Day 100

It’s day 100. That means I have 100 days of writing these posts and have added 100 posts to my blog. Wowza.

I don’t understand how a sales organization is successful when people don’t answer the phone. How do you make sales if you don’t talk to the people who are coming to you asking you to sell them your product?

When asked “Do you want this or that?” and you answer “Thanks”, that’s a bit frustrating, unless you actually want both. Then it’s just unclear.

If you have an interview set up with an awesome company that you want to work with, make sure your phone is working, your voicemail box is empty, and that you follow the hell up with them. Otherwise, you will lose the opportunity permanently.

    One hundred? wow. I’m impressed! Congratulations! And you happened to hit on a topic that bugs the heck out of me — people who don’t answer their phone. Another pet peeve — leaving a message, then having a person call back who doesn’t bother listening to the message, but instead calls to find out what you wanted. Sheesh!

    • Matt Bernier

      If I call back without listening, it’s immediately and I let someone know that I thought it was better to just call back right away.

      • terrinakamura

        Good to know!

  • Tom Laing

    +100 well done. I don’t understand how a successful sales organisation doesn’t correct things when a sales goes wrong. I had two in the last couple of months. Firstly the bike I still don’t know who I’m dealing with all email and no phone and secondly online sales with no contact phone or email. Weird business.

  • Duncan

    100 ….well done… that is 100 more than me…. what are you hoping to achieve here???

    • Matt Bernier

      I am just having fun recording my thoughts and posting them on my blog.
