Unprofessional “professional” websites

Dear business owners- don’t make ridiculously complicated policies that make customers NOT want to contact you.

For example- this “email policy” from the Black River Outdoor Center in South Carolina

1. our eMail is scanned by ATT for viruses and junk before downloading

2. our eMail is scanned on our computer by McAfee’s AntiVirus

3. we do not keep your eMail address nor provide it to others for spamming

Email isn’t this scary, folks. This company should probably install a contact form to their website, in order to make the subject lines relevant and prevent unwanted attachments, instead of insulting intelligent customers with such asinine instructions. Perhaps it was meant to be humorous. Why would anyone looking to rent a canoe send a note with the subject line “From a  hot babe” And, assuming that the sender actually was a hot babe, would their message be ignored if they were actually wanting to rent a canoe?  Hot babes canoe, can you?

I saved the best for last, though because here’s what it says just above that crazy policy:

So, while I can’t imagine why a business wouldn’t have a form in order to automate this work of collecting information and asking specific questions- they’re on dial up?  Seriously? When I read this policy, I was amazed that they were still in business, then I scrolled down to realize that they’re for sale.  I have some advice for the new owners; get a real website, and have a nice day.

Inspired by ‘s report

My goal is to make a fortune every month through residual income and passive income.

Clearly, I have a long way to go.

Residual income comes from articles written in the past.

Each month I devote 4-6 hours of my time, writing articles for revenue-sharing sites that will generate residual income forever.

Each month, the income grows while the time commitment stays the same.
