We hope we can change the way business is done.
Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) February 15, 2012
Having being hung up on and told to “buzz off” for years, two anonymous salespeople have created a website to hold businesses accountable to the Golden Rule. The site is called The Water Coolr and its purpose is simple — provide a place for salespeople to rate businesses based on how they treat them, and then only patron the businesses that treat salespeople with respect. Think Yelp for Linkedin.
“This isn’t a site just to air your dirty laundry. We want the sales community to come together in an effort to expose the best businesses to do business with. ” says one of the creators of the site (who keep their identities secret to not infringe on their ability to work in sales). “We want business owners and decision makers to take a step back and evaluate how their business is perceived from all angles, and hopefully encourage them to change their practices for the better.”
The Water Coolr has only recently launched, but the creators have received tremendous feedback from salespeople that see how a site like this can help make it easier to do a very difficult job. What is their ultimate hope for the site? “A sales community where professionals are sharing their collective knowledge.” says the other creator of the site. “We hope we can change the way business is done.”
In addition to the website launch, The Water Coolr has launched a blog focusing on articles meant to foster thought leadership in the sales arena. The Water Coolr encourages any and all sales people to contribute to the blog in an effort for everyone to share real world practices, while bolstering everyone's collective knowledge.
