Time Is (Not) On My Side
I've been writing for a living for six years. I've been working for Promo Marketing for four years. I was supposed to start my blog two years ago. I actually started writing my blog two weeks ago. I walked into the office six hours ago. I've been staring at this blank document for three hours. This post needs to appear online in two hours. And all I'm thinking about is happy hour.
Lately, I've found myself often thinking about time. I could say it's because I'm getting older and watching my friends marry and mature as adults. I could say it's because I'm debating the value of Kantian a priori concepts of experience versus absolute time. I could say it's because I'm building a time machine per Stephen Hawkings' instructions so I can fleece Einstein and Newton in poker. I could say a lot of things, but truth be told I'm thinking about time for a far more mundane reason: I'm writing our September feature on clocks and watches, and frankly, I'm running out of time before my deadline. (Although the poker thing definitely crossed my mind.)
We're looking for the top tips and sales tactics for selling timepieces. The problem, as is often the case, is that no one has time to talk. And that's where you come in. Do you have a client that regularly purchases watches? Have you sold imprinted clocks to a large chain establishment? What are your time-tested techniques for selling time? How many more clock-based clichés can I include in a single paragraph?
We want to hear from you. Leave your stories, case studies and tricks in the comment section, or e-mail them to me. We'll read all of your advice and suggestions, and if your stories fit the article, we'll include them along with your name and company. So what are you waiting for? Clock's ticking.
