Would you like to buy a satellite TV system?

Robocalls are, perhaps, the cheapest ways to advertise, but they're also one of the least effective.

If robocalls were effective, don't you think all those companies you see advertising on TV would be using them?


  • Here's a joke I ripped off and paraphrased from a political cartoon I saw...

    Why is McCain using robo-calls?

    Because all the humans are working for Obama.

  • That's pretty good.

    I was just struck today at how much attention these are getting (mostly because of content) relative to the TV ads which have the real effect.

    On the other hand, every article written on process takes up space and keeps the race where it is.
