Biz Bid Welcome

Filed under: — Administrator @ 12:50 pm

Welcome to the Biz Bid business information site.

Our goal is to provide you with more than just a source of relevant business information, but to do so in the form of an entertaining “Electronic Textual Collage” of seeming random but relevant information found throughout the Internet and the “Blog-O-Sphere“.

Unlike most business oriented blogs or websites of a strictly utilitarian nature this site is also a functional “Work of Art“. The inspiration for this “Work of Art” was based on similar concepts such as the “Google Zeitgeist“, the “Google Hack Honeypot“, the “Web Collage XscreenSaver“, and other various sources.

Most of this site’s visitors are assumed to be people (like you) searching for information of an entrepreneurial nature related to topics such as: Starting a New Business, Commercial Real Estate Leasing, Franchising Opportunities, Finding a Suitable Business Location, Business Marketing, Sales and Lead Generation. Just to name a few of the vertical markets we are targeting.

Our hope is that you will not only find the relevant business information your looking for but are also entertained by our unique presentment of the information at hand and our overall content.

Thanks for stopping bye.

Biz Bid Anti Spam Policy

Filed under: — Administrator @ 12:50 pm

Just a quick plain English note about our Anti-Spam policy here at Biz Bid First of all we never send out unsolicited commercial email (UCE or SPAM) period. We never will. Plus we don’t do cold telemarketing calls or junk faxes either.

We only correspond via email and phone with those persons or businesses that have contacted us first and with those we have an established business relationship with. In other words we pre-qualify our business clients by making them initiate first contact with us. We don’t like being bothered with unsolicited phone calls and emails either. So we follow the “Golden Rule” and try to treat our visitors, clients, and complete strangers with the same respect we want to receive.

In fact the only unsolicited commercial correspondence we ever make is via the United State Postal Service with a first class stamp.

So unlike other disreputable firms sending the equivalent of millions of electronic sales-solicitations postage-due to their potential clients, we foot the bill for our own direct marketing. In fact if your foolish enough to respond to sales-solicitations made in such a disreputable manner we don’t want you as a client. To us it’s just a big red flag.

However, Because of our stance against unsolicited commercial email we are now periodically having our domain name “spoofed” for large amounts of spam. So if you think you received any spam from us please check the IP address of the sending email server and you will find the true sending party. It will not be us.

Having said that we also would like to point out another thing that pisses us off. That is the common practice for a lot of sites to claim that you “opted-in” when in fact they purchased your email address from someone (who lied about their privacy policy) or just went out and harvested your email address direct from the Internet.

We use to try and “opt-out” of these initial emails but as it turns out anyone who lies about you “opting-in” in the first place is not likely to remove you from their mailing list. Now we just blacklist these fake “opt-ins” from our email servers.

BTW, In the future we are going to be posting the names of companies who deal in the practice of fake “opt-ins”.

However, unlike the idiot who runs the “Better Ethics Online - Email Black List” we will not just list a bunch of “spoofed” email addresses of innocent parties. How this idiot got his site listed in the “Open Directory Project” I’ll never know. (So much for supposed quality of a human editor.)

What we are going to do here is report the names of the actual companies that are the “end-users” who are deriving their economic gain from spamming you at your expense. That is the least we can do.

Thanks for stopping bye.
