The economic downturn causes a number of issues for PR. Obviously the large reduction in magazines and staff is one result but so is the explosion in telesales advertising/conferences/supplements calls – particularly for the in-house PR people.

Now don’t get me wrong it’s a very hard job and I wouldn’t fancy it, but after your fifth pushy telesales call of the day your sympathy levels fall below zero.

Recently we’ve started having some fun wth the pushy reps using the telesales ‘counterscript’. It’s a bit of fun, though your ‘assailant’ may not enjoy it.

The Counterscript is here.
