If you’re like me, you’re probably receiving long-distance telemarketing telephone calls throughout the business day. Some of mine are robo calls and the others are live calls. Most of the time I answer them and sometimes I let my voice mail pick them up.
One Friday I got two long-distance calls – one I answered live and another one I let roll over to voice mail. the first one turned out to be a Fort Wayne company needing a network device programmed for one of their new locations. The work was something I wasn’t able to do, and I explained to them my specialty is computer repair.
The second one was a transplanted family from Illinois needing a MacBook laptop repaired. Fortunately, they left a message so I could call them back and coordinate a repair.
From these two telephone calls I’ve learned not to assume every long-distance telephone call is a telemarketer. What is your experience with long-distance telephone calls? Are most of yours telemarketers?
