I wont use the word shameless and despicable, but i would say they think out of the box.

 

Take a second and think, if u r the owner of the business and your marketing team came out with this idea and you see conversion of sales numbers, that's what business is all about isn't it. Would you even think its shameless or despicable?

 

They have to think out of the box to get leads and convert to sales (if possible) they have to also come out with costs for the bouncing castle and all. End of day conversion numbers may not be enough to cover the costs for a small event like this.

 

Cut them some slacks, live and let live....

 

What a load of horse sh!t.

 

How come they are the only business to "think outta box" to use this tactic?

 

That's right. Because they are downright shameless and despicable.

 

Pui!

 

Why dont YOU yourself think for a second. Where are they and their disgusting bouncing castle 3 months on? Where are they now?

Normally if i meet those sales trying to stop me, esp for financial products, i would say

 

 

"Sorry i jobless"

Last time, an insurance guy approach me on the street and asked “Are you worried about the rising cost of health care in Singapore?” Sensing that he was trying to sell me a policy, I answered “No” n he was taken aback n remarked, “first I heard of someone not worried about healthcare costs!”

Never had an issue with vultures or the likes of one, just nod, smile and say "thank you, not interested" and walk off. So far none sunk their vampire tooth into my ankle to slow my steps. Think they saw the "coldness" in my eyes behind the smile.

 

With kiddos, be firm and stern and say "nope. No playing" on sighting of whatever bouncing castle.

 

I am very happy to say "No thanks" and will not feel less human. I rather they dun miss sinking their jaws, i mean claws on real prospects than waste time on me.

 

I find road shows like these usually for rookies or those just joined the trade. To thicken their skin, brush up on knowledge and handle difficult ppl. Thankless training but somehow the ones who made it usually develop ultra patience and thicker skin.

 

Once in a howling month, i will stop to chit chat and ask stupid questions. Just to see how long it takes for one to start howling.

although i always siam them at MRT stations or shopping malls'

entrances, i dun look down on them or condemn them

 

after all, it's a honest job

 

and while there are some insurance agents who earn 500k or more, there are many more who earn a lot lesser, still searching for their dreams

 

anyway i'm not an insurance agent :D
