Why I Hate Jeffrey Gitomer!

I was happy, making good money but I made the mistake of seeing Jeffrey Gitomer in Cleveland, Ohio last fall. My life now sucks! Why? Because Gitomer urged us all to start our own websites and join LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. Now I have to get up early everyday and write for my blog and post to LinkedIn and Facebook. I fight to find the time to shoot videos for YouTube. I have not even started Twitter yet. My life will really suck when I start that.

What did you say? I didn’t have to follow Gitomer’s recommendations. I guess you are right, but I knew that everything else he said was the gospel, the absolute truth about sales that no one ever had the testicular fortitude to talk about. I can still hear his voice ringing in my ears “and it’s Free” when speaking about social media. I have to follow all his advice or I will hear Gitomer’s voice saying in my head, “unless you don’t want to make more money.” Do you want to know what a nudge is? Go to the dictionary and you will see a picture of Gitomer.

It gets worse. He even urged us to talk to our customers about what they like about buying our products and services. Now my life sucks worse because I can no longer claim “I don’t know what they want!” Now that I know their buying motives, I am now stuck making more sales than I ever thought possible. The worst part is now I will have to pay more taxes.

Warning! Stay away from this man. Whatever you do, do not go to http://www.gitomer.com. He is Dangerous!

    Hey I don’t blame you for hating Jeffery, I too have come up with witty content for my Twitter, Facebook, and Blog on Google. Have started You Tube nothing to post, not good at Video take a terrible picture. Time will tell!!
    I agree with whole concept of Buisness Socail Media, is 10 times better than ( cold call ). Have tried Ace of Sales for a month.

    Donald,
    Ace of Sales is Awesome! My business is over 50% up. Actually I really love Gitomer! My wife hates him! If I can ever be helpful please call me!

    Hi Pete,

    Great article. What a way to draw people in. I have a love-hate relationship with Gitomer also. I’m just sorry I didn’t get to attend his seminar in Cleveland last year.

    I’ve been using Ace Of Sales for about a year now and it really does make a difference. I’m actually in need of an assistant to help me keep up.
