The second MagicMethod Classroom Chat on Tuesday, April 29th honed in some more on “Handling the Gatekeeper” and there were about thirty-five people in attendance. Several participated, asking some very good questions.
MagicMethod Classroom Chat Best Remark of the Day
"She'll think u know Shirley." - Andrea
Maureen Sharib Some people think that in order to engage a Gatekeeper you have to be her bosom buddy. Anyone know what I mean?Have you ever picked up the phone and some stranger, all gushy sticky warm, says "Hiya, Maureen howya' feelin' today?" This makes my blood boil ‘cause I know this character couldn't give a rat's ass about how I'm feeling and he's putting me on the spot as if I should know who he is.
Recruiting Animal When you call a company back the next day and get the same gatekeeper. You have a very distinct voice. Don't they recognize you?
Maureen Sharib Okay, we'll take a break on ice breakers and turn to Animal's question. IF I have to call into another company on a second (or third, or fourth) day - and it happens - chances of me getting the same Gatekeeper are about 50 -50. Any other phones sourcers here agree w/ this?
