Affiliate Ball Featuring Ice-T & Coco With MixMaster Mike of The Beastie Boys (Sponsored by

Ad Hustler Commentary: We all know that I think AffiliateBall is the best put together party in the industry.  This year, in addition to the musical acts, they are hosting the first every AFFY Awards.  Basically, it’s an award ceremony with winners from within the industry presented by Ice-T & Coco.  It sounds kind of fun so I hope some good people win the awards.  Affiliate Ball is the one party that EVERYONE has to go to.

Ad Hustler Commentary: This actually has an awesome lineup.  Vanilla Ice sounds stupid but he’s an awesome performer especially if he’s doing his metal style.  I’ve seen it and it’s GREAT!  Why is every freakin’ party always on the same day?

Being Disrespectful To Clients Gets You More Business

Posted by Ad Hustler | Posted in Doing Business, Local Online Advertising | Posted on 10-07-2012

I read an interesting post on Wickedfire yesterday titled How I make £50K+ every month.  He claims that by treating his clients like crap, he can command more money and close sales more easily.  Chances are, the guy who wrote it is just a troll but I found the post intriguing.  Here’s why:

Common sense dictates that you should kiss your clients’ ass, make sure their happy and offer excellent service.  What if common sense is wrong?  What if being so helpful and accommodating actually resulted in you making LESS money?

I obviously take care of my clients.  However, i’ve seen a lot of situations where the more accommodating you are to a client, the more they take advantage of you and the less they seem to respect you or want to pay for anything.  Maybe it’s because you seem desperate to them.  Maybe, by being LESS accommodating you’d lose that client, but on the flip side pick up another one that’s a lot less needy.

I’d love to see a real case study on this.  One salesperson goes in and treats 5 clients like gold and 5 clients like crap and then compares how the manageability of each account changes.

Who’s up for this?  What are you’re thoughts on it?
