I really love it when I do follow up calls and they dont answer! And it's so abvious, as in the pricing stages - they answer their phones by the 3rd ring.
When I start to detect that they're screening follow up calls - I call from either another landline number or one of the employee's cell phones
One of my best investments is the 'back up' cell phone with a totally different number. I always magically get someone that somehow is never available when I call with my regular phone.
