I've got an ethics questions that I'd like to run by you guys.
I've been reading the web designers business kit and it's been inspiring me a lot. (i'm on chapter 5 right now and don't plan to do anything until I'm done reading it)
I'm developing my client and potential client database. A lot of the people I'm putting in my potential client database already have sites designed and maintained by competing companies.
I'd like to send out a direct mail campaign just saying basically -
"Hello, Here's what we do and we would love to work with you should you ever require our services." I'm not out to draw blood but would like to be in the forefront should these potential clients ever choose or consider switching service providers.
I realize that this IS part of business and may be a stupid question BUT being the new guy - I don't want to go pissing off my competitors and creating a bad name in the community (although this will likely happen if I score their business).
I would love to get some serious and constructive feedback on this.
