I've seen loads of lead generation companies being advertised and I just wonder what everyone thinks of using this type of service?
I can't help thinking it is a little underhanded. This is simply because I have often had companies cold calling me and adding me to their newsletter lists when I never signed up.
I get quite upset when I answer my phone and the person knows my name and surname and tries to sell me something. I also get annoyed when I open up my email in the morning and 50% of my emails are newsletter that I have not signed up for.
These lead generation companies are surely people that have gathered names, email addresses and phone numbers right?
