My outreach prospecting builds a rapport to establish a credible business relationship over time and not with a single phone call.
Developed specifically for this "hands-on", one-to-one real-time interaction my direct new client outreach is well suited for engaging high-level executives including CEOs..CFOs...CIOs...business owners and high net worth individuals.
Question: Does effective business outreach cold calling require a background in the industry or markets you are calling?
Answer: Surprisingly, industry specific knowledge about the business segments you are calling is NOT essential.
Your ability to bond with someone --- usually a complete stranger if you're cold calling --- will have more to do with your tone of voice than anything else.
