Want to start cold calling tomorrow, some questions!

12 replies
Hi guys,
So I've decided to jump in with both feet. I don't know much about outsourcing and know only a little about designing websites. I have a homestead account but thats it.

I just want to get out there and start dialing first... I can figure out the rest later.

I need a few resources, so I am asking for help.

1. Where can I find John Durham's free script?
2. Where do I get leads? LOL
3. Is there a WSO or an ebook or something that can make things easier tomorrow... that details the step by step process of cold calling?
4. I need to create a website for my business... I can put together something on homestead in an hour or so. This should be ok right?

hmm thats all I can think of right now! I am excited!

    No, you haven't. If you were jumping in with both feet you'd be calling right now!

    1. Search the forums or ask him.
    2. The phone book.

    The others I'm not going to answer. Good luck!

      So I went ahead and did this. I was nervous but did it. I GOT ONE GUY VERY INTERESTED! This was person number 3 i spoke with.

      So he had a domain that has expired. He wants me to send him information via email. I am planning to send him a sample website, not mine since I don't have any, but something that will give him an idea of how a 5 page website will look like. Should I send him any other information?

      I also told him $25 per month hosting. Is that low? Any input guys?

    Hey Ashwin83, good for you!!

    I'd never made a cold call before as I hate folk cold calling me but I'm afraid it's part of 'the biz' that must be done. A great tip & possibly the best ever is to target a specific market. Lawyers are good as they have LOTS OF MONEY & most of their websites are old & in need of updating.

    I think it's a good thing you don't have a website yet as you could design it around your chosen market making you seam like some kind of Lawyers Web Guy (Din-Dit-Da-Din) This way you will be more appealing to them & end up talking to them in their own lingo which really does help.

    I would suggest checking out the 'Warriors For Hire' section of this site to find a pro to design your site for you.
    You don't get a second chance to make a first impression!

    I would also suggest finding John's free telemarketing report & reading it 2 - 3 times before lifting the receiver, this will put you in good stead for the ride ahead,

    Good Luck!
