I only WISH I got more calls, these telemarketers are prime referral prospects. They all have dead end jobs working for minimum wage and live in the USA, what more could you ask for? If getting called bugs you, get a Magic Jack just for Internet use and turn the ringer off so everything goes to voice mail.

Leave it to you my friend to come up with this!  You are 100% pure genius!!  I sure am glad to be working with you!!!
Lots of love for ya Warren :)  Hee hee  ;D
If you guys all had even a clue how easy the conversion is, you would ALL be begging for more calls. All I do is wait for a break in the conversation and ask them point blank, "Are they really paying you enough to say all that?". If you want a raise without even having to ask your boss, go look at @@@@@.com (can't give out links here). If you need help setting up a website, contact me somehow. I am not hard to find and it can be done first class for $1 a month with no ads or free hosting to deal with. Or you can just sit there and watch the numbers on my banner keep spinning.


That made me smile. Thinking positive thoughts and business like thoughts sure can get you a long way!

I'm fairly new here, and I would like to know if any of you get phone calls from any of the sponsors???? I can deal with the e-mails and even if they send me mail as I can do with that as I please, but I really, really hate the phone calls!!!! I don't think I want to do this if I'm going to get called all the time now... Is this what's going to happen? Any way I can reverse it? HEEEELP!  :BangHead:
I dont get as many as i thought i would

I have not been called by anyone.  I do not think this information is shared unless you chose to share it.
On the "Account Page" - underneath who you were referred by it should say something like this :
Click here if you want to give this person your email address, so they can contact you.    :thumbsup:

As for the offers, I am not too sure.  I know that some may call, and that is a concern for me also.  My husband and I own a Landscaping
business that I need to answer all the time.  I do not want to be bothered with nonsense calls all the time.  So I am curious to see the
answers from the rest of the group!!
I got quite a few in 3 days by the same company, till I asked them to stop calling

I had to do this job when I was younger, and they are people that are paying bills, making a living, they do not make a lot of money, and their are generally children, so the next time one calls you pray for the caller, that they find a better way to make ends meet. The only thing that riles me up is a bill collector, I am not talking abut the ones that are nice over the phone, I get frustrated at the mean ones, like the other day, I explained to many differet
I had just gotten out of hospital had surgery on shoulder and leg and other foot ribs were still broken, etc. I explained to this woman that I am on leave from work, med. but do you think she understood?"
Nope she said she would keep on calling, even though I explained how hard it was to get to the phone. these people should not be able to talk like this.


The simplest way to STOP  the irritation of these calls is JUST GET AN OLD FASHIONED ANSWERING MACHINE.

OR you could start quoting the Bible to them, and most likely they will hang up quickly and NOT CALL BACK.

I concur. The answering machine is the best way to handle that situation. Let an automated voice do the talking for you.

I get enough calls to last me a month...in a couple of days haha.  But alot of time if i end up unsubscribing via e-mail they stop calling.  I wish I had enough courage to ask the telelmarkers that haha.

I got millions of phone calls after I verified my number, and I'd never gotten any telemarketing calls before. I was even getting them at 4 in the morning sometimes. I just put my phone on silent when I was asleep, when they called, I asked them not to call me again, and when they kept calling, I prank called them about five million times. Most importantly, I put my number on the DO NOT CALL list. It makes it illegal for these telemarketers to call you. After about a month of being on the list, you won't be getting calls anymore.

There are also web sites you can submit your number to and it really does help to reduce the calls.

Don't use your number in offers either, unless you want the calls. There are online services that you may use for offers to receive calls.

You can always sign up for Google Voice and get rid of the telemarketers that way.

BTW - Old Buddy, very effective form of marketing that you use. Due to TOS infringement I can not disclose where I saw your picture and postings, but you sure did crate some waves on the net about another GPT site. (I am sure that you know what I am talking about.)

I find it funny that you discuss that you do not approve of GPT website users due to the fact that they are scamming the companies... This is a directly copied from your posting.
From the post: XXXXXXXXX and XXXXXXXX XXXXXXX are SCAMS!

"I'm sure they're not the only ones either, just the most popular. If you think about what they do it should be obvious to anyone who takes part in the rip off.

Oh I'm not saying they cheat the people who join, of course they wouldn't do that! The scam is perpetrated against the poor advertiser that is offering a nice bonus for people to try their product or service. These are honest businessmen and women who are just trying to make an honest buck and are willing to give in order to receive."

I just thought I would mention it since you were saying how horrible people like us are and then I find you here posting away with over $1,200 made on the exact same type of site that you "despise".
I read through this thread again today and it amazes me how you can wave an answer right in front of some people and they ignore it. I have stated many times that I do NOT do offers that rip off advertisers here, I make my money mostly from getting referrals and the offers I do complete are ones I actually want to try. The websites mentioned in that OLD post you referred to are still ripping off advertisers and still on my avoid list. Fusioncash TEACHES us NOT to do offers we are not interested in and that's why I am here. After 10 years online, I'm sure you can dig up something I posted that was a lot worse that this. You also might notice that $1,200 has gone up a little more.

Never heard of this tip, but it's extremely funny! ;D I'll give it a try...I hate phone calls all day too...who knew quoting the Bible would work. Comes to show you how much people really believe in it! :o :wave: :peace:

OR you could start quoting the Bible to them, and most likely they will hang up quickly and NOT CALL BACK.
