Fumbling on the Two-Yard Line
Salesforce quiets the crowd, points across the line of scrimmage and yells, “Looking forward to hearing from you in the future.”
What? OH NO! It’s a fumble on the two-yard line and Salesforce has lost the ball. Time has run out and the game is over. What a disappointment. That was a poor play at the end of what was, up to that point, a fine drive.
Looking forward to hearing from you? Seriously? That’s like walking up to a beautiful woman at a bar, buying her a drink and then saying “Call me!” before walking away and leaving...alone.
Think this is an anomaly? Think again. I receive “Looking forward to hearing from you.” e-mails every month. Since when did it become my responsibility to ask for an appointment with a sales rep? Makes me wonder if I have to write up the order as well. It’s crazy, and it happens too often.
One thing is for sure: David is still at the bar and Salesforce.com has left the building. Alone.
