ive been doing great with my cold-calling recently, but my last phone call knocked my confidence slightly.
After having a good roll of 10 or so calls i started speaking to this woman and asked to speak to Sue (the owner of the company) - straight away she replied quite intimidatingly with "Is this a Sales call?". I hesitated slightly which i hardly ever do and just said "yep" in sort of a childish just about to cry voice. I knew as soon as she asked that i wasnt getting anywhere and now when i look back on the call i feel pathetic. I normally find it easy to get past the gate-keeper, but that one question just hit me straight in the face and i was lost.
As i anticipated i didnt get to speak to the owner, she was apparently "out" - But i know that i had messed it up with my reply.
So what do you guys think, how do you respond to that question?
I cant think of anything other to say than yes haha.
