More and more often I am receiving different kind of ‘business proposals’ and ‘cooperation offers’. I use quotes because ‘bidders’ misuse ‘business proposals’ and ‘cooperation offers’.
Actually I am dealing with banal marketers who aggressively promote their services. Usually, they don’t even bother to decide on their targeted audience, at least superficially.
I am open to cooperation, but I am not interested in offers of services — when there is a need for a service, I will find someone who will provide me with this service. Here’s why I want to tell my annoying marketers this:
Please, be so kind to
— look closer at what I am busy with (everything is available on sites linked to my LinkedIn profile),
— consider how can you fit in and
— send me a standard business proposal (Google can help you to find samples) with digits (sic!) and explanation how my business or nonprofits will benefit from my cooperation with you.
