People out there need what your business has to offer, they just don’t know it yet. You’re helping them by calling and informing them about what you do, and how you can help save them time and money. You believe in your brand, and your offerings or you wouldn’t be in business. Customers are loyal and have referred new business to you, but you still need more growth. If you have a small business, it may be especially hard to carve out time in your day to work on business development, but it’s a must for any business. If you’re struggling at all with this task, the following simple tips will help you get started to more successful cold calling.
- Attitude Check.
Cold calling really works. Start with a confident attitude based on the reality that the people you are calling really do need to speak with you, and you can provide solutions to their problems.
Create a prospecting plan that clearly spells out what prospecting activities you will engage in, how often, and the results you expect to see from these activities. Track your progress and enjoy the results.
Create a well-thought out prospecting approach and use it consistently, especially if it produces predictable results for you. Stay in command of your calls. You will soon overcome call reluctance and start setting up highly-qualified meetings.
