Have you found vendors to be particularly aggressive during the COVID-19 crisis?

Sales, Customer Success, Culture One thing that has been very surprising to me--there's been quite a bit of chatter about it on the social outlets--is that the vendors that have been contacting me in every way, shape, or form, trying to capitalize on this pandemic. I have never had so many sales pitches come to me through LinkedIn. There are also these cold calls that keep happening and going to my office phone. I have tried to be very gracious to vendors all the time, because we're all just squirrels trying to get our nut. I want to make sure that I can support people where I can because I want a wide audience and want to hear all inputs. But there was one day where I received 89 sales pitches in my inbox and LinkedIn. They were all trying to monopolize on the COVID-19 situation.
