I have decided to charge $20 to contact me personally. Yes, I know that is very inexpensive, but the point isn’t to make money off of this as much as is to weed out the 250+ per day that were getting submitted.
Most people that try to contact me through here just want to get on the phone and “talk”. Which I REALLY do not have time to do. However, I would be stupid to write off everyone because I have had some great business relationships from people contacting me.
So this is a win/win. I will actually read and personally respond to your email as fast as possible. You are not some monkey at a company mass contacting authority figures to link, interview, chit chat, blah blah.
If you are not full of crap and its worth $20 to you that I read and respond to your message then fire away.
