SAN MATEO, Calif. - July 5, 2016 - PRLog -- "SALES CALLS" the poem…the possible song... and "SALES CALLS" - THE ADVENTURE...

Enclosed is a poem called "Sales Calls."

It's a poem about making sales calls and trying to contact the right person to make a sale.

Every business and every salesperson in the world will be able identify with it.

Here are some things that a media company can do with it…

A) In addition to using the poem in a story about making sales calls, media companies could also set the poem up to be an interactive item with your audience.

You could set it up on a separate internet page and people could add in a few lines or verses of their own and it could become the longest running poem in the universe.

And… it could be done in many different languages, too.


B) Then… you can have even more fun with it if someone wants to turn it into a hip-hop song. (Just send me a portion of the royalties.)

C) You could also publish the final poem as a book along with some other stories relating to sales and selling.

D) And then…you could start "Sales Calls - Part 2"

The poem was begun in 2013. Here is a recent update on the poem:

He's not in

He's not available

He's in a Meeting

He's out of town

He's busy right now

He's on the phone

May I take a Message?

Would you like his voice mail?

Is he expecting your call?

Sorry, I don't recall seeing that information.

Could you send it again?

If he's interested, he'll contact you.

Have a nice day.

So, I called again and

No one answered

No one home

No one read it

No one cares

Who'd you say you were again?

Who are you with?

Sorry, he's not available.

Have a nice day.

He's out to lunch.

It's a late lunch.

He's on vacation

He's indisposed.

He's being deposed?

He doesn't work here anymore.

He's in our London office.

Sorry, we're not interested.

We don't take any unsolicited proposals

Thank you for calling

All operators are currently busy

please stay on the line and we will be with you shortly.

He's in conference now.

He's traveling.

I'll let him know.


Try again later.

He's on a call.

He comes in at Two.

Call back Thursday

I think he's on vacation.

I don't know how to reach him.

He's in back to back meetings all day

He's in a (bored) meeting

He went abroad

(He's with a broad)

She's not here

(No longer with the company, or just out of the office?)

She's still with the company, she's just not here.

"He hasn't been in all day."

Can I leave him a message?

"Yes, please send him an email."

I'd rather call him. Does he have a voice mail?

"Please send him an email...

...that's how we conversate at this company."

Sorry, we're not interested in making hundreds  of million dollars...

That's not my department

He's not at his desk

He may not be in until Monday

Does he know you?

Is he expecting your call?

Where are you from?

Sorry, he's in a meeting.

I'm sorry, he's on another line.

Could you send me an email?

Give him a call at about 3:30

Try him in half an hour

Give him a call after 5

Try him next week

Can I leave a message?

They hung up.

Please enter the first three numbers of the first or last name and press pound

Sorry that name is not in our directory

(He's only the CEO)

To start your search over, press 3.

Oh, he got your package.

If he's interested, he'll call you.

"Thanks. I'll take a look at it" said the email...

So two days later I followed up with some

more information...

"Thanks, I'll take a look at it" said the reply.

My boss said "Please take his name off your list."

I said who's your boss?

You know if he reads the proposal it could

help make your company a lot of money...

Tell him Thanks a lot and

Have a nice day.

May I ask who's calling?

I'm sorry he's busy at the moment

Please hold while I transfer your call to...


This system is temporarily unable to complete your call...

please call again later

I'm sure that your proposal

would be interesting to us.

Regrettably, we just don't have the

time or the staff available to check it out.

I would like to speak to

Mr. John Jones please...

I will refer you to his assistant.

Sorry...we don't have him here.

You don't have him there?

No, we don't have him here.

You mean he's not in?

Yes, he's not in.

OK, can I leave a message?

Would you like his voice mail?

Sorry there are no entries by that name
no one is available to help you right now.

(add your verses here…)
