    Tim,

    Yeah I definitely think these guys need to pool together and hire a lawyer for that one. That seems illegal!

    So the webinar wasn't recorded. They did post a recap here: Dominate Google's Local Search Recap

    I'm going to say something about this that may be a tad bit unpopular.

    I kind of feel like the sponsor of the webinar is using some pretty hard sell tactics on me (and others, I speculate, who signed up to listen to the webinar) for signing up to hear the webinar.

    Right after the broadcast, I received one or two emails from them inviting me to visit their site and sign up for a demo. Fine, I can understand that.

    Then I received an email asking me to name a time when I could be available for a demo.

    I replied and said (wanting to be courteous) that I don't have time this week. I also said to contact me next week to arrange a time for a demo.

    Within an hour they called me (when I was in the middle of a client call) and left voicemail asking me to call to schedule that demo.

    Seems pushy to me. Since I have now added their email domain to my email spam list and their phone numbers to my phone's blocked caller list, I won't be bothered by them anymore (I hope) but I just thought Joy might want to know.

    I probably sound like a bit of a curmudgeon, but really, it's too pushy and very unprofessional.
