Blue Rock Digital – Are you getting original work?

Can you be sure you are getting original web design and content??, sadly it came to my attention recently when we were approached by Blue Rock Digital of Swindon and Penryn, who emailed me to see if I was interested in their new white label web design service. What amazed me was the content of their email marketing had been copied from our very own website.

They were using our marketing material to advertise to ourselves! Now firstly of course my first thought was just how a company could be stupid enough to rip off our content and then send us the very evidence of what they were doing!, but then secondly the concern in my opinion is of Blue Rock Digital themselves, the reasons is, the industry we are in requires design, innovation, concepts and quite frankly brain power, so the question that springs to mind, if you would consider using Blue Rock Digital, would you be getting original work or just copied work?

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, however in this industry I disagree, we are in the business of delivering cutting edge, innovative website design, we need to be experts at our own marketing in order to provide you with the website which will work, if Blue Rock Digital can’t even come up with their own advertising, and have to resort to copying more successful companies, then you would have to seriously consider are they right for you, in my humble opinion.

UPDATE – They employ school children to do their marketing, when I approached their MD to clarify their position, he said they have a boy from school who was doing their marketing and it was his fault, I asked for the name of the school and guess what “silence”!! Speaks volumes doesn’t it
