B2B demand generation | The answer is no, nein, nada.
Early in 2010, I worked in marketing for a small Florida CRM company called Aplicor. After just 30 days, the CEO at the time dismissed me without warning – no reason given. I had never received one negative comment….
In addition, they refused to return the domains I had sold them at bargain basement prices. They turned these domains into Black Hat SEO sites – stuffing them with keywords..
To make matters worse, they re-purposed my domains – rendering my websites and email defunct. They even set it up so any calls or emails from me were blocked. I found this humiliating.
Aplicor has a new CEO and new marketing head. Interestingly, the new CEO told me every flaw I had seen was true. Recently both of them have reached out to me via Linkedin. (Maybe they finally realized what they once had and lost.)
The answer is NO! I do not wish to connect. You made this bed and now you have to lie in it.
I have no respect whatsoever for Aplicor.
