    Hi Rob Woodbridge & Asif Khan
    I have not had many opportunities to check out what’s going on in the marketing world. But today I found your web site and it caught my eye because my son is the person that is running BeanstalkData.com. So I had to check out your webcast and I was very pleased with your commentary.
    Asif Khan you really understood his product and what it can do and what it means which is great. There are so many possibilities and ways this can benefit the business world.

  • Thanks very much for your comments and congratulations to your son for setting up Beanstalk! It is a service whose time has come!
