The Proactive Buyer’s Pledge

This is a push-back against the barrage of marketing that has been beating down on us.  I’m suggesting somebody should start a list of people who pledge NEVER to respond to aggressive marketing contacts (phone, email, etc.) and to only buy from companies to whom they reached out themselves.  It’s sort of like a do-not-call list but more intentional – it is a pledge to never do business with anyone doing aggressive marketing.  “Not only do not call me, but I will never ever buy from you again if you do.”

To be fair, there should be a parallel list of businesses that pledge NOT to contact you.  Then, you can start there when you wish to buy something.  Perhaps they would be willing to underwrite the cost of the website.

I really think somebody could make this a viral website.  I hope somebody goes for it.
