Are you all getting these emails from people asking you to be a reference?  I know this has to be spammers but how can I tell my clients to stop doing this stuff as it doesn't help.

SWIRT: what is your opinion on this kind of stuff?  It doesn't do any good does it? I know someone has told people at our Chamber to do this and I want to tell them why they should stop it.

Thanks

I have been getting a lot of invitations from Linked In as well as the let's link e-mails from places I do not know. I delete all of them. I do not want my name or web site associated with anything i do not personally know.

Personally I would not patronize a business that spammed me for a referral. And what exactly does a referral look like? A fake review??? With my name on it if I respond to the email?

If your folks are willing to build an email list of businesses they would like a referral from why not just ask the biz owner in person or with a personal email? Why PAY someone to send an email?
