Finding New Customers Cold Calling
If your market is high-end b2b and you need to connect with high level execs to make your sale, finding new customers by cold calling can help you get in-the-door…make your sale and get more customers.
The secret is making your calls with a personal touch and engaging your prospect with routine, real-time follow-up calls.
Yes, it’s a process.
But from cold lead through satisfied customer it brings you better qualified prospects with higher conversion rates than you can get with direct mail, email marketing or traditional telemarketing.
I develop your prospect list by building solid relationships with key prospects in the markets and the companies you want to reach.
I start the process with introductory cold calls that qualify each prospect to determine if your business is a good fit for what they need.
It’s here the the better qualified prospects are engaged for careful and methodical follow-up calls. This is where the all important relationship building process begins.
With each call I capture key details…including:
- Your prospect’s interest level in your goods or services.
- Identify their needs…learn about existing suppliers… and how YOU can pre-prempt the competition.
- Ask the qualifying questions to make certain your offer matches their needs.
- Learn their “hot buttons” — what is it you can do for them that matters most.
