22min/day from cold caling GREATNESS.

26 replies
I used to suck at cold calling, until I started doing this.

Here's my routine.

I drive to the park (5 minutes)
I listen to daily audio bible while taking a walk around the park.
So that's a bit of exercise as well (10 minutes)
I follow that lap with 2 minutes of meditation, it's just ummm ummmm (listen), breath (listen) breath (listen), ummm ummmm (listen)...u c?
Then I get in my car and sing along with a song, (get into it).
At this point i'm arriving back home in my car (5 minutes), when you open the door, sit there for a minute and listen to sounds, but don't focus on the sounds, focus on the silence between the sounds.

Now, you'll be living in the moment and person youre selling to won't be, giving you a distinct advantage in response time.

    I actually listen to music and sing along loudly before I begin my cold calling sessions - helps to warm up the voice hahaha.

        I'll take being weird and living entirely in the moment all day every day, over being normal, and thinking all the time, instead of living.

    I guess this might work .

    I'm gonna try a variation of it. I trained myself to cold-call without fear, but I have no routine I follow before I start.

    Good going.

      .... Just one?

      I was tought, when you make a sale.. don't stop.. ever.. for any excuse.

      When you hit a sale. keep going, the more sales you make, the more you will make.
      So never, ever ... stop the roll.

    Ya Ken, You're absolutely correct once the flood gates open up go with it! If you are on a roll go with it.

    But for me it depends on what kind of deals you are closing or the services you are offering one or two a day might be just fine :-)

    I think the OP has a cool idea but it wont be for everybody. You can't expect what works for someone else to work for you. I don't do anything special particularly, I just get my game face/voice on and start hustling.

    I guess if it works for you, do it, but that routine daily would have me tired out before I get to work! Having done this for years, I tend to wake up...wander downstairs, eat breakfast, find a movie or something on DVR and start calling. Some of my most productive days are in pj's

      I just get on the phone and let it rip, BAM, BOOM, smiles and dials, collects paychecks.

      No humming, no chanting, no spooky stuff.

      OP, until you REMOVE those crutches, you WILL NEVER become a superstar!

      Until you get in attack mode, your production will be mediocre or worse.

      By the way, you sound like Time Tebow, LOL.

    Attack mode...BAM...BOOM?

    Sounds like a crutch to me also, unless of course you walk around like that in normal life.

    The OP is stating what works for him, and what works for all of us is different, saying he'll never be a superstar isn't a bad thing.

    If being a "superstar" means sounding like an idiot.

    I am never in attack mode on the phone, I don't even know what that means. Are you trying to scare people into buying your product? Sounds like hype and someone who has zero idea of how to talk to people. These are the kinds of ads you see everywhere, and when I see them on CL or somewhere else I report them as spam. No serious adult uses the terms "ROCK STAR, SUPERSTAR, BAM, BOOM" to post a job, or describe themselves.
