A friend of mine had an encounter that surprised him, and me, the other day: a knock on the door turned out to be a salesman trying to get him to re-sign to Lovefilm, the subscription video service. (s AMZN)
Let me say that again: a door-to-door salesman.
I think that's a first, for me at least. While lots of internet services market heavily — television ads, radio spots, billboards, leaflets and print — I have never come across this sort of feet-on-the-street approach before.
