I'm writing an article on how to buy digital cameras and I'm trying to find a camera salesperson (current or former) to interview. I would like to find out some of the behind-the-scenes tactics used by retail stores (like spiffs, promotional practices, etc.) The interview would be anonymous and I wouldn't mention the name of the store. (Don't want to get anyone in trouble.)
If you are interested, my email address is rik at rikfairlie dot com.
Not so strange a question because that's how good interviews start. But just throwing out some bait and hope that you get a few bites doesn't cut it. You need to seek out the people you want to interview and call them up. You can start by e-mailing them to set up a preliminary talk and have a recorder connected to your phone for any conversation you have with them. I have a good article on my web site about how I record my interviews.
Meanwhile, it was suggested to you on DPReview to contact MusicDoctor as he works in a camera store. Have you ever e-mailed him?
