I've found a new way to make money. By charging sales people who call me.
If you were the one calling my house at 8 PM this evening and recognize this phone call:
You: Hi my name is YourName, I’m calling from SomeCapital Company AB.
Me: Hi! Where did you say you were calling from again?
You: SomeCapital Company AB.
Me: Aha, right. And what’s your postal address?
You: Ehmn, it’s Kungsgatan XYZ.
Me: Right. And what’s your organization number?
You: Ehmn, I don’t know that.
Me: OK. Then I suggest you call me back when you do so I know where to send the invoice.
Me: Great. Bye! (click)
… five minutes later…
You: Hi, this is YourName again from SomeCapital Company AB.
Me: Uhmn, hi.
You: It’s 556677-8899 (I’m just making that up, I did write it down somewhere. I take you very seriously.)
Me: Great! And who should I send the bill to?
You: Uhmn, wait.
… a few seconds later …
You: Alexander Somedude.
Me: I usually practice 30 days as terms of payment. Is that OK?
Me: Great. I’ll send the invoice them.
You: OK, do that.
Me: Great. Bye bye!
If you recognize this, and it was you on the phone, please call back! I totally forgot to ask what you were selling!
To the rest of you: yes, she actually called back with her employers billing information. This new source of revenue of mine is just great!
