Have you ever had a call like that where the caller rings to say “I’m ringing to confirm our appointment for next Monday.” You’ve never heard of the person before, you’ve never spoken to the company and you really are not interested? Why do sales people think that this tactic will work? Are we so busy in todays world that enough people think they’ve made a mistake and go ahead and take the appointment just out of guilt?
I’m sorry – but this is just plain wrong. If you have enough time to call people like this and execute a “strategy” like this then you really are in need of serious help. Both at a business level and at a morals level.
Ok – my rant is over – surely there are better ways to get an appointment than to try to guilt someone into it?
