I have just started my first cold calling by phone today.I have a business online but my strategy is to offer web design services to offline businesses so i started using cold caling.
I am finding it really tough to get past the gate keepers on the phone. Any advice you can give.I am also putting ads up on craigs list so i get other telemarketers doing this in the future. My goal is to set appointments from the cold call, not sell and then visit the business owner and close the deal.
Just wondering if anyone has experience in this area and what tips you can give.Also does anyone have a good cold call script i can use?Trying to do this on the fly is not the best strategy i feel.
