MerchantCircle.com — Poor telephone marketing strategy
This company, www.merchantcircle.com , is a directory for businesses in all areas. I thin they get their listings from a phone book and an old one at that. They then let you sign up for free, or better yet, sell you a subscription to promote your business.
We received 3 telephone calls last Friday at 3 different telephone numbers in our Salon. The message was the same each time. You have a negative review at merchantscircle.com.
When we checked it out there are no reviews for any of the those particular stylists. Just address info.
When I googled merchantcircle.com I found quite a few blogs are reporting the same thing. It seems to be a marketing ploy to get business owners to go to their site and look for the bad review, maybe thinking they should sign up.
Since I know of no one who has ever heard of merchantcircle.com I would guess that is their POOR strategy.
