BOOKing APPOINTMENTS

prior to becoming a PARTNER 

 

Tailor this to your own conversational style – but do try & keep the words in bold in the conversation

 

“Hi [NAME], I wonder if you could do me a favour?”

<their reply – hopefully along the lines of “sure, what is it?”>

 

“You may or may not know, but I’ve been looking for a part-time job for some extra income for (holidays/house/whatever is relevant to you), and I think I might’ve found one that gives me some flexible hours. It’s a company based in London, that helps their customer pay less on their household bills when they do their normal shopping.

I can’t really go into any details about it yet, as I’ve yet to take up the offer, but if I do, would it be OK if I popped over and showed you how it works, so you can refer me to some other people, and you never know, it might help you too?”

 

 <their reply – hopefully along the lines of “sure, when suits you”>

“OK, great – once I’ve started, I’ll give you a call & we can sort out a time..

 

<then normal chit-chat & end call as normal>

 

 

 

If they ask for more details:

 

“Well, to be fair, NAME, as I’ve said, I haven’t started yet, but what I know so far is that the high street shops & online are helping to pay for the company’s customer bills every month, which is pretty clever don’t you think? If I start, I’ll give you another call & I’ll be able to show you the ins and outs then, OK?
