2012 – The end of the world as we know it?

We have all heard the many horror stories about how the world is going to end in December; perhaps there will be a mass coronal ejection from the sun, perhaps Betelgeuse will go supernova, perhaps we will be hit by an asteroid, perhaps the polarity of the earth’s magnetic field will reverse and so on.…

A passion or an obsession? both we think

We worked over a lot of this Christmas on a database. The work took twice as long as we anticipated due to the basic data tidying we needed to do before we could even start to check for duplicates. If you have a data list which is being added to by lots of different people,…

Conscientious is a posh word for picky but we love it!

We became freelancers because we felt we can “do it better”. We like to think we’re clever people so rather than working for someone and becoming a drone who whacks out the calls without having to use our brains, we wanted to do the work we’re good at, in our way, PROPERLY – the only…

hang on…isn’t December a bad month to call, and the start of January pointless? Depends if you think 6 leads in 1 day is bad…

We got 5 leads (appointments) in 1 day on 22nd December and already have another meeting request for January off the back of calls and emails made and sent that week as well – and that’s just for one client. Our clients that stick with us and trust our judgement and expertise, we prove it…

New testimonial on our proposal writing work

On the forth day before Christmas, we shall give to thee…lots and loads of leads!

Today’s calls have resulted in 5 gooooood leads! I have written a number of blogs about it being utter rubbish that December is a bad time to call. Well to any naysayers my work today has just proved it. And I don’t mind shouting about it. For the client I am working for today, I…

How to protect your intellectual property – things you say!

In this ever increasing world of social media, blogs and networking sites, are you concerned about intellectual property? We’ve noticed it ourselves and have had a few peoples blogs resemble ours once we’ve written them…but at least we can show we wrote it first! Also, it’s probably worth considering that telephone marketing / cold calling…

Our opinion on telemarketers generally

There’s a right way and a wrong way to go about telemarketing. There are wide boys, and the scripted ones. It’s just not the way to get results. I am probably one of the WORST people that a company can phone to try to sell something to. Those who are all fake and act like…
