- Call To Action: None. There is nothing you need do. I will telephone you in a few days to learn of your reaction to this letter.
I called the 19th at 10:25 and got voice-mail. I don’t like leaving voice-mails when we’ve not previously spoken.
- I left my letter clipped to the paper near my phone.
- I called the 21st at 9:15 and got voice-mail.
- I called the 23rd at 11:55 and got through!
I asked first off “Do you have two minutes?”. Yes he did, just two. It is, after all, just before lunchtime on a Friday.
I reminded him of my letter. He told me the focus of the paper was on “events and happenings”; I think that is an objection.
I acknowledged that my offering was not about events, nor about happenings, and maybe there was not a good fit.
He came back then and asked for specifics. I gave him a 20-second overview, reminded him that my 2 minutes was up, and asked if I could send him an email with 6 short samples.
