Help I’ve Been Pitch-Slapped… What Can I Do?

Yes, it’s a thing, and if you’ve never experienced it, consider yourself lucky. For the rest of us mortals, it’s that awkward, painful moment when someone thrusts a sales pitch into your inbox. There’s nothing more frustrating (or embarrassing) than being accosted by a pushy salesperson. But what can you do about it? How do you recover from a pitch-slap and move on?

Here are five tips to help you dodge (or deal with) those pesky sales pitches:


1. Be prepared

The best way to deal with a sales pitch is to be prepared for it. Know what the person is selling and what they want from you. This will help you stay calm and focused and show the salesperson that you’re not an easy target.


2. Stay polite

3. Simply ignore them

If you’re not interested, there’s no need to engage. So, don’t waste your time.


4. Say no
