 mins for the penny to finally drop LOL. I don't know if i want to give them a slap or a round of applause! I'm sure this is old news to most of the regs, but to any of the newbies offering SEO or social media marketing services - go out, find some failing sites and make a bloody killing!
