More and more of the experienced salespeople who have been the force for its good efforts under horrific conditions for selling print for the past decade are being forced out or running to get away. Nick Hadley and Larry Barnhardt to name just a couple. Recently like in the last week or ten days.
Having the salespeople practice and fine tune their telephone pitch is pathetic. The rumor is that sales management people got a raise while the salespeople got their base salary and commission percentages whacked.
Sad to see a great paper kind of wither and die right before your eyes.
