These are two easy to resist ad offers I received in the past days:
Hi, I will give you $25 (they did not tell me for how long – per day? per month? for ever?) in exchange for placing a text ad for an international calls provider on this page: Sorry Vodafone I am using your free Minutes to call abroad for free Please let me know if you are interested. Thanks, Stephanie
The next resistable offer I received:
Hello. I`m Becky Phillips, Marketing Director at sunshine.co.uk. I`ve just been searching for potential partners and having seen your website andreinchile.com I thought I`d drop you a line to see if you would be interested in a relationship with our site sunshine.co.uk. We are a pure play online travel agency, catering for the UK consumer looking for cheap holidays in the sun. . We had a couple of ideas which I hope you will find useful:- 1) We can have our editorial team research and hand write some content for you to add to a page on andreinchile.com. We will agree a subject with you that is relevant to both of our sites (it won`t be a sales pitch for us!) and will include a single simple text link back to a relevant content page on our site. The content will be uniquely written for you and will not be re-used elsewhere. It should be helpful to your visitors and of course the search engines, as will the presence of a relevant link back to us. Hopefully we will also benefit from the link in the longer term. – OR – 2) We can exchange links with you, directly from a relevant content page on sunshine.co.uk. We will explain where links are located on our site (on properly indexed and ranked pages) when you reply – we don`t have a links page as such – we link from the most relevant page to each partner. There are of course no costs for you associated with either approach. *** IMPORTANT – PLEASE USE OUR RESPONSE PAGE IF POSSIBLE *** We have found that quite a few emails go missing — plus I`m either out or in meetings much of the time and can take a while to reply to emails — so we have created a simple and quick-to-use response page that provides detailed information and answers to questions on the various options and allows you to send us messages . . and much more! You can access it here:- Page: http://www.sunshine.co.uk/SS-IRS-Response.html Well well seems all they want is a link to boost their Page Rank on Google.
I am NOT interested – thanks!!! Do you get those offers? What do you do with them. Reply, trash or do you agree to those deals?
