Now I have people coming door to door with this statement. Used to be on the streets.

They are all leading questionnaires that lead to a product eventually. Why they don't call it sales pitch? Friendly chit chat?

it's called warming up and breaking the ice :D

so you won't be apprehensive and chase them away. or run away from them

"Oh you're not a salesman? How disappointing, I was rather hoping to see one"

Say that to them next time and see what they say :bsmilie:

I always tell them why bother to talk to me if they are not trying to sell me/con me. You should see their blank look.

i usually just walk pass them, say NO.

and if they follow i shoot them a very, very angry killer stare/glare and they'll just suddenly stop and i can sense the fear...

ooooh...

I think a number of insurance companies also do that. They come up to you in some shopping complex holding a small piece of "survey" form with no company logo on it so that you don't know they're selling insurance. But if you look over to their booth, the name of the company is there.

How about those you encounter at shopping malls? Hello, I'm not selling anything, I just want to know if you have an credit cards?" Followed by the next question, would you like to apply for one?

Once I really have a person that's not selling anything knocking on my door. She's from the NLB and was surveying about our library using habits, got a free bookmark after the survey:)

when people ask me for survey, I will quote them $50 for one short survey session. As time is money, since they stop me for survey, they have to compensate me some $$$ :bsmilie:
