I get so many emails each day with lot of business proposals for forums and blogs but this one was just too funny . The story begins with some Guy Mainak from Kolkata contacts me through my Google+ Profile for a business proposal and wants to share it with me. Normally I am open to meeting people but as it is April time I become lot more busy with my taxation and other non-technical stuff and so could not meet him. I thought the best option could be to meet him at my home on a weekend but that did not work as well.
Suddenly after I ask him about his blog or about page where I can read more about him, he says
have you understood my proposal
And that shook me off. 9 minutes ago he said this
i will send my propsal on Monday.After that we can proceed
Proposal that he will send few days later and he is still expecting that I know it already. But things like those can happen in a chat and so we still end the conversation with a note that he would send me the proposal on Monday.
5 days later i.e. on Wednesday he pings me and this is the conversation. You may fall off your chair reading it.
He starts with
here i go with my proposal
And the next line
do you have wordpress blogs?
He probably forgot yet again that he had a glanced over my blog’s about page, which is a WordPress blog. Again these things can happen because 5 days have passed. The next statement made me go mad at him.
how many wp blogs can you add to my system?
I know nothing about the system. What it is, where it is and how it works and so I said NO. But then he assumed that I know how to read his mind.
He said people are ready to add blogs to his system without meeting him and we know what type of blogs he is talking about. Though I could not understand his idea but I can sense it was something inline with some blog network to make money from it.
Moral of the Story
If you have a business proposal for anybody make sure you have a proposal that conveys what you have in mind before asking someone to be part of it or else it could be on left for others to laugh at
