Watch Me Make $1000 in 20 minutes PROOF INSIDE

by 64 comments
Hello Fellow Warriors,

My name is The Cold Call Commando. For the past 2 years I've been selling mobile websites solutions to small businesses. I want to share with you the technique I use to close deals and make money. The best part about what I do is that I travel from state to state across the US to work.

I am a mobile, mobile website salesperson. Why? Because I love to travel and I have created a lifestyle for myself that allows me to travel around the nation and help small business owners.

It's been the best 2 years of my life and I want to share with you some of the techniques I've uncovered that allows me to live a life my parents, friends and family can only imagine.

Here is my technique in a nutshell:

Step 1: I scrape all of my leads from a tool called Localizer. This allows me to target my niche and neighborhood I want to prospect to effortlessly.

Step 2. I export the CSV file of the leads I want to target and import them into a cloud based power dialer called Phone Burner. I really believe that this power dialer is one of the pillars to my success.

Step 3: I call to make an appointment with the business owners. Here is my statistics 100 calls per 1 appointment. I can make 300-400 calls per day. 1 out of ever 5 appointments is a deal. My average deal I close nets me $600.

Here is my gift to you warriors. Over the next couple of weeks I'm going to be releasing videos of my not only cold calling to get the appointments, but I have recently purchased a hidden camera that will allow me to record me closing the deals and picking up the checks...

I'm the real deal.

    I really appreciate your sharing this.

    But really, you are making 500 calls to make an average of $600. You are making a profit of $1.20 a call.

    And who would talk for a minute to make $1.20? Most. Maybe me.

    Thanks.

    Why don't you try and close them on the phone?

    All of that driving around to drop off material has got suck.

      Good Question. I sometimes do close over the phone but what I've found is that by meeting them face to face my referrals sky rocket. For example I sell Mr. Optomoterist a mobile website then I walk around the neighborhood showing all of the other businesses how I've helped their neighboring business and It becomes very easy for me to pick up a quick deal or two.

      It's just my preference. I have been experimenting with getting them on a webinar and I will document my results doing that as well.

    So what kind of material do you give them at the meeting?

    Enjoyed your video.

      I have a simple brochure that I drop off. Really want I'm dropping off is my sales pitch. The material itself is insignificant.

    you have a great phone voice calm and reassuring

    I think getting them to a webinar sounds better
  • Profile picture of the author Dimitris Skiadas
    One of the best things i ve noticed, is that you have a really calm voice.

    This is the secret to success.You are confident to what you are saying.

    Good job.Thanks for the video.

    That was interesting to peek into your world through the video. I like how you use the quarter hour to set an appointment to make it stick in their minds. I read once how doing that increases the likelihood they'll keep. There's a couple of things you said and did which has me wondering if you'd get more appointments if you didn't say and do them, but hey if it's working for you, more power to you. Looking forward to hearing more.

      I'm not much of a cold caller so it's nice to see this in action. Looking forward to your updates.

      Me too, specifically, when he told the prospect he could stop by his office "to see that he's a legit business" or something to that effect. This actually positions you badly my opinion. A legit business doesn't need to reinforce that they are legit with a statement like that.

    I could only get through the first call, and that was quite cringeworthy. It sounds very fake and like you have no idea what you're doing. You called her, yet you don't know if she's in Hawaii or LA, and you almost end the call because you didn't know...then you go on to be more awkward. Not only do you not qualify her at all, but she sounds like she could care less who you are and that you are coming. If you are taking the time to actually go in, don't you think it's important to have interest?

    You ask her to call you if she has a change of plans before you come in, but you never gave her a number. Was that a real call?

    It was also dragged out way too long, for no reason, get them on the phone, confirm that they are the DM, pitch, qualify and seal the appointment/sale...and move on.

    I just think you have a long way to go on your delivery, hope you keep calling and get some more experience, that's your best bet!
    Sorry if this is harsh, but that call was horrible and not a good example of anything, but now NOT to make a call.

      That's an interesting observation. True I did make mistakes, but that's the beauty of this. It's OK to make mistakes and it's OK to not be perfect. Each of these calls were deals that's why I used them.

      The lesson and the take-away I want to share with you guys is to just TAKE ACTION. None of us are going to be perfect. I've been doing this for 2 years now and I still get nervous.

