Today, I’m going to talk to you about cold calling. Now. People don’t want to touch cold calling with a bargepole, this cold calling will you ring someone up that you’ve never met before? scares a lot of people, a lot of people think it, you know, sit in the call centre ring people up when they’re having their dinner, and just really pissing them off. I do call calling every single day. I’ve never had someone tell me to eff off. And I’m telling the truth I never have cold calling is just ringing someone up and having a conversation with them. Like I’m doing with you now. If you can have a conversation with your friends and your family, you can have a conversation over the phone with anyone. It’s not difficult. If you believe enough in your product and your business, you can transfer the energy over the phone to your prospect of the client. If you want to sell your product, you must be able to cold call, you will get a few rejections you will get a few nose. But take the learning experience from those noes and turn them into yeses. Don’t say no to cold calling is a very important part of business. So for example, I work in sales for the popper business school, I send out emails, I call people up. Sometimes I send tweets to get the interest. However, I found the most productive way. And the best way to engage with people is to speak with them on the phone. You can send someone an email, you can send someone a tweet, and they can ignore it. If you call them up and ask to speak to them. They can ignore you. They can put the phone down but rarely ever happens. So if you send someone an email and they don’t respond, call them it is the best way in which to speak to them. Don’t be scared of cold calling. Get out there and do it. Thanks for listening guys. Be sure to subscribe below. I think we’ve got lots of events coming up in 2018. You can check them out on our event page. Sign up.
