Look, especially here, on WF, we ALL sell something. I'd like a show of hands to those that happily, readily, are searching for, want to find, and will work their A$& off for someone that off the bat, doesn't to pay for services or a product. No one?
For us, we simply don't work without payment. Why? Because I too have a family, and bills. If you can't commit to paying me, giving me what I need to make YOU money (list, script, information about your company), do you really expect me to work my butt off to "prove to you" anything? I'll just bid you a good day, and head on to the next call coming in, because THEY want appointments tomorrow...you'll be stuck looking for someone that can't give you what I can.
Yes, you don't know me, and I don't know you. I don't know that you're going to pay me. However, I do know my abilities, and I do know that I'm not working for free.
Scenario if you want me to work first, then get paid:
I'll agree to work first, make you appointments, then get paid, if you agree that I can tell those appointments that you will give them your product or service to them to try for a week, and if they like it, they can pay you. I would make TONS of those appointments! No go, huh?
Simply put, no, we don't know each other. In my case, I don't know that whatever you go to sell is going to sell at that appointment I make you. I don't know what kind of a salesman you are. If you suck, and you say "that appointment was not good, I'm not paying you" then I'm screwed because you can't sell. You also don't know if I'll set the appointments I claim to, or what quality they'll be, until you see them...but if you don't want to find out what I can do, then don't. Someone else will though
I do my job, and you do yours. If you won't do yours for free, or give your product away up front, don't expect me to.
Keep this in mind when you're working with others here. You get what you pay for, you also should pay, for what you get.