      Thank's for the observation, if you're open to recording some of your cold calls I would love to hear them!

      P.S. if you don't believe it was real here is a picture of me at their studio right after I closed the deal :e)



      at 1:35 of the video you can verify the studio to the picture (you may need to full screen it)

      Then be kind enough to post a video of you cold calling and setting appointments instead of berating someone getting results, but you wouldn't know much about that.

      If that call was fake it was great acting. As for forgetting to leave his number
      people do that all the time, I know I do. Also it doesn't surprise me that she failed to ask him for it as she wasn't really that enthusiastic and once again that's my real world experience as well.

      Maybe it wasn't a good example of, "How to make a cold call" but at least I know the OP has cold called to at least one person.

    Sounds like a telemarketer. I didnt listen past the first one, but it sounds like a potential no show, however I did note the technique, the disposition of the caller, and can see the thinking behind his style...the natural reactions... I like it. Dont have to listen to more in order to say "She is probably wood", but I can see how you could hit a quota daily. You sound like a pro telemarketer. Good stuff "real deal"

    You would probably be able to keep up in a call center.

    That's real world - thanks so much for posting the vid

    So approx 1750 calls to make a $600 sale - there has to be an easier way?

      Great question Tony. Cold calling is a numbers game there is no way around it. I'm sure there are expert callers out there that can have a better close ratio ou there just like there are people with bigger wieners than me...that's just life.

      It's actually 500 calls to make a deal. 100 calls per appointment 1 out of every 5 deals is a close. I can easily pound out 300-400 calls per day. It's about 1.25 days approximately of calling per deal. But think about it... that's about 9 hours of calling per day or roughly a 1.25 days.

      In 1.25 days I can make $600 so in 3 days I make about $1200...get my drift?

    It would be much better to have some pro's make videos wouldn't it? However, I don't really feel a need to make one, there are plenty of great how to videos here, no one needs another one. Thanks though for the compliment.

    Edit: Oh, I just reread that, it was meant to be a dig...that's unfounded since you haven't worked with us. I would know lots about how to do it, I've got plenty of clients to keep me busy that I don't need to make free videos, I coach them on how to do it and get paid for it

    The call was just like I said, bad. She is dangling, not interested, not led at all (the dead air is horrible), if he closed her great, however it does sound fake. If the OP would tighten up his technique his sales would be even more than they are and he'd have to make less calls. It'll come with time.

      The OP had the minerals to post up a video of his calls so that puts him way ahead of you as someone who's providing value right here regardless of your claimed superiority as a "pro".

    Sorry OP, I didn't see your request for me to record some calls so you can hear them, we don't do that, we have 4 callers that make about 600-800 calls a day...it's just not necessary. However, if you want some pointers or training, your welcome to get with me.

      You know it's interesting because the OP is just a guy selling mobile solutions to businesses like a lot of the people on the forum are trying to do. The words of the script are good the delivery may need some work but he's not one of our competitors so I'm not sure why your attacking him.

      Then after you attack him in a public forum you don't even have the confidence to post one single recording of a call, you could even bleep out any confidential information.

      He is not here to show how good he is at cold calling he is here showing people how it is a way to see people, he's about building relationships any way he can and that's how people have to be to succeed if they are working for themselves.

      You have no website, and brag about having 4 callers. And you attack people who are just trying to give others some motivation.

      Take your rinky dink operation and leave the advice to the experts. And get a website I can't even take that facebook page seriously.

      P.S I consider myself small and I have 22 callers so what does that make you. Tone down the attitude.

    I honestly applaud the effort here, but as a Senior Warrior , I would also caution you against putting your clients contact info on the forum... you may not understand this, but if it bites you in the "weiner", you will come back and say "Wow, I should have listened". You may not get the true big brother care out of this post probably until you learn for yourself.

    There are good reasons why most experienced marketers dont post their calls. Namely, having your clients called up by a thousand people telling them you posted their call, linking them to your threads, and trying to verify your closes if I must say it outright. Listen to the voice of experience, or dont. Otherwise, "good post".

    Sincerely,

    -A guy with bite marks.

      Yes, thank you. I really love sharing this stuff with people. I've taught 5 people how to pick up the phones to pick up a paycheck.

