Bribe me. Seriously. I’m good for it.
Here’s the thing – I won’t and can’t be influenced to like or recommend a service or product if it’s given to me for free.
I can’t be sold, but I can be enticed to try something of value.
If I’m offered a one-year free service for a service that enhances my marketing, will I accept? Surely.
Will I disclose such bribes? If I write a review or comment about a product in a public forum or in conversation – Absolutely.
Will I write a favorable review just because I received something for free? Nope.
Will I write a negative review? The likelihood of this is the same as whether I write a positive review.
Do my clients or customers care? Nope. They don’t care if I pay five, ten or no thousand dollars for something that helps to effectively market their homes.
It would be irresponsible of me to not try a tool that might benefit my clients.
Everything I do is focused on the client, on trust and honor.
