Usually i tell them that i`m not interested, and if they really go on , i`m telling them that they can talk as much as they want, because i will not buy , but if i don`t wanna hurt them , i just tell them that they are in a bad moment, when i`m not having money to buy that thing. And after a wile, they really understand . But sometimes, there are some of them that are really bad, i mean they are rude , so i`m just telling them that i don`t what that, and i`m going ( closing the door ) .

That depends on how much you want to NEVER get a call from those marketers anymore. I was working some time a go for a company which was using several techniques phone-marketers are using. Among them, how I get phone numbers: exchange lists with marketers who are selling/promoting a total different product. I was in life insurance niche and I had few friends from avon and similars (don't remember names) and also from some "never-hear-about" companies who are promoting on tv stations. Whenever would happen one (prospect) moved or changed phone number, we al would cut from lists .. Soon after his name and phone was gone from all of us lists (they also exchange my ex-list to others ..). So, how to delete yourself from them lists ? here you have the top best solution .. but of course you can come up with something similar but personalized http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=un_PjRXV5l8

I say "no not interested thanks, but good luck on your next call." I do say that to people that come to the door. It's like you say, it is their job and they're used to it. I was a telemarketer and believe me, we would rather you cut us off and say not interested or even hang up rather let us go through the whole speech then say not interested.

Usually, I just tell them no thank you and then hang up. that way I'm being polite about my answer and then hanging up so I don't have to listen to them go on and on and on... I know it is their job but they still get paid when I hang up on them! Now they have more time to bother someone else!! he, he, he.
