Cold Calling is Great!

Mar 14, 2008
You have finally made the big decision to get out of the rat race and start a small business. Congratulations! You have just entered what is known as the small office or home office type of business.

Belonging to this crowd gives you particular limitations. Most probably, the very first thing you would worry about is how to generate your list of customers or how you would market your product to potential buyers. Hence, if you still do not know your way around, you might as well submit yourself into the usual activity of every sales personócold calling.

The only drawback is that most people are not very comfortable with this type of sales-generating process. Whether it is used to chase some sales leads, follow ups, or just to give their clients a ring, cold calling can be pretty uncomfortable to deal with.

On the other hand, cold calling can be great. It can even be fun if you just know how to do it.

The problem with most sales people is that they do not know how to do cold calls properly and effectively that is why they regard it as something that is so hard to utilize. Moreover, when you are working hard, fun is never present in your midst.

Moreover, most sales people are not comfortable with cold calling that is why they cannot deliver their lines well, they tend to blabber endlessly, thus annoying their customers, and they just do not know the benefits they can derive from cold calling.

Consequently, one of the greatest problems with people who do cold calls is that they sound like a real telemarketer. Of course, you can use script as long as you avoid reading it verbatim because if you do, you will sound like the typical telemarketer, hence, people hang up on you.

Like any kind of conversation, cold calling must be as natural as if you are just talking with your friend. It does not have to sound too professional so that your customer will not suspect you of pushing him or her to buy your products no matter what.

Therefore, for people who wish to use cold calling as their marketing strategy but are afraid to do so, here are some tips that you can use and make cold calling really great way to earn more money for your business.

1. Make an enticing, friendly greetings or opening statement.

As they say, first impressions last. Therefore, it is important to put so much weight and attention to your greetings or opening statement. It is how you get your customers on the hook that will make your cold call a success.

If from the start everything is already messed up, chances are, you can never even get to the second part of your cold calling process.

2. Have a great motivation on yourself

It is simple. How will the other person on the line believe to whatever it is that you are saying if you sound like you are so distant with your words? This means that you can never entice people to believe in you if you do not believe on what you are saying in the first place.

Motivate yourself and believe that the best product in the world is yours and that people should know about it.

3. Know the importance of cold calling

If ever you get to make cold calls just for the sake of doing it because somebody told you that it is a part of the marketing strategy, stop talking and hang up the phone. This will not do you any good.

To make cold calling a great way to achieve your success in the business, it is best that you know the importance of cold calling. You should be aware and totally convinced that by cold calling you can definitely reap more positive results than what you can have with other marketing strategies.

4. Do not EVER blabber, rattle on, and talk nineteen to the dozen like what most telemarketers usually do.

If you this, then you will never see cold calling as a great way to boost productivity on your business. The problem with this type of speech delivery is that people will never understand you. They can never decipher the ideas that you are trying to tell them and you can never make them see that what you are saying can do them good.

In cold calling, the only power you have is your words. Therefore, it would be better to deliver them in the most desirable way. You can do this by employing the right tone of voice, the proper pitch, and the perfect pace.

All of these things are boiled down to the fact that cold calling is really great. The only reason why most sales people regard it negatively is the fact that they are doing it the wrong way.

Hence, discover the greatness in cold calling. Start the process the right way and earn yourself more profits.
