Dear Digital Media Sales People,

I am writing this open letter to each and every one of you out of sheer frustration. This has been boiling over for some time, and I am sure that I am not the only one to feel this way. But within the last week, I have contacted numerous Web sites in order to get simple pricing information. Believe it or not, I actually need this information before I decide if I am going to place any media with you. Not only does your Web site generally not have this information readily available, but when I contact you to ask for it, I don’t seem to get a response.

Believe it or not, there has been one particular Web site that my colleagues and I have been trying to contact for several months, we have tried emailing, calling, faxing, all to no avail. I eventually received an email from their Business Development Manager stating that they are sorry for the problems I have been having and should I have any questions, then I can email them. First of all, I have questions, they are the things I emailed, called you about and faxed to you, and secondly, when I responded to your email, it didn’t work.

So, I am going to give all of the Digital Media Sales personnel free training lessons, I will teach you how to increase your sales exponentially. It will take time, practice and unfortunately, it will take effort. Are you ready for this?

Here are my top 5 tips to make sure you increase sales this year:

  1. Respond
  2. Respond in a timely manner
  3. Respond with good information
  4. Respond with politeness
  5. Make sure your inbound marketing processes work and then Respond.

Believe it or not, this is a very simple formula that should result in more sales and let’s face it, who wouldn’t want that?

Before you ask, yes I am available for consulting gigs, however, I may or may not respond and if I do, it will probably be in a few weeks, when you have already found someone else,

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at

Thanks Have a Good Day
