This- is the most remarkable.incideiit of its kind that we have heard of in the course of a demonstration of selling by telephone sales totalling $250,000 at an expenditure of $36 for telephone tolls. By permission we are enabled to say that the selling was done by MR. GEORGE KELLY of George R. Kelly & Co. of 104 Hanover St., Boston, New England selling agents of the American Window Glass Company of Pittsburg. One of our salesmen called upon Mr. Kelly to demon strate our new toll service selling plans, only to find that already he was employing advanced methods along this line. Said he : '."We anticipated a rise in the prlce of window glass around January 1, and wahted.to give our customers the benefit of current quotations. " There wasn't time to make personal visits to the trade, .letters wouldn't be satisfactory, so we made our calls by telephone. "During the first ten days in -December we made toll calls to widely separated points in New England, at a cost of about $36, and booked orders aggregating $250,000. Jf any New England house can show great results from .selling by telephone, we would be glad to learaof them. Business men interested in progressive ideas for the- ex tension of trade are invited to send for our booklet erititled , " Modern Methods of Money-Making,' and for samples of our " Telephone Passes." In Greater Boston, call Fort Hill 7600 and ask the Con tract Department for details. Outside. of Greater Boston, call the Local Manager. THE T WOODSTOCK VERMONT Clubbing List 7. ! '0- ( - ?
