Well, yes, but it was not put like that initially. In fact the 1st call was more personal and ended with her saying I probably didn't need their service, which I agreed. The 2nd call from her a few days later was a surprise and was again more personal, but with a hard sell toward the end. It was not until about 2 weeks in (with a few left message on my VM and a friend request on Linkedin in the interim) that she even told me how much the services were and even when I balked, she accepted --but called me again a few days later. Like I said, her entire approach was personal and not at all sales-ish, so very odd.
