Thank you for taking the time...

Some­times you have to won­der why almost all con­sumers write the same no thank you” email and let­ters to sales­men. Is there a book about the things to say and not to say to a sales­man on the mar­ket that I am miss­ing? This is how you know you lost a sale when you read the fol­low­ing 6 words of the first sen­tence, Thank you for tak­ing the time…” I don’t think I have ever read those 6 words end­ing this way, “…we’d love you to do the job!” Instead it ends, “…but we’ve decid­ed to go with anoth­er…” I like to write the obvi­ous at times, which is why I’m post­ing this! Maybe a con­sumer will read this post and come up with some­thing new and dif­fer­ent like mak­ing the sales­per­son real­ly won­der what he or she is try­ing to say! Hey! a blog is short for weblog, so writ­ing a jour­nal that is not real impor­tant is fun some­times. Give it a try…write some­thing fun on your blog today and watch your stress lev­el be GONE!
