OK, this week has topped them all, I just got my 5th phone call this week, and it’s only Wednesday, using a pre-recorded telephone marketing message. (IE, the lazy mans telemarketing!)
Two of the messages were in what sounded like Spanish, which might mean something to me if I spoke the language, the next one was about getting my septic tank serviced for summer… Yep you guessed it, I don’t have a septic tank.
This followed by learn computers in your spare time, and they’ll give me a free computer, for paying them way more than needed for their DVD video training.
And the kicker was my car dealer, using a pre-recorded message, in a buddy buddy style, we haven’t seen you in a while and we miss you, could you call us to schedule and have your car serviced… I was hoping for a discount coupon code, or something, but nothing, they just miss me and would I give them my money.
The funny thing about this one is, I already have an appointment with them to handle a recall notice on my car, have an oil change, and it detailed… guess how I feel 🙁
We’ll, I’m putting this one under the Training Category, because I think there’s a lesson we can all take away from this.
Until next time,
PS. If you use these old style phone recording marketing methods, please look into Social Media Marketing, I beg you!
