Like "The Purge" but for sales.. 1 day a year where you can say whatever you want to prospects

Hey friends - I'm new here, go easy on me ๐Ÿ˜…


So, when I'm physically talking to prospects in our pipeline, I'm typically selling contracts north of 15k.. but we have a self-serve starter product on our website that's $59 a month. It's the bane of my existence. From time to time, I get a tire kicker tell me "actually, I'm just going to start with that [starter] plan and work my way up" (I knowโ€”an issue for another day).


Well, got another one today after going through a few calls. Totally fine, but they wanted a contract, legal and infosec review ๐Ÿคก (for $59).


So it got me thinking... wouldn't it be nice if I could just tell the prospect what I really thought of their request?


Proposal: 1 day a year where sales people can say whatever they want to prospects with no repercussions ๐Ÿ™Œ


Thoughts? (I hope I offer some comedic relief for a Monday)

It would definitely be cathartic. But also probably devastating for business. Lol

option 1: "I know you are on my website, I know that you are opening my emails, just push me out and say no or stop yanking my chain buddy!"

option 2: **you know what goes here**

options 3: (in a terminator voice) "fuck you asshole"

How many times will you call a prospect after they don't answer the first time? At what frequency? I typically don't make a lot of repeat calls, just call with volume consistently and try to catch folks at the right time...
