Ah, technology. Friend and foe.
And eater of e-mails.
We were down on Thursday and Friday —
— website AND email system.

In sales? Then you’ve got to know these shocking statistics (and more): 80% of sales are made on the fifth to twelfth contact…but 48% of sales people never follow up beyond the first contact.
Let me tell you about my morning: I have four kids and NONE of them wanted to go to school today. There were tears, there were tirades, school buses were missed. I was half an hour late for work and when I arrived, I asked my boss if he had any whiskey stashed in a drawer somewhere. He did not. It’s been a very disappointing morning.
Let me tell you about my week: NOTHING worked. I’m trialling new email service providers and I’m not happy with any of them. That’s good information (time to move on!), sure, but it takes a lot of woman-hours to test them out…uploading contacts, segmenting, drafting new campaigns, testing, testing, testing, sending, sending, sending, failing, failing, failing.
Let me tell you about my month: see above. It’s basically the same story.
So: A lot of activity, very little achievement. Or so it seems. There is, of course, an antidote…and here it is.
Enthusiasm, energy, people-skills, charm. Yep, it takes a special breed to be a great salesperson…so maybe your next hire should be a dog.
