Is it a cold calling company?
Four years ago I worked for a Manchester company selling Scottish Power home energy to customers. Mine were telephone leads, which made life a lot easier, but you're at least onto a winner with it being Scottish Power - they are (or were, at least) one of the cheapest on the market.
The trouble is, selling utilities these days is far harder, in that most people have been pitched a few dozen times already. What have you to say to them that's so different? There's still a large group of ostriches who fail to recognise A Good Thing when it lands in their lap -
OSTRICH: No, I'm perfectly happy where I am, thankyou.
SALESMAN: You're happy being fleeced by British Gas and Yorkshire Electricity?
OSTRICH: Yes, thankyou.
SALESMAN: The government has introduced this for your benefit, Mr Ostrich. You were being unacceptably over-charged by both suppliers. They've opened up the market to allow you to have the benefit of cheaper bills.
OSTRICH: No, thankyou. It'll even itself out in the end.
SALESMAN: Have you actually compared the rates you are being charged against any other supplier, either ours or any other company?
OSTRICH: No, thankyou. I'm perfectly happy as I am with my head in the sand and a cork up my over-tight ass.
It's soooooooo hard being an energy salesman. I bet they made it sound sooooooo easy, didn't they? You will certainly be able to save the vast majority of customers a decent wad of money. But try telling them
