Cold Call Reenactment: Do Not Call List

What wins: an unstoppable force or an immovable object? This paradox comes from Han Feizi in 3rd century BC when - you guessed it - a SALESPERSON was trying to sell a shield that could defend against any spear and a spear that could pierce any shield. Let’s just say he didn’t close the deal, but that sales savage battled every bullshit objection his prospect threw at him until he was place on a government do-not-call list. He would go on to blame his sales pitch paradox on his SDR, marketing, and Ops team.


If you have cold calls that you'd like @GeneralCorp  to reenact, email unsubscribe@corporatebro.com 🙏

Why didn't the angry guy just hang up from the beginning?

Mad respect to the sales rep.

Because he's frustrated with his shitty life and needs a punching bag. Wife probably left his sorry, small dick energy self years ago and someone like that definitely doesn't have friends.

Oh yeah that sales rep is amazing, the endured till the end, and that prospect was just taking it all out of him just becuase he can. I feel bad for the prospect and would love to invite that rep for a drink or two!

I just got a "remove me from your email list" from a CMO/CTO. Is it the same guy?

My favorite is when I send an actual personalized, real email to a single  customer and they say "unsubscribe".

I mean to be fair, that pitch wasn’t great, but I’m sure the Pitcher kills by blasting out a bazillion calls with no regard for human life.

wow, I really want to know what happened in that guys work life to react to cold calls like that. I'd also love to listen to the hypocracy behind that marketer probably going into a meeting after that and utilizing cookies, drip campaigns, and intrusive ads.

The fact he kept yelling for the Salesperson to hang up when he could've just as easily clicked has me dead.
