I don't like to be "sold". I prefer to review information and contemplate it without distraction, then have the opportunity to ask questions.

I HATE being sold. I like being MARKETED TO! There is a big difference. You cannot sell someone and assume they are the right person for your service. We have seen big luxury brands fail "where they thought the demographics were perfect!" They were, but they had the wrong folks. A

I dont think anyone likes to be Sold, but we all like to buy if it is presented in a way that is attractive and looks advantageous to our needs.
Val - I don't like to be sold. Nobody has to tell me what I need. If I don't know of something, then I won't miss it.
I prefer to do my own research on things I know I am interested in, and I would also speak with friends about what they do, or have, that works for them.
No door knocking, phone calls, or email please. I already get too much of that.
I like to make the contact.... don't call me....I'll call you...
I do not appreciate the effort. Unless I have the immediate need, my ears become deaf.
Great question and for me depends on the product and my level of interest.
I prefer to receive things in the mail.
I personally do not like to be sold because I am aware of when someone is "selling" me. I often see new products here on Active Rain, from Inman or other various trend spotters. A third party endorsement or user review is also a way to get an idea of the product or service.
Constant phone calls and email are obnoxious and will cause me to NOT buy.
Good Friday morning Val. I would like the opportunity to make up my own mind, no high pressure.
Well, I do give a few seconds to telemarketers or any sales people, some are really good and I like to be engaged with a person of good negotiation/presentation skills.
Via a blog. I would sign up for their newsletter to get blogging updates. I would read their blog for a couple months, to get to know them and what they offer, then if I would make the decision. I've purchased many online courses this way. I followed the person's blog, liked what they had to say, liked them as a person, then after a few months, purchased what they had to offer...no pressure sales.
I wouldn't! If it was that good, I would hear about it from satisfied customers and then I would contact them.
Email is probably the best initial contact for me.
I don't want to be contacted. With the Internet I know where I can find anything I need when I need it.
I'd like to get an email with all the information I need.
It depends on the product and service and whether I have any interest in the first place.
email email email.... i think i made my point :)
We need to understand a few things first. REAL ESTATE AGENTS have no interest in learning anything new. What we call new is same old, same old wearing a new suit. Being mentally exhausted, and burnt on both ends all were really want and willing to pay for is simply how to do what I am currently doing, CHEAPER, FASTER, EASIER or BETTER.
Wrap you message around what resonates, and the medium you use will not matter.
Since your proposal is 'BCOME FOR EFFICIENT' that should mean make more money because of better processes.
I prefer you knock on my front door. You'll get my full attention.
For everyone else,,,,call your AR friends and lead ONE of them into making more money through improved efficiencies. Now you have a success story. Energize your affiliate program and you are off and running.
Someone on AR will inquire, "I just got a call from Val Evan Consulting, anyone have any experience with this consulting company?"
What is at the heart of this is NO ONE WANTS TO BE SOLD...but EVERYONE WANTS TO BUY. ....Like what Fred said.
I don't. I am inundated with calls and emails. I do my own research.
I would like to see the product or service in an ad then ,if I liked it, I would call the company or person that was selling the service.
