When talking on the phone at 0800, we do not have a visual image. It is formed by other means. It is very important not what we say, but how we speak.
Phone calls, like business, have their time. As a rule, from eight in the morning to 10 in the evening is the best time for free phonecalls. Weekends – taboo for business calls.
