I've seen that error a lot. I was worked for a recruitment company once who had a recruitment company contact them for help finding candidates for their jobs. I asked which jobs did they refer to (expecting them to be a recruitment to recruitment firm). To my amazement they listed jobs that my company was promoting on the website. It is always important to do research on your prospects before you pick up the phone. Know why you are calling and that they are an appropiate prospect. If you make calls for the sake of calls - you're just a busy fool."
Thanks for the comment. It is a challenge for people to realise this. However, too many clients think that a single social media post can earn them thousands or millions. That is why I continuously remind them of the number of interactions to sell and the length of time it can take."
Martin, You are most welcome. Any time I can help, happy to. In regards to Twitter. They never responded to me about my spam account comments I made before, so I doubt that they would listen to me about Twitter follow limits. For Crowdfire, I've not tested it myself. I do a lot of Twitter management on social oomph, commun.it, Twitter and Hootsuite - combining the best parts of them to get a solution that is near perfect. Look forward to listening to your podcast. David"
Its not just the hospitality industry which suffers from this crisis. There are also issues within the publishing and other industries. It is something that I mentioned in a previous blog post -> http://twofeetmarketing.com/book-reviews-sell/ I also wrote about it on an author blog of mine. It is a shame that these things happen, but that is why it is so important to cultivate positive reviews with every customer - so 'fake reviews' are obvious or the minority."