      You're right though jeopardizing my business isn't worth proving myself right in this forum. Makes me double think sharing valuable information like this!

    Thanks for posting this. I'm not going to criticise or comment on your method because at least you have one. I have been trying to train cold callers for the last few months and many just ring one or two - get negative responses and give up. This despite my offering massive commissions so good on you for doing whatever it takes to get some money rolling in.

    Personally, I never visit any of my clients because I live out in the middle of the outback in a shack by a river. I just sit here in my air conditioned comfort calling and building and doing very nicely so if anything I'd like to encourage you to try just asking if they want one. I send them a few samples to their smart phones right on the first call and close the sale right then and there. By the time you've made yourself all purdy and got all your stuff together and gone down there and stuffed around I could have made a few dozen calls (at least) and guaranteed got a few sales. Try closing on the phone - it'll save you a hell of a lot of time. Just my suggestion.

    Those are 500 calls made not answered right? If I call 100 ppl a day I might talk to 40! Its amazing to me on how many businesses dont answer their phone.

      Yes per 100 calls I may get about 30-40 connects. But I'm basing my numbers off of gross cold calls not connects. So I would say out of 30-40 connects I can schedule 1 appointment.

    I do think this is good information, regardless of the risks you are taking.

    As you can see I decided to listen to some more calls", and it really gave me that old time feelin... Thanks.

    People can listen to this in their "pre call" sessions, and it will give them the VIBE. They can see things they would do, and other things they wouldnt... and it will help them tremendously.

    I think what you show more than anything is that it truly isnt hard, and you spread the love on thick; that love alone can make you successful.

    Again , good stuff. As you said to guy number 3 "lol. I love it".

    There are some things I wouldnt do, but there is WAAAAY more good, and skill, than bad and lack of it. I would hire you man if I still had a room.

    The biggest things I see that you have going for you are:

    1: You keep it fluid and move with the customer
    2: You manage the awkward pauses EXTREMELY well.
    3: You give off a ton of love.
    4: You mimmick personalities, like with guy number 3, you jumped right on his vibe (Alright man, cool brother...") lol
    5: You exude love!
    6: When they go astray you give them a little and go a little way with them, but you bring it back around in a timely way. (ABC Always be closing- This is a good example of that). You let them drive around the block but you always steer them back to the close in a timely way. Great timing and meter-fluidity.
    7: You pay attention to the customers vibe, and stay on it... (Its really hard to teach that- but this vid will help people see it).

    Just good stuff.

    8: On number 2 you picked up on the ladies spiritualist vibe, and used the word Karma...Good move, that put her over the top.

    On that note of number 8, that is the call I would probably critique the most if I were to do one, but I think its an example to others that this is much more about spreading the love than anything else. There are other styles of TMing, but thats the one I personally go by. It operates on a totally different system than other styles.

    9: You are showing people an example of how to address an objection 3 or 4 times in a call, and not come across like you are arguing or butting heads...smooth transitions, " Do you know what a QR code is...? Okay great...The reason I asked is because...", then you guide it right back to the pitch. Good.

    If I did something like this I would be toast, because my enemies would jump it like a bullfrog... But Im glad you were brave enough to do it, because this will help people alot.

    Kudo's bro, you are doing a good work!

    -John

    Ps. I have seen these recordings before and most arent worth commenting on... this is a real telemarketer doing his thing.

    Nice video. You seem very calm on the phone which I think gives off a good vibe with the people you are speaking to. I guess the key to cold calling is to be persistent and consistent with it until it becomes like a second nature to you so keep up the good work.

    What program did you use to record your calls by the way?
    • Profile picture of the author Daniel Evans
      Good job! I listened to it all.

      I thought you jumped in too quickly with the suggestion of a meeting before elaborating upon the benefits in the first call but this was overshadowed by the many positives.

      The last call in particular was impressive. Very fluid with great rapport.

      Yup that's exactly it. Being persistent and consistent is so important. The bottom line is businesses need our services and they know they need our services.

      It's our duty to not only ourselves and the families we support but also to the businesses we serve to connect with business owners and close deals.

      It may seem scary at first, but what's scarier to me is being broke. I don't know of any better way to have $1,000 in my pocket within a few days than through cold calling.

      Cheers!
