Dynamike -

I get the same email barrage and considering I provide SEO and website marketing solutions, I find these calls helpful to understand WHAT they offer and the overall costs. Many of these calls are simply a numbers game and once they get your business, they wrap it into a high priced MONTHLY package that only required one time effort for the on-page work.

P.S? When are you going to the magic meeting next? We can meet up and chat.

Next time when you receive a sales call;
Tell them you want to listen to there pitch under one condition. They must first listen to yours. Now you can sell them your show (or ask who is in charge of booking and so on...)!

success ;-)

What makes you think all that junk mail phone calls are a direct result of your SEO? Everybody I know gets those annoying phone calls weather they have a web site or not. The no call list just doesn't work.

Everyone wants to sell their stuff but not buy others.

Magicians make me laugh. They complain about price shoppers but have killed the brick and mortar magic shops because it is cheaper online. They leave balloon animals as tips and constantly force magic on an unsuspecting public and complain about a person doing their job.

Yep way to make the world love magic.

It's very easy to deal with spam, just hit "mark as spam", and from then on, every email from that address will go directly into your spam folder. But it's the phone calls that get me.

I must get about 20 a day. Luckily, most come from 0800 numbers (here in the UK), so I know not to answer the phone. But still, the calls block my phone for many minutes every day. Over the course of a month, there are almost certainly a number of clients who attempt to call while one of these unsolicited sales calls is coming in. I'm sure I've lost some business because of it.


Thankfully, nearly all my clients now contact me via email these days, so it's less of a problem.

Not sure yet. I just bought a house. I hate spending my money on gasoline because of the high pricing.

If you have call display, you can simply not answer the calls from area codes outside your normal working area. Let it go to your voicemail.

A good portion of incoming sales calls seem to be from outside my normal working area.

That's how I handle it. Even then, they have only a few seconds to get my interest. If they fail in that, I hang up.

I did purchase the app "Call Control": https://play.google.com/store/apps/detai......ol&hl=en It is very helpful. It blocks the repeat calls, private calls, unusual calls, text messages and more.
