Making Cold Calls Count

Aug 18, 2007
Cold callers are quite a bothersome feature of modern life. I do not know how they manage it, but cold callers manage to make our phone lines busy just when that very important call is going to come. And most cold callers refuse to let go of the phone lines unless you tire of being polite and bang the phone down on his ear. The business of cold calling requires a cold caller to get accustomed to phones getting banged on his ear. This is the modern-day equivalent to doors being banged on the faces of sales persons.

However, there are quite a few positives related with the sales calls that we keep on getting on our phones. For instance, let us take the case of cold callers that sell credit cards. Now, most of us lack the time and the inclination to be attentive to the many developments in the world of personal finance. Moreover, it is tough to be able to keep a track of the various new deals that keep emerging. Every day on TV, we watch ads that promote great new credit card deals. Finance companies today, are constantly sparring against rival companies. One wrong move could mean a great loss in business.

Have you noticed the way in which a large number of UK credit cards come with various incentives in order to gain more customers? 0% credit card deals have become permanent fixtures now, as are deals which offer cash back and other similar rewards. Compare the various credit cards in the markets to see how each credit card company keeps trying to gain one-upmanship over the others. Try checking out the various kinds of deals available in the markets. Then, compare them with the one offered by your friendly cold caller. Quite often, the cold caller is armed with an even better offer.

Ask a lot of questions over that telephonic conversation so that you learn a little more about the deal that is being offered. Then, do a little snooping around of your own. Look on the Internet for similar deals and watch out for possible problems. It is quite possible that you are one of the lucky few to get such a great deal on a credit card. If that happens, maybe you could take yourself out for a party for not having hung up the phone the other day. In fact, the next time that you are not all that busy, hear out your cold caller. Who knows, there might be a great deal waiting for you.
