Before you log into WR for another day of commission farming, ask yourself this question

Is it truly worthwhile for me to sit on the internet posting about video games, Android vs iOS, or crypto for (roughly) ten cents a commission point or would my time be better spent on picking up the fucking phone and actually closing some deals?


If you're really making more money posting annoying spam that nobody gives a single fuck about over selling for your company, please go get a job in marketing or customer service because you are definitely not a closer. Last time I checked this place was called the War Room, not the Little Bitch Room.


Thanks.

Iโ€™ve had more random crtl+v shit comments tossed on old threads these last few days than Iโ€™ve ever seen before. If you are going to comment, please for the love of fuck write a full sentence and justify your thoughts. Nobody wants to get notifications that you wrote โ€œwowโ€ or โ€œthisโ€ on the 10th post in a row. Stop. Please.

You also donโ€™t need to comment 5 separate comments on every thread/reply. See what I did there? A space. Two thoughts, one comment.ย If you are replying to different people that is fine.

"wow...this... makes a lot of sense.." It gets annoying. I don't reply or post as much as I used to because it has been a lot of crap to filter through to get to the good stuff.ย

Yup. And polls now seem to be being used as a convenient way for people to spew whatever inane question that pops into their head at any given day.

I am all for making older threads trend again but only if you have good quality information to add. Otherwise it's creepy.

Also the next person that makes a thread about toilets/what happens in the toilet or whacking off is getting Kahlua bottled in the face.

To be honest for an XDR that was looking forward to high quality advise and interaction with killers Iโ€™ve been somewhat disappointed. I feel as though I need to sift through a bunch of schmucks talking about completely random nonsense before getting to some quality advice and topics. Donโ€™t get me wrong I love to talk about something other than work but damnโ€ฆ

I haven't had any Kahlua yet today and the SDR under my desk did a poor job at polishing my shoes this morning so I'm pricklier than a saguaro cactus right now.

Haha...Just kidding. I personally like some of the random postings on here... I think having this as a place to vent sometimes helps taking little mental breaks.

I also HATE someone making 3 or 4 comments in a row. This is not a text thread. Put it all in one message

That's one of the first posts I ever made...#vintagecoupsageslikewine. I would argue that knowing the general age demographic of the forum is relevant...but anyway.ย 

I don't mind off topic posts but at least make them interesting and relevant to most people. This isn't the place to ask about niche hobbies and topics.

We're in sales, when we got our first jobs didn't all of our sales managers teach us not to ask closed ended questions? You don't learn enough from them.ย

Are you saying that no one here shares my unhealthy love for D&D and obsession over dice? I'm heartbroken!ย 

For real though, I planned on using the WR to share ideas with other trainers and SDRs, but I'm mostly getting the feeling of "everyone's here for Amazon gift cards and not actually discussing jack shit".ย 

And of course, there's the "I can waste time here rather than calling because this is sales related!" bullshit. Just like we sometimes do on LI.ย

Love the thoughts here. To be honest I havent checked what my comission is even worth and dont really plan on it. I'm here to try and learn from sales people that are better than I, and take those learning to my team. I could give two shits about someones favorite movie.

Rising tide lifts all boats, share valuable insights and we all get better. If youre here to waste time, go check out LinkedIn and ponder your life with "inbound sales role"

Better put some 'spect on funcoupons name!ย  Completely agreed.ย  It all starts with the quality of sales reps we are referring to on the website.ย  I'd also ask, "is this person going to be a spam hound or post legit content?"ย ย 

True story - Funcoupons and I would be besties outside of war because after this post, I'm asking him if he wants to build bunkbeds

Good to know.ย  Well then, now in this hypothetical scenario - It's more important for the bunk bed project if you are:ย 

A. A carpenter

Andย 

B. a quiet sleeper

Looks and closing deals have nothing to do with a structurally sound bunk bed and the sound experience while you're sleeping.ย ย

Don't you ever take a 5 min break to blow off steam? WR is the same as twitter / IG / Facebook - pick your poison. Why do we care what others do. I love when my competition is all over socials, love it. Means they aren't talking to my buyers

I watch channels like Sidemen and think jesus why can't I do that. But as I just commented on another post, this forum has helped me achieve about 10% more mullar purely on advice. Lots of 'Here and there bullshit' but also lot of genuine advice from the big dogs.ย
