My first converstion with a robot
No, I’m not talking about a robo call, because I’ve dealt with those in another article. Actually, robo calls are getting more sophisticated. It’s getting harder and harder for me to tell if I’m speaking with a live human, those recordings are just that personable. I’m talking about humans that actually sound like robots. The other day, I told some guy reading a script that he needed to slow down, because I couldn’t understand him. I reassured him that I’d done telemarketing for years, that my husband was the top salesman at his job and that the reason we were not on the “do not call list” is because we respect the trade. It was useless. Nothing, and I mean nothing could get this poor guy to answer my question and get of that turnstyle script.
Hey reader, have you ever worked a telemarketing job like this? Some boiler room dive that had you mechanically reading some robotic script that brought you nothing but hang ups? Maybe your MLM or Networking Opportunity has you parroting out ineffective phrases to your prospects.
