    Product and manufacturer’s reps who cold call are usually not welcome. The best ones, the “Trusted Advisors”, know that, and make appointments. They are the ones we go to when we have questions. They are the knowledgeable ones without whom we couldn’t do our best work.

    not really my favorites when they cold call like that. Feels a bit unprofessional that they expect to be able to sit and talk. I like it when they show up to leave literature and have samples ready, but i can’t be expected to drop what i’m doing and listen to them.

    If they bring bagels . . . we’re good.

    Ha, on a day I am dropping into offices making cold calls between scheduled appointments.

    If they come bearing gifts, i’ll give em 5 minutes. Any longer requires lunch.
