I decided to write this so you have a heads up of what to expect when dealing with these pushy sales people!
First thing I noticed when I found my desired course was the lack or shall I say zero information regarding price, though they were more than happy to add the ‘you could earn £30,000 after you have completed this course. I thought to myself there are a couple of reasons for this, the course is expensive for what it is and so that the sales team can try and work their magic.
I’m sure most will agree that the price is a key factor when deciding to enrol on a course and sites that have a price you can decide within seconds if you would like more info or continue searching for other sites.
I reluctantly left my number and email as I knew I would receive spam emails and txt messages which I have; I received the same email four times so far and the same txt 2-3 times. I also knew that I would more than likely have to talk to a pushy sales person and you guessed it I did. All I really left my details for was to find out the price, they sent me an email back though were vague on the prices and gave me a number to ring, so I did and asked for the prices which I eventually got not before they gave me answers to multiple questions I did not ask. The sales person expected me to make my decision within two minutes of telling me that the price was £1600 for a home study course. He was also crafty in the way he was asking the questions which I call the YES questions, which are a number of questions designed to make you say yes to, and these people are what sales people prey upon as they are more than likely to sign up there and then. If you are one of those YES people I do not recommend you leaving your details as you will need to say no and but in when they start talking rubbish which I had to.
When I said I will have to think about the price and the info he told me, he seemed surprised that I was not signing up there and then and said how long will it take you, one month two months ‘ I said I don’t know’ he then said, I don’t want to build up a back log of applications. I though you cheeky …….. then I said it will take as long as it takes and my application process will have to start again if I decide to do the course and I only left my details and rang to find out the price not to sign up.
I wrote this in a hurry and may have left bits out though you get the gist and I hope it helps.
