You asked for WAH info and no one's calling you back!
You've been researching home business opportunities. You’ve narrowed your search down to 2 or 3 companies. You have requested information from these companies, and no one is calling you back!
No, you’re not being blacklisted by the work at home community!
Chances are one of the following things have happened:
You may have misspelled your email address or phone number
If an email is spelled incorrectly, it will be returned.
If you provided a telephone number, you may have made a mistake when typing in the numbers.
You have a “no-no” email address!
Email addresses like: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org probably will be overlooked as junk. And honestly, being sexy is not a condition of being a successful business partner. No one cares what you look like.
And if you are a woman hater....well, a good majority of home business leaders are women! NEXT! Do yourself a favor- use an email address that is professional.
You provided all the correct information and still no information…
If you haven't received an email and you know you provided a correct email address, check your spam or bulk folder. If you know the recruiters email, be sure to add them to your address book so that you can receive emails from them.
The call back
When you state on your request for information to call you at 1 p.m. central, BE THERE at 1 p.m. central. There is usually an area on contact forms to write additional comments. If so, specify if you will be unavailable on certain days.
Call or email if you are unable to keep that appointment. Recruiters get many, many requests for work at home. If you are unavailable when they call, they may or may not have a chance to get back with you.
Make sure you can accept calls if you are using a cell phone number and be sure to have a voicemail or answering machine with a NICE message in case you are not there. Let’s not get into some of the messages I’ve heard. And these people want to work with me?
While we are on the subject of cell phones- check your ring tone! Take off that music that plays for 10 minutes before you answer or the voicemail comes on. People in business don’t have time to sit through a bunch of these ring tones everyday- NEXT!
These are a few reasons why you may not be getting calls back. So remember to double-check your spellings and telephone numbers when asking for information. Have a “normal” ring tone on cell phones, and leave a nice voicemail. You may even get a nice message back. The call that can change your future!
