8 Million Australians On The Do Not Call Register

We’re noting this a little belatedly, but it’s still worth mentioning: more than 8 million Australians are now on the Do Not Call register. Memo to marketers: if the only way you think you can sell a product if by hassling people over the phone, you are wrong. Two-thirds of Australian households don’t want to hear from you.

At the beginning of June, that number stood at 7.5 million. As well as signing up for the register, consider getting a Do Not Knock sign to keep door-to-door salespeople (almost inevitably shilling dubious power company deals) from hassling you.
