How to make $0 from cold calling TODAY!

Here is how I made $0 today cold calling business to business and how you can do the same thing:

Go into a business and not talk to anyone because you are scared-

This is a wonderful way to put more money in your pocket. If you want to improve the effectiveness of this strategy, just walk around the store for 10 minutes, and waste time. Buy something to drink and put it on your credit card, this will cause you to lose money.

Instead of pitching, waste the person's time-

This is another good way. Just walk into the store and talk to the business owner without actually getting to the point. Talk about him about the smell of the store, but never actually sell. If he does want to know what you are selling, be as feeble and weak-willed as possible

Skip businesses because you think they won't buy-

This is also a good way to make $0 cold calling. If you see a business, use your ESP powers to divine whether or not the person will buy anything from you. This will keep you from accidentally finding an interested prospect.

Only work for 2 hours-

This will drain your bank account and rocket-launch you toward $0 in record time. Decide to go home after only 2 hours of working. This will ensure that you have the least possible chances of success.

Hopefully this will help you achieve your goals of $0.

If for some reason you can't make $0 doing this, than you aren't cut out for failure.

      Of course, if you called enough people in your home town asking for $1, someone would give it to you.

      That's a "sales strategy" which probably everyone uses on their first day of sales.

    I know I have used this a time or 2.. I have always always been the "shy" guy. I'm a retired Marine and Overseas Security Contractor. Then I come back and get into sales. Who knew I would be afraid to talk to people..I would do the same things. After some terrible paychecks. I started thinking about quitting. But I couldn't quit. Now, before any cold call I say to myself "If you always do what you always did. You will always get what you always got." and "I used to be scared what people thought about me until I tried to pay my bills with their opinions." I started following a few sales trainers and motivational guys. Tony Robbins and Grant Cardone. Grant seems to be my favorite. He comes off pretty arrogant but he has some pretty solid advice. Plus, if I was worth a few hundred million and had my own G-3, I would be pretty confident too..lol

    Once I started following him, my sales doubled in a month and now I'm sales manager with several teams..Just gotta rid rid of the fear of talking to strangers.....Here are a few videos I recommend to people...

      GC's material / advice has made me more money than any other person. I've pretty much unfollowed the rest. Few sources of advice is all I need right now.

        That's cool to hear. I never would have thought that someone could change me as much as he did (for the better).He does a TON of videos for FREE too. I know that is to build value for his paid content. But hey, that's what we're all here for. To MAKE MONEY! I watched almost all of his free stuff,read his book and am on his online university. Best money I ever spent on myself!

        IMO, if you are in sales, he is someone to pay attention to. Apparently he is big into affiliate and mlm marketing too.

      I know what ya mean bro. I tried cold calling before but always though that is wasn't for me. and then would take another overseas contract. Then a buddy of mine that makes a few hundred grand a year "mostly by making cold calls" was talking to me one day. He asked why a cold call scared me and getting shot at didn't. I never thought of it that way. Hell, all than can do is say no. Of even "Get the Hell out of my store/home.".More often than not they are cool as hell.

      Like Grant says, we were brought up not to talk to strangers. I got to where I like to make cold calls now. Hey, thats where the money is! Do you want to make $30k a year or $300k? The money is there. Al we have to do is ask for the sale! I can't say how much that changed my income. I would go in and "sell" my product but never ASKED for the deal! And went home without a signed contract..
