cold calling in US from a foreign country

7 replies
I want to get into offline marketing, especially lead generation.

I will contact offline businesses in the US. The problem is that I am Greek and I will definitely sound as a foreigner since I don't speak very good english. Will this be a turn off?

If anyone from USA is interested in testing me just send me a PM and I will add you on skype. (especially if you are just starting out in cold calling)

    The key to cold calling in America from a foreign country is to not have a "personal touch" kind of script.... Dont write a script that makes you sound like an indy. Go for the dry corporate robot pitch sound.

    Many large corporations use foreign telemarketers and people recognize that... but if you try the "guy next door", approach it wont work.

      for $6.5/month I can get unlimited calls to US with skype so that won't be a problem.
      I might have to get a local number though which will cost extra.
