How to Avoid Telemarketers

Nowadays, there exists many telemarketing companies and their persistent phone calls can be a nuisance to many. No two companies run the same way, but many will imitate an identical tactic. By working yourself around these tactics, you can avoid being a victim of telemarketers.

If a telemarketer gets through your phone, they will put a ton of effort to sell their product on the first call. Among telemarketers, there exists the “Three Nos” rule whereby they will continue persuading the customer until they have said “no” three times during the phone call. It is because they are trying to wear you down and run out of reasons to decline their offer. To overcome this, just firmly keep declining them and they will eventually realize that they are wasting their precious time.

If a purchase was not made on the first phone call, telemarketers will record everything you have said throughout the call and suggest calling you again in the near future. The rapport establish during the initial call makes selling to a call back easier for them. This call backs can occur throughout a few weeks, and sometimes the customer would make a purchase just to stop them from calling.

If a telemarketer does not reach you, they will mark your contact as “no answer” and will likely call again in a few days. If the telemarketer has called your mobile phone, it would be wise to block the number if you do not intend to make a purchase. At times, you would not be able to recognize the phone number belonging to a telemarketer. That is were a phone number lookup would be useful, just lookup the number in any phone number directory or phone number lookup website you can find and see if it warrants you to block the number.

By following these easy steps, you might just save yourself some trouble of continuously declining uninteresting telemarketers or have them blocked in the first place.
