Mashable (the self-stated premier source for Social Networking News) has an article that basically says they are too busy to handle any Web 2.0/Social Networking consultation – so they are “outsourcing it”. Not to India, I don’t think. But it doesn’t matter.
It’s an odd message to send out – “we want your business, and we’ll monitor things close, but we won’t actually be doing any of the work.”
Sounds like a contractor hiring a contractor.
Hey, I’m available to consult on Social Networking, and as always, my offer is don’t pay me if you don’t think I helped you.
Of course, if you stiff me with no explanation, I’ll probably blog about it – but if you retain me and really don’t feel as if I helped you (and you help me understand where I failed you), the whole thing is free.
What a deal – and no subcontracting! 🙂
