The NLNA sales pitch is a joke

I was cold-called by an NLNA sales person late yesterday, Sam.

Sam had the pitch down claiming that NLNA helps its customers, yes, that is the term he used, to make more money in their businesses and cut their costs.

I questioned him about the details and he mentioned other business names, partners apparently, but no details as to the how.

He was on a mission for me to sign up. That appeared to be his only goal.

I am guessing that Sam is one of the NLNA sales people they hired a few weeks ago, pitching $2,000 a week income commission only.

While Sam has a job to do, a quota to make, if he wants to achieve any income, association representation comes from the hard slog of representation. There is only one national association representing newsagents and that is ALNA, as recognised already by suppliers and myriad government bodies.

What a joke.

    On a list of what newsagents have to worry about, various associations should consume 0.0000001% of their time and effort. Honestly this stuff is so 1990’s

    What utter fuckwits vana nlna or whatever they call themselves are. They have nothing to sell.

    In my view the future of NLNA is certain – they don’t have one. Their attempt at fracturing the industry is a waste of somebody’s money.

    Two more spam calls asking me to sign up. Sounding desperate.
