^^^^LMFAO

I bet you didn't tell her that her mother needed a facia lift.. Laughing

I'll get my coat!

Telesales are a bit like making love to a beautiful woman...nine times out of ten you get dumped, but the tenth time you hit pay dirt, so to speak. Laughing

I'm off out now. The DG salesman is due any minute.

I used to do teleresearching 2 or 3 years ago. It was mainly for political opinion polls because at the time, there was some political turbulence with regards to gay marriage, religion and the likes. Didn't receive a lot of abuse about it, actually, I was received and at many times, I was given a callback time because the people wanted to participate in it. I got tired of it, and I moved on...

What always irks me is people who knock my door (I'm both ex directory and on the TPS, so I never get cold calls) claiming not to be selling anything, then go into their script to try to get me to switch phone/gas/electricity provider. And the ones that carry on even when I tell them I'm not interested really annoy me. I had one guy get really bitchy when I told him I'd researched all the providers before choosing mine and his company's wasn't anywhere near the best deal. I did have one phone call on my mobile phone offering me a contract phone. I use a pay as you go service because I use my phone strictly for emergencies and can make a 5 credit last 3 or 4 months. Pointing that out got him to hang up on me pretty quickly.

Teleresearch is probably received a bit better than marketing I would think.

Hi,
As far as I am concerned, my phone is for MY use, (I pay the bill) not some a-hole trying to promote religion, a political party, bank card or anything else.
If they phone me, it is at their own peril. I am generally not too rude, but dispose of them in short order.
Regards.

99% of these so-called 'research' calls are in fact sales calls. They just ask lots of impertinent questions first and then a few days/weeks later they come back and tell you you've been selected to participate in a once in a lifetime holiday resort timeshare scheme.

^^^ I always answer the TAC ones. I have no problem with conducting surveys for public bodies if I have time. I usually don't qualify for whatever reason, but it's fun saying

Question: "how often do you drink and drive?"

Answer: "shouldn't that be, how often do I not drink and drive?" Very Happy

^^^ I guess opinion polls must be conducted one way or another, and though they have a purpose they're not really for sales. Sometimes I used to answer market research ones and try to throw a spanner in the works for their statistics - ie: how many times a week do you drink xx? Answer: hmmm.... about 43 times.

Sometimes these market research ones would lead to you being able to do some direct research, which was normally eating different types of chips for an hour, filling in stuff and then getting a few bucks worth of grocery vouchers, which was handy when I was a student.

As Roz Doyle just said on 'Frasier' this morning when 'Bulldog' was working his charm : "I'd rather chop my right arm off and eat it."

Invading peoples privacy is not my bag. Unless they invite me to do so.

Have any of you felt like you can't sell anything, and wondered why? I am one of those. One of the questions I've asked myself is: "Do they think I'm scamming them?"

So I always disliked sales jobs, but do appreciate good salesmen that ask what I am looking for, and deliver. Like many on this thread, I just don't understand why salespersons have to be rude. It just makes their job harder for them, and their colleagues.

Those of you who are successful in sales have my undying envy.

Scam artists are a different ball game altogether.
