So, I've been working on other projects while my pipeline has been drying up, and every now & thenmaking short bursts of cold calling from time to time ... UNTIL NOW!
Now, I'm going ALL OUT! ... ( I have a $xx,xxx goal I am FIXED ON earning this month!!! Cold calling, email, networking, whatever!!!)
Today, so far (its about 2:30p), I got started at 10am and I've been calling since...
Here's my breakdown:
**Live Contacts: 95
Full Pitches: 2
Phone Appt: 1
Sales: 0 (so far, hoping to get one before end of the day)
Product/Service Offer: (Mobile) Website + SEO
**Most of the live calls have either been answering services, dispatchers, or another secretary (usually a relative).
Besides that, the rest of my live calls that HAVE been answered by owners (I believe about 12 of them), have not been interested. Either because they focus on big apartments only, or certain types of industrial/commercial jobs or hotels etc...
The ones that were residential service oriented, had either "no budget for advertising", "already too busy", or just not interested.
Oh one more thing: I'm calling big cities and running into a lot of the "big plumbing guys" ( the ones on TV).
Anyway, so, I thought I should check things out with the Real "Cold-Blood-Closers" to see where I'm doing it all "wrong"
Here's my pitch (dunno know exactly how I came up with it, but, so far people have been pleasant - even if they're not "biting"...yet)
Intro Pitch: Hi, my name is (first name) with (company name). I work with plumbers to help get more customers & more plumbing jobs. I recently helped (plumber name) grow from 2 to 3 jobs per week to where now he's doing 5 to 8 new jobs per week. That's almost having one new customer per day...
Before I go any further, is this a good time to discuss how we could also help grow your plumbing business?
That's my intro...before I go into my full pitch.
And so far, I've only done 2 full pitches, so far, its just been dispatchers taking messages and the "not interested" before or at the end of my intro.
So, where have I got it all "wrong"?
Thanks in advance!
P.S. - There are 3 specific people that I would REALLY, REALLY love to hear from ... one of them is live right now
