I just got a call from (another) telemarketing company today.
He starts off, "This is Daniel from Netbiz.com on behalf of Google.com. Do you want to be on the first page of Google permanently?"
Of course I do! Did I tell him that? No. I said "I'm not going to pay you for that." He said, "Okay, thanks" and hung up the phone. Wow, that was one of the easiest conversations I've had with a telemarketer.
Then I thought, who the heck are these guys telling us they're calling on behalf of Google.com? I checked out their website - Netbiz.com.
Their site says Netbiz is recognized by Google as an Adwords Qualified Company. So what? Are they really calling me on behalf of Google? I really doubt that. I already pay for Google Adwords. And I'm certainly not going to start paying big bucks on a pay-per-click campaign for a broad term like "Hawaii real estate".
Watch out for those telemarketers and focus on fundamentals in your real estate business.
