  1. Word of mouth advertising...does not pay. Recently I recommended an associate to a Persian Restaurant. He thought the food was excellent and paid over £80. The proprietor asked who had given the recommendation.He said "Some man at work"
    Needless to say, there'll be no referral commissions this month.
    Send them to a lead capture page every time.


Thank you for your comment/s.
