I get quite a few telemarketing calls these days and I am sure that many of you reading this post get them too. Now, if you are on this website, reading this post, you probably know what “1-800-PLUMBING” is all about. I have a major pet peeve that is the motivation for this post. I get calls from telemarketers or phone solicitors that assume I am a plumber. Now that makes a lot of sense “1-800-PUMBING”, must be a plumber. So when I get these calls I now ask the caller if they looked at our website. To that question, almost all of these callers reply no! I tell them to avoid wasting their time and my time, please go find the “1-800-PLUMBING” website and find out what we actually do. It is very easy to find and if I am in a good mood, which I am most of the time, I may even give them the web address: www.800plumbing.com Then I tell them to call me back once they understand what we do, if they believe it is still relevant to our business. Most of them never call back.
The point of this blog is that we have so much information out there right at our fingertips. Why do many people not use what is right within their reach? I don’t know. I believe that knowledge is power and the internet is the most powerful tool to get knowledge that mankind has ever had available.
Looking at this another way, I would say, “are you getting the results you desire?” If the answer is no, then take a look and see if there are tools that you are not using that could give you better results. Are there tools right at your fingertips that could help you achieve your goals, but you are just not using them? Are you doing your job a certain way because that’s how you have always done it that way?
Oh, and back to that telemarketer, I challenge you to look at the “1-800-PLUMBING” website and let me know you found the blog on using all the available tools to increase your level of success!Back To Top
