I cold-called this gentleman a couple months into my first SaaS role. He was livid and told me he wouldn't do business with me.
I emailed him apologizing. This was his reply:
I work in sales, so I know the tricks.
Calling and saying "Hi, this is *****" is a deception. You're trying to engage me in a conversation but disguising the purpose of your call.
You might sucker some people into a yes this way, but not someone successful, with the resources and power to get you a promotion or change your company.
Also, it's dishonest, a trick.
Careers are not built on this. You should reconsider your job and your direction.
If he works in sales, then what the hell is this video?
