Successful cold calling liberates employees and enriches business owners because new business opportunities offer freedom, flexibility, self-sufficiency and revenue. Furthermore, prospects like to see the entrepreneurial spirit in others and like to buy from people they can relate to.
Therefore, employees who cold call effectively often retain their jobs, achieve higher levels of compensation and advance in their careers. Tougher mindsets result, creating a company culture of overcoming resistance, rejection, obstacles and discomfort.
Are your people taking risks and seizing opportunity?
Cold calling is a critical stage in the sales process. When employees cold call effectively, companies make money and break into new accounts without referrals or introductions.
The companies also save money because cold calling efforts are among the least expensive methods for qualifying leads. Qualifying leads protects the salesperson and their company from chasing after people who are incompatible with the products and services offered.
Cold calling is not a pointless numbers game. It’s a long term approach that saves time and money. Every name employees scratch off a list and every piece of information gathered provides further justification for cold calling.
Are you afraid that all your prospects will be annoyed by unscheduled interruptions? Do your employees have the preparation and education they need? Help your employees develop self-confidence through education. Teach them how to cold call.
