World's Funniest "How to Cold Call" Videos

I have a treat for you. Today's "Friday Funnies" post features ten videos with "how to" pointers for Inside Sales Reps. Some of the advice is the stuff that drives customers crazy, but the writer/filmmaker/actor, a guy named John D. Mongillo, is so off-the-wall funny that it's all somehow palatable. And there are some real truths here about selling and sales culture... as long as you don't take the advice too seriously.

As usual, I've included polls so you can easily express your opinion.

Here's the first, one that deals with one of the most common problems in sales:
