What’s Your Number….Baby?

VERY often I stumble on, or am introduced to GREAT products! I visit their web site to contact them for what could be a fantastic opportunity…..and find only a contact EMAIL…..for which I send an inquiry, and hear no response. Oh La La, YIKES!

This happened to me recently, and I need to express my sympathy, and dismay, to the product owner.

Why, because I showed this product to pitch man Billy Mays (you know the Oxy-Clean & Mighty Putty guy) and he likes the product for TV.  I am unable however to reach the product owner because they have no contact number and are NOT responding to my e-mails.  Billy Mays and his DRTV campaigns are known for selling tens of thousands of products A DAY on TV……unfortunately it will not happen for this product. BIG mistake….Talk about letting the BIG fish get away-

Moral of this story: Always put a contact phone number on your web page, for me, or anyone to contact you with a great opportunity!
