I’m a bit of a nerd. I love watching educational TV programming such as the popular Discovery channel show MythBusters.

If you haven’t seen this show before, the team of MythBusters scientifically tests common myths, such as “The color red makes bulls go ballistic,” to discover if the scenario is:

  • Confirmed: The MythBusters can create the correct circumstances for the myth. When they test the myth’s premise, it works just how it’s supposed to. The myth is true!
  • Plausible: For whatever reason, it’s not possible to exactly duplicate the myths circumstances and corresponding results.  The myth could be true with the modified scenario, but we can’t know for sure.
  • Busted: The myth can’t be replicated using either the correct circumstances or modified parameters. The myth is definitely not true.

If you took the time to click on the highlighted myth above (or if you’re just super smart) you will already know that the myth about red making bulls angry is not true. Motionless red, blue and white flags all received the same “half-hearted attack” from the MythBusters’ test bull. Waving the flag (whatever color) was the key to an aggressive charge from the bull.

Now if you ever find yourself in Spain during July’s “Running of the Bulls” festival, you will know it is safe to wear red as long you are moving and jumping around LESS THAN other people in your vicinity.

Believing dialer myths could hurt your business. Unlike knowing whether it’s possible to literally knock your socks off, there’s a lot at stake with dialing technology. Incorrect information can lead to decisions resulting in fewer accounts collected and consequently less profit for your company.

Do you seek 100% answering machine detection accuracy? Have you fallen for the adage “a dialer is a dialer is a dialer?” Were you under the impression that IAT only offers site-premised dialers?

Here’s the truth behind a few common Dialer Myths you’d do well to stop believing:
