Horror Stories from Linkedin Marketing Companies
Today I want to mix things up.
I am 100% certain everyone who joins the hangouts has some fun (and horror) stories.
Let’s share. Why?
When you encounter crazy, bizarre, couldn’t make it up situations (and *cough* people) it’s nice to know you’re not alone in dealing with them. And I like learning from the mistakes other people make.
I’ll start with a quick one, which I have anonymized for privacy.
Campaign details: Finding business owners interested in selling their company.
- Us: Joe I’m looking at Joe’s Shoes and am wondering if you have any interest in selling. I’m working with a number of buyers looking to buy a shoe business and, as best I can tell, yours would be a good fit. Any interest?
- Joe: Go *F* yourself
- Client: See’s response and tells my team to reply ‘I wish I could!’
- Us: Decides to not send client’s suggested reply and instead thanks Joe for his time.
- Joe…Three Days Later: Actually I think I might want to sell (gives email and sets up phone call).
I’m thinking this could be the best meeting…ever.
