I may have asked this before but do they have a salesforce working the phones to drum up new business?  

I recently found out that they do have salespeople which was a surprise to me.

A friend of mine is an exec at an ad agency and they used to buy from Getty and a few other macro places. They now mostly use Istock because they were hit hard by the economy. She told me they get pretty regular calls from salespeople. I asked if she was sure they weren't from Getty and she said "nope, Istock".

No marketing = no business. Good grief.....I may have asked this before but do they have a salesforce working the phones to drum up new business?
A couple of months ago, they advertised for a marketing specialist and that job is not currently being advertised, so they may have hired same, or decided not to bother.
They also seem, for the first time in four years, no currently to be looking for "someone who can break our system".



I think they found someone who can break their system.

Isn't the new motto if it ain't broke fix it?

Even if they just stand up to the idiot who's pulling their strings and say, "You can't have good, fast AND cheap".
