Is it just me, or did Christmas just rush by? If you were brave enough to venture into the malls, you would have been able to see just how busy cell phone stores were. Those sales reps, though extremely busy, were probably pretty happy with the business they were receiving. January and February mark a quiet time in sales. Sure, you will see activity in the same stores, but nothing like it was in the previous quarter. Now is the perfect time to hone your skills and prepare for the New Year. The BlackBerry smartphone does sell itself for the most part, but there are consumers who look for the confident and knowledgeable sales rep behind them. A few months ago, Rogers Wireless came up with a way to reach out to their sales reps. Not just through training material or sales meetings, but through Twitter. Say hello to SAM and MO.
@SAMBlackBerry is “all about Social networking, Applications and Messaging.”
@MOBlackBerry is “all about Multimedia and Organization.”
Now do you see where the names SAM and MO fit in? It’s an interesting concept, as they tweet about various applications, accessories and what they have done using BlackBerrys. In my opinion, more helpful tips could be tweeted in order to offer more value to their followers (who must be approved, I may add). I guess the same could be said about my own. My feelings were hurt a little bit, as they stopped following me for some reason. I won’t be too mad at MO though, as he does follow CrackBerry! At the time that this article was written, they only had 23 followers each. Alright Rogers reps, step up and start following these two.
