This is Telecom Sales Now

So this is the new telecom sales approach. Spam everyone you know in a mass email. (I would like to know how Renee got my email address). Add a bunch of buzz words like DR, BC, and fiber in a sentence that barely makes sense. Then stick a signature file on it that is 3x as long as the email. WTH?!

Sales is all about the PROSPECT not the company. A better approach would have been to say that you were having a seminar at the offices of twt on DR/BC, would you like to attend. Then when people replied NO, you could have individually contacted prospects to ask if they wanted individual attention on their BC Plan.

Good Morning,

I was hoping to set a time with you to discuss your current voice and internet network and maybe even look at a fiber connection to assist you with a cost savings, upgrade, disaster recovery and your business continuity.

Please let me know a day and time that works best for you so we can do a brief analysis of your services.

Thank you in advance.
