I got Pitched and Loved it.
Don’t get me wrong I applaud the guy for trying and sticking with it heck he even slowed down for a second or two. But the fact remains I don’t know him, never have I seen him talking in the community, or chats so to me this was a pick up line and pitch ( could be wrong)
But think of a car sales man/ Woman doing the same thing and look at the time line. we will call Him MR X for the sake of not hurting any ones feelings but to get a POINT across that Skype is good for meeting people and communicating and I was guilty of pitching like this too at one Point .
So Here we go …………………….
[1:33:41 PM] ***MR.X***: Hi James, How’s it going?
[1:34:04 PM] James Dias: its going good and you
[1:34:14 PM] ***MR.X***:: Yeah all good thanks 🙂
[1:34:37 PM] ***MR.X***:: Now you’ll have to excuse me, what site do you own again?
[1:34:55 PM] James Dias: the Traffic dance And IT
[1:35:20 PM] ***MR.X***:: Yeah that was it 🙂 sorry I had forgot.
[1:35:28 PM] James Dias: thats ok
[1:35:35 PM] ***MR.X***:: I work with SOME BIG NAME and we have a few traffic sites.
[1:35:58 PM] ***MR.X***:: Product #1, Product #2, Product #3, Product #4 etc
[1:37:03 PM] ***MR.X***:: Would you be interested in trading permanent ad slots? we can use autoresponders, login ads etc it should be a good swap for both of us.
[1:37:29 PM] ***MR.X***:: We’re currently looking for traffic to Product #3 again which pays residual commissions
[1:41:32 PM] James Dias: I have to tell you im a little bugged. You forgot what sites I own, then want to pitch me on sending traffic to a site. That’s a little more than a tough sales pitch
How about we start over what do you say ?
[1:44:53 PM] ***MR.X***:: Sure, no problem 🙂 it wasn’t intended to be a sales pitch. I was just looking for ways to help each other out. JV’s have worked well for us in the past and I remembered you owned a couple of traffic sites. It would be an equal swap if that’s something you’re interested in.
[1:45:17 PM] ***MR.X***:: BTW I saw Sassy at Traffic Dance so thought you must have moved on
[1:48:13 PM] James Dias: Sassy is the boss I can’t run and manage 2 sites there is not enough time and focus to go around
So she remains the Lady in charge I just pay the bills
I have my defenses up all the time cause you wouldn’t believe the amount of people telling me that I need this or I should do that I like getting to know people and to work with people I know LIKE and trust and that cant happen in under 120 seconds you know what i mean?
[1:50:34 PM] ***MR.X***:: Yeah I know exactly you mean. I understand. How about you just have a play with a couple of our sites and then contact me if you want to set something up? that’s cool. Do you have an account at Product #3 again?
[1:51:23 PM] James Dias: I don’t have an account at any of the ones you listed above
[1:51:37 PM] ***MR.X***:: Do you use Product #5 or Product #6?
[1:53:18 PM] James Dias: nope I do not. I own programs so not much of a need for them as my focus is the programs and I try not to send too much to the members base as I feel that When something important OR something works for me i will recommend it to them.
[1:57:07 PM] ***MR.X***:: Well if you have any ideas for cross promotions just let me know. I’ll leave it with you. You’re welcome to test Product #3 yet Again for a couple of weeks and I’ll create you a JV account. Your shout. Thanks for your time 🙂
[1:57:43 PM] James Dias: NO Problem have a good one
Keep in mind Im Not trying to judge this guy Im only trying to show what it looks like.
This person added me on November 5 2011 and the first time he contacted me was on February 2 2012
This reminded me of a video I watched the other day from Gary V he said is like a 19 year old boy trying to close on a date. (haunting )
Was this a lesson (YES) the lesson is know who you are talking to and get to know them personally too. Cause if he would have started the skype conversation with something like “Hey How is IT and the dance doing and Hows the wife and KIDS” I might have just opened my wallet and sent him some traffic too.
Know the people you are working with or No people will work with you
And that’s My Traffic exchange 2 cents
