… sent an email to a bookkeeper.
He was referred by a friend. She told me he works alone, which is what I’m looking for.
I received an immediate response!
Unfortunately, it was an automated email.
It was six paragraphs and 414 words long.
It came with a required, 32-question survey. (Excellent, I love homework!)
Needless to say, I’m moving on.
Big companies need to triage and filter inbound requests. The volume of these requires it.
It’s understandable, but bureaucracy is not a benefit to prospects; it’s an obstacle.
Try not to build one unless absolutely necessary.
