“When I experience cold call frustration I now know it’s time to re-invent myself and how I do business.” ~unknown
Cold Calling Is Not DEAD!
Anybody who has been in Network Marketing, Sales, or really business in general has had to deal with picking up the phone to call a prospect. Cold calling is one of the most disliked techniques, yet when done correctly it can completely explode your bank account.
Yet let’s just be honest.. who really wants to sit around calling random people?
I never did. I couldn’t stand cold calling. Which is one of the main reason I came to the internet.
I simply knew there had to be a better way.
There was one moment in my sales career that I literally converted about 85% of all my calls into sales.
The product… they were Sesame Street Books. I worked at an outbound call center. I would sit on the phones for hours.. taking call after call after call.
Yes.. I was that person calling during dinner to offer you something you needed in your house.
How did I convert 85% of my calls into sales, you ask.. Oh.. I knew that every single person I spoke with had kids. During those days Sesame Street Books were a hot commodity.
Funny, I know.. yet the numbers didn’t lie. I treated each call like their lives depended on their kids reading Sesame Street Books.. and 85% bought into my story. See most of the adults that answered the phone also grew up reading Sesame Street Books just like myself… and we all want our kids to have the best of what we experienced.
Cold Calling Techniques Can Cause You To Quit.. or Press You To Move Forward!!
Right now in 2014 cold calling is harder then ever.. WHY?
Well everyone has caller ID. So basically they have made an assumption before they even answer the phone with “Hello!”
Where as pre-caller id, the person didn’t have any idea who was calling until they said Hello! Then you could lead with the, “Hello, First name.. ”
Now when a person sees a number they do not know on caller id and then you are on the other end calling them by their first name.. the response is usually…
Let me just be honest.. I would hate to sale Sesame Street books today.. with caller id around.
Now let’s get into what to do with your list of leads.
Many still believe strongly in cold calling Biz Opp leads. You may have a list in front of you. HOT off the presses.
