Hiya all, 1st post so be kind. Firstly, WOW, I read the thread with the WOW in it, well that's what I get when I read a lot of things in this forum, thank's to everyone, it's a great place to be and full of clever people from all walks of life. I tip my hat to you all. Right, while surfing, I bumped into a website and it was knackered, text and images everywhere, ( by the way I am no judge on anything that goes on in here, I know jacksh*t full stop) My first attempt at any IM at all. So I sent them this, Sent: Monday, August 10, 2009 3:42 PM Subject: Website Good day to you all. I am looking for a nice watch for my Husband, an Omega of course. I have seen a couple I like on your website. Personally I am a website designer and a SEO expert with 8 years working for someone else, and recently started to work for myself. I have done tons of designing ans SEO work for numerous companies. I noticed that your site is full of errors maybe some files have slipped. I have noticed the ranking with Alea and your site is at 405,050, do you know I could boost your ranking and tidy your website up for you. I am doing some portfollio work and need some clients for my testimonials etc, I am willing to do the work at a fraction of the cost for about 6 or so business's ever so cheap. I could have you ranking on Google and all the other search engines in no time. This alone will get you more visitors and I can get you some very important back links from PR2 to PR9 ( very important). I can do all this as a one time offer for you for £400 and that's very inexpensive to say the least. Sorry to diversify, Kind regards. Julie Chadderton. And in reply I got this. Dear Julie, Thank you for your enquiry, can I assume this is something you would like to offset against the price of an Omega or a service you would offer? Kind regards Mark Gawers. Shit! what do I do? Bear in mind, I'm male, in my later years and know how to copy and paste. SEO haha ha, Website design haha ha, clueless. The question is how do I answer? Like this, Derar Mr. Gowers, Mark, well well well, you cottoned on to my ploy, ha ha, as if. Seriously though, the other day I was having a look around the WWW and bumped into your website, and as you can see its fallen apart for some strange reason, have you had it recently checked? It just seems a shame to have some of the best and beautiful watches on show only to be spoiled by your website, Mark it will turn plenty of people away in the first 5 seconds. It will it's a strongly known fact. The amount of business you could be losing, well who knows? Maybe it's me being self critical, but I do notice those things, it's what I'm good at, lol. (Now here is another bait). I will send you a couple of examples of my work, if your interested? And just for you a nice lickle piccy of me then you know who you are dealing with. Warm regards. Julie. My first ploy. What or how would you answer? Can't wait, lmao.
