Selling, what, where, when?

Posted on Thu, 18 Nov 2004 at 4:58



Knock on the door: You have heard, "You need to talk to Joe however he is in a staff meeting, leave your card, I'll see that he gets it. You never hear from Joe.

Phone for appointment: You have heard, "You have reached the office of Joe, however he is away from his desk, leave a message at the beep and Joe will return your call. Joe never calls.

Mail a Brochure: You have done this, marked it attention, Joe. You follow up with a phone call to see if Joe received the brochure, Joe is still away from his desk, You knock on the door again and Joe is still in a meeting. I'm running in circles.

Question: Can anyone tell me how to get to Joe??? Oh yess, I have tried e-mail but still no Joe. Can you tell me how you get to Joe?

Thanks

I have found that when "Joe" can't be reached,it's because Joe doesn't want to be reached.There are people out there that don't deal well with salesmen,and there is no way you can get to Joe.Your only hope is that Joe will contact you when he needs the product you are selling.I don't waste my time with people I can't get in touch with.There are too many businesses out there to spend time chasing Joe.
