Maybe it’s our education system, or it could be the heat. Either way the vending machine mayhem is out of control. On Friday I got two pearlers from some entrepreneurially-minded readers, so I figure it’ll be easier to publish questions and answers for everyone to read.
The first email:
“I have read your article about vending machines more specifically about some ones experience at the exhibition & then obviously punting multi-vending – Firstly the article has been on your website for more than a year and is a bit out of touch and old & then of course my question to you is this a paid for “blog” or just a real article?”
Our response: Thanks for your enquiry. Ideate is not a real article, nor is it a blog. It’s actually an undercover North Korean operation, and it’s definitely paid for. You however, are the real article, and we love you. Yours sincerely, your biggest fans. The Ideate team.
My name is Edward Ghigea , I am from Romania manager of Amaryo Trade Company.
My company have coffe vending machines , drink vending mashines and sncks vanding machines in few towns in Romania.
We are interesing to extend our business.
Please send me your offer about vending machines new and used.
Our response: Thanks. the Venezuelan sub-ordinate did not return to us by pigeon. We can only see the light, but ultimately hope to include your courteous songs of liberation. Yours truly, Bob.
Methinks we need a different strategy…
Any vending machine businesses want to chat to us about a joint venture, drop me a line. Seriously.
Someone (other than us) has to help these people.
