It’s summer time, and it’s time to refresh our client lists. This is the most hectic time of the year when most of our business grows and it’s up to us to discard what is no longer needed. Discard all the bad customers and make room for the new to enter our life.
The benefits of shedding bad customers is of many. It will shed you of the stress and the extra burden. You won’t have to put up with the customers that have given you headaches. The types of customers to get rid of are those who steal, the ones who are always short, the ones who are sketchy, and those who have fallen off.
Once you get rid of these people, your life will become that much easier. It will clear up room for the newer and better customers to enter your life. Simply put, close a door and another one will open.
The customers who steal for a living are the ones who the police are looking for. We must discard these people so that we don’t get involved with their mess. For the young dealers, it might be fun and tempting to get free jewelry, electronics, and other goods, but it’s time to realize that it’s not worth it. Getting yourselves involved in more trouble is no good for any of us. We have to learn to be not cheap because we can afford that stuff already.
The customers who are always short are the ones who waste our time. They take advantage of our niceness and prey on dealers who show them sympathy. Never accept anything less of full change. Your customers should always have 100% of the money when they call you, and if they don’t, they don’t deserve to be your customers. We want customers who respect us and follow the rules.
The sketchy customers are the ones who go around from dealer to dealer, using each dealer to their advantage. These junkies are scandalous and are not to be trusted. If they are already going to another dealer, fuck them. They probably just call you when they max out their fronts from other dealers anyways. Watch out for these junkies as when they hit their lows, they may try to set you up with one of their dealers for a 40 rock.
The junkies who have fallen off are already a lost cause. It’s like an oil-well that is dry, their is no more oil that they can produce. When it comes to this stage, we must cut them. These people may have had high paying jobs and may have bought a lot from you, but once they hit rock bottom, they are useless. It’s time to let them go.
As you can see, there are a variety of people who we must cut off. These people do us no good so we must protect ourselves by disassociating with them. Create another phone number and move all the contacts you want to keep into that phone. Give it about 2 weeks for you to hand out the new number to all of your good customers.
Then you will be left with a phone that the old customers phone. Sell that phone along with the contacts for all the junkies that you don’t want. That way, you can make some extra money. Anyways, have a good summer folks.
