SEO Salesmen Gone Wild

As if the field of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) does not already have too many disreputable practitioners, our friends at McCollum & Griggs in Kansas City got this voice mail.

He broke all the standard rules. He claimed not only the ability to get this Attorney's office to page one on Google, he said he could keep them there "forever". That and calling the prospect an idiot was by itself enough to land him in the Lousy Salesman Hall Of Fame. Just to make sure he made a big impression, he also improbably claimed to work for Microsoft.  But what really makes him special is that he apparently makes his prospecting calls after binge drinking.
