In today’s digital age, contact-us forms have become a ubiquitous feature on most websites. However, I have recently removed the traditional contact-us forms from my website for various reasons. One of the primary reasons is the constant barrage of spam messages from so-called SEO experts and business coaches promising unrealistic goals with unverified claims to success. Instead, I have enabled clients and students to contact me directly via text message, which allows for more direct, human-to-human communication.
The problem with email
The rise of email as a means of communication has solved many problems, but it has also introduced new ones. The traditional contact-us forms that are found on most websites are a direct result of this. They were created to make it easier for visitors to contact website owners without having to open their email client or manually copy and paste an email address. However, this convenience has led to a significant increase in spam messages that can be incredibly frustrating for website owners.
Email attempted to solve a problem we never had, and continues to introduce problems we can do without.
As a result, I decided to remove the contact-us forms from my website altogether. By doing so, I have eliminated the need to filter out spam messages and can now focus on meaningful conversations with my clients and students. It also allows for more direct, human-to-human communication, which is often more effective (and fun) than email. So shoot me a text: 604-210-8668.
Just text me
Real friends text each other to stay in touch. So let’s be more than internet friends. Text messaging has become one of the most popular means of communication in recent years. It’s fast, convenient, and allows for instant communication. By enabling my clients and students to contact me directly via text message, I have made it easier for them to reach me, and I can respond to their queries more quickly. Moreover, text messaging is less formal than email and allows for more personal and friendly communication.
Removing traditional “contact-us” forms from my website has been a game-changer for me. It has eliminated the constant barrage of spam messages and allowed me to focus on meaningful conversations with my clients and students. By encouraging people to contact me directly via text message, I can provide a more personalized and effective service. So why not give it a try and say hello via text? I’m sure you’ll find it a more pleasant experience than sending yet another email to an overloaded inbox. I look forward in hearing from you.
