“Success-Fee-Only” catches my attention

I received a badly designed, probably untargeted, on LinkedIn. Well actually a lot of them, but something makes this one stand out from the background noise.

It says that they have a success-fee-only business model.

It catches my attention because it suggests they actually believe in their service offering.

It catches my attention because perhaps the cash-strapped in my circle might use them to bootstrap their way to success.

It doesn’t capture my imagination to the point that I would agree to a 15-minute call, but it does get a reply from beyond a link to the No Form Letters posting.

It’s December, which brings the total of such replies I sent up to exactly one.

I hope, but don’t expect, it won’t disappoint me.
