And so this kind of brings up another point of how important it is to fill out your own form. Every once in a while, test it test the same client. I did this just out of curiosity and the message they were sending back to someone who submitted a form is This is what you sent us. It was just some blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. I’m like, I sent it a director sales and like, you realize when a potential customer is submitting a form, this is what they’re seeing. And he was livid, Alvin did it? That is nice and sentence, we will be back with you shortly. Yeah, you know, that’s all you need. Now, you could do stuff like All kinds of great stuff follow us on Facebook.

I like I have our marketing meeting tomorrow and I could already tell you, I’m going to be like, we should adjust our submission Peach. Yeah. Instead of thank you for your submission, putting a wealth of other things there.
