@ginidietrich @catrinasharp ha - with the upcoming holiday, I couldn't help it.
@ginidietrich @lizreusswig because they have halloweenies!
@ginidietrich @lizreusswig What did the fish say when he ran into the wall? Dam.
@ginidietrich @lizreusswig Why can't ghosts have babies?
This is a smart concept for sales people to pick up anyway! Throw your audience a curve ball by knowing what they are tweeting about or sharing their content. In the most non-stalkerish way, know about what they want to talk about and they won't use all those "objections" you are taught to overcome. If you show that you care, there will be less of those silly objections. If I'm not the decision maker, I'm more willing to pass you along because you aren't trying to spit out an elevator pitch before I can get a word in. ha, I'm so glad I saw @ginidietrich's tweet a few minutes ago. This is great venting! haha
@ginidietrich @RebeccaTodd @belllindsay (trying not to picture a flesh grab). I think the more you know before hand definitely matters. It shows that you care about their interests, their business and you took time to understand what their needs possibly could be. I see it just like a job interview. Know before you go!
@TomMartin I find it very difficult to convince the "sales guys" or those with the mentality that cold calls "works" to use social media and to connect with prospects without shoving a sales pitch in their face. I find it very .. frustrating and challenging. Any suggestions on talking/motivating that person that has been cold calling the past 25 years and "it works"?
@jonmikelbailey @TomMartin I think it depends on the chemistry of the group. Some I find valuable and some I just find salesy and it is like "speed networking" in multiple infomercials. Headache! But I assume that if you make one or two valuable relationships, they are worth it.
@belllindsay @TomMartin @ginidietrich I love the humor that exists in the SpinSucks livefyre chats. I need them more often in my life.
@TomMartin @ginidietrich Actually, I am very picky about my toothpaste. Good point.
I'm late to the party but I'd like to say that I love this topic, hate cold calls & cannot wait until companies truly understand how important learning more about and connecting with the buyer is! I hope it comes sooner than later! Okay.. now to catch up!
Love the ideas in this article. Do you suggest creating the script ahead of time or letting the person speak freely? Or - maybe a little bit of both? I find it hard to get get co-workers comfortably in front of a camera.

@yvettepistorio @djwaldow @superdumb Me too! It is frustrating to work with those that think and act otherwise. Chaos ensues.
@djwaldow @belllindsay this can happen!
What about those emails with subject lines like "I'm sorry I sent you the wrong.." or "Whoops!" or "My mistake"... as a consumer they drive me nuts! I assume it is a form of re-mailing but I never open them to find out. Are those legit ways to get people to open, read and click through your emails? I am very curious about this. If this is legit, I will be just as shocked as the "ugly emails are okay" concept. It still bothers me.
@djwaldow @yvettepistorio I need to pay more attention to this. I hate CAPS! I'll be shocked if I search my email and I opened it. However, at this point you are a trusted brand so from a consumer's point of view, I just open it. I guess that is our goal, to share relevant content to have our consumers trust us, know our name and open our emails, even the subject line is in CAPS. Good Question Yvette.
@yvettepistorio @DwayneAlicie @djwaldow @catrinasharp I want to sign up for West Elm then.. ha! I love brands that do that well. Inspiration!
@BobtheGreenGuy I only forward to a friend if there is a coupon or really awesome content. I do not typically use the "forward to a friend" button though. I just use my email client.
