About a year ago, I accepted an invitation to subscribe to Luxury Travel magazine, published by the Haymarket Media Group. I have enjoyed reading it up to now, and always passed copies on to clients and colleagues when I’d finished with it. Anyway, just now I took a telephone call. It started with the usual “Can I speak to Paul Johnson?” – something I’m always a little wary of if I don’t recognise the caller’s voice, as we get a lot of sales calls in the office. Once it was established that this person was just wanting to update my details for my subscription to the magazine, I gladly took the call. I was happy to answer the questions regarding my name and address, but not questions regarding how much my company spends on travel or other details which I considered to be personal. As a consequence of politely declining to answer these questions, I was told in no uncertain terms that my subscription will be terminated. That’s fine by me but, if that’s the case, I won’t be recommending it to my colleagues and/or suggesting they advertise in it. I trust they understand.
