Mr. Telemarketer-The Devil Made Me Do It

By
Real Estate Agent with Integrity Real Estate Group

Mr. Telemarketer-The Devil Made Me Do ItWe've all had those moments.  The phone rings and the friendly voice on the other end introduces themselves and asks how your day is going.   Then the pitch starts.  In this case I'm not even sure what company Mr. Telemarketer was representing but the pitch was obviously canned.

Telemarketer:  Would you like to dominate your market? 

Me:                  Why of course I would.

Telemarketer:   Did you know that you could dominate your market with Social Media?

Me:                  I'm wondering before you called me to help me dominate my market with social media did you do any research?

Telemarketer:   What do you mean, research on you?

Me:                 Yes research on me.

Telemarketer:  Why?

Me:                 Because I'm the Queen of Social Media (honestly those were the words that came out of my mouth)

Telemarketer:   stammerrrrrr......

Me:                  Nice talking to you. Click.

I try to be nice to telemarketers but sometimes they just say something that shows how little time they spend scrubing their call lists.  Yes it was rude but the devil made me do it.

Wonder how the rest of his calls went today?

Lori-I have told one company if they call me again, on a number registered on the Do Not Call list, I'm ready to report them.  Let's see if they take the hint.

Cindy~That really is priceless, I've  had similar experiences with the marketers while half listening that they haven't done a bit of research on me or my online marketing. Thanks for the post.
