Happy April 1st or April Fools Day!
“Salesology or scamology...i refuse to do it!”.... so says a Supermedia consultant from the east.
“Our division’s rise in corporate sales ranks, can be credited to “Scamology.” Fellow salepeople have found a way to manipulate the Supermedia Identity Bundles presentation for quick sales. The program guarantees the customer a certain number of leads per month and it is inticing, so they sign up. Only later the client discovers what he really purchased was clicks on Superpages.com, not the real calls that he wanted. He doesn’t get any results from that. They don’t pay and go delinquent.
You’re always writing about the scams in this place. It is true. Some of my other co-workers have found their way around the credit system. One of the top reps in the division is doing it by writing up high risk accounts on a cell phone number in non high risk headings. He will take a handyman and find one thing he does that isn’t high risk and key it there. He guarantees 50 leads a month. They sign up, it doesn’t work because they really aren’t under the right heading, then never pay. But the rep gets paid, his numbers look great and the company rings up the bogus sale. Salesology or scamology...i refuse to do it!”....
