As I really don't seem to have anything better to do than surf around visiting various real estate agent/broker and mortgage broker websites, I continue to be amazed at how many sites are set to blare music out.
I might be wrong, but this seems to be the default setting for at least one particular vendor's real estate agent/broker websites.
Now, this may be just my opinion, but I can't stand it when I visit a website and my computer starts spewing music at me. Perhaps I have control issues and just want my computer to do what I tell it to do. Perhaps I just don't want to hear muzak filling my office/house. Perhaps I am a bit upset that some website decided to ruin whatever I may have been actually choosing to listen to on my computer.
Whatever the reason, I typically act quickly to regain audible supremacy over my surroundings. To achieve my preferred sound of quiet computer hum / white noise, I usually do one of two things depending on where my mouse cursor is currently located:
- Hit that little "X" in the top right corner of the browser window
- Press the green arrow near the top left of my browser window
Regardless of which action I choose to take, that particular website has lost me as a visitor. There is one guarantee that comes with each lost visitor - they aren't going to be a lead any time soon.
