Trickery is for magicians, not sales pros

I received a telephone call from a bubbly lady introducing herself as Crystal, wishing me a happy new year and asking how I enjoyed my time off. I couldn’t place Crystal, but I was trying to be pleasant thinking maybe I had forgotten previously meeting her.

Then she asked if I was familiar with her temp agency and the services they provide businesses. That did it. The trickery she used trying to start a business relationship prompted me to tell her “not interested” and quickly end the call.
Be honest and up-front with prospects. Trickery is no way to begin what you hope will be a long-term professional relationship.
