Watch Me Make $1000 in 20 minutes PROOF INSIDE

by ColdCallCommando 64 replies
Hello Fellow Warriors,

My name is The Cold Call Commando. For the past 2 years I've been selling mobile websites solutions to small businesses. I want to share with you the technique I use to close deals and make money. The best part about what I do is that I travel from state to state across the US to work.

I am a mobile, mobile website salesperson. Why? Because I love to travel and I have created a lifestyle for myself that allows me to travel around the nation and help small business owners.

It's been the best 2 years of my life and I want to share with you some of the techniques I've uncovered that allows me to live a life my parents, friends and family can only imagine.

Here is my technique in a nutshell:

Step 1: I scrape all of my leads from a tool called Localizer. This allows me to target my niche and neighborhood I want to prospect to effortlessly.

Step 2. I export the CSV file of the leads I want to target and import them into a cloud based power dialer called Phone Burner. I really believe that this power dialer is one of the pillars to my success.

Step 3: I call to make an appointment with the business owners. Here is my statistics 100 calls per 1 appointment. I can make 300-400 calls per day. 1 out of ever 5 appointments is a deal. My average deal I close nets me $600.

Here is my gift to you warriors. Over the next couple of weeks I'm going to be releasing videos of my not only cold calling to get the appointments, but I have recently purchased a hidden camera that will allow me to record me closing the deals and picking up the checks...

I'm the real deal.

    I really appreciate your sharing this.

    But really, you are making 500 calls to make an average of $600. You are making a profit of $1.20 a call.

    And who would talk for a minute to make $1.20? Most. Maybe me.

    Thanks.

      Good Question. I sometimes do close over the phone but what I've found is that by meeting them face to face my referrals sky rocket. For example I sell Mr. Optomoterist a mobile website then I walk around the neighborhood showing all of the other businesses how I've helped their neighboring business and It becomes very easy for me to pick up a quick deal or two.

      It's just my preference. I have been experimenting with getting them on a webinar and I will document my results doing that as well.

      I have a simple brochure that I drop off. Really want I'm dropping off is my sales pitch. The material itself is insignificant.

        I get that I was just curious what you were giving them when you actually visit them.

    That was interesting to peek into your world through the video. I like how you use the quarter hour to set an appointment to make it stick in their minds. I read once how doing that increases the likelihood they'll keep. There's a couple of things you said and did which has me wondering if you'd get more appointments if you didn't say and do them, but hey if it's working for you, more power to you. Looking forward to hearing more.

      Me too, specifically, when he told the prospect he could stop by his office "to see that he's a legit business" or something to that effect. This actually positions you badly my opinion. A legit business doesn't need to reinforce that they are legit with a statement like that.

        Absolutely. There are definatelly room for improvements and one way I improve is by recording my calls and listening to them and taking notes at the end of the day.

        But...what's really important is ACTION. Taking the action. Am I the best cold caller in the world? NO absolutely not nor do I expect to be! What I am is consistent and persistent.

        This has allowed me to make a good amount of money and live a lifestyle where I can travel and work at the same time.

        I'm also building up valuable connections for future business projects! I just want to encourage anyone that's out there wondering if this stuff works and if they can make money selling offline services to get out there and do it.

        If I can do it some goofy kid that evidently could use a "lot of improvement" on the phone then you can do it! I'm not going to tell you how much money I make I think its stupid and that's not how I roll, but I make more money than my dad who is an engineer which is something I'm very proud of, and I've shown several of my friends how to do the same thing in their businesses as well...

    I could only get through the first call, and that was quite cringeworthy. It sounds very fake and like you have no idea what you're doing. You called her, yet you don't know if she's in Hawaii or LA, and you almost end the call because you didn't know...then you go on to be more awkward. Not only do you not qualify her at all, but she sounds like she could care less who you are and that you are coming. If you are taking the time to actually go in, don't you think it's important to have interest?

    You ask her to call you if she has a change of plans before you come in, but you never gave her a number. Was that a real call?

    It was also dragged out way too long, for no reason, get them on the phone, confirm that they are the DM, pitch, qualify and seal the appointment/sale...and move on.

    I just think you have a long way to go on your delivery, hope you keep calling and get some more experience, that's your best bet!
    Sorry if this is harsh, but that call was horrible and not a good example of anything, but now NOT to make a call.

      That's an interesting observation. True I did make mistakes, but that's the beauty of this. It's OK to make mistakes and it's OK to not be perfect. Each of these calls were deals that's why I used them.

      The lesson and the take-away I want to share with you guys is to just TAKE ACTION. None of us are going to be perfect. I've been doing this for 2 years now and I still get nervous.

      Thank's for the observation, if you're open to recording some of your cold calls I would love to hear them!

      -The Cold Call Commando

      P.S. if you don't believe it was real here is a picture of me at their studio right after I closed the deal :e)



      at 1:35 of the video you can verify the studio to the picture (you may need to full screen it)

      Then be kind enough to post a video of you cold calling and setting appointments instead of berating someone getting results, but you wouldn't know much about that.

      If that call was fake it was great acting. As for forgetting to leave his number
      people do that all the time, I know I do. Also it doesn't surprise me that she failed to ask him for it as she wasn't really that enthusiastic and once again that's my real world experience as well.

      Maybe it wasn't a good example of, "How to make a cold call" but at least I know the OP has cold called to at least one person.

    Sounds like a telemarketer. I didnt listen past the first one, but it sounds like a potential no show, however I did note the technique, the disposition of the caller, and can see the thinking behind his style...the natural reactions... I like it. Dont have to listen to more in order to say "She is probably wood", but I can see how you could hit a quota daily. You sound like a pro telemarketer. Good stuff "real deal"

    You would probably be able to keep up in a call center.

      Great question Tony. Cold calling is a numbers game there is no way around it. I'm sure there are expert callers out there that can have a better close ratio ou there just like there are people with bigger wieners than me...that's just life.

      It's actually 500 calls to make a deal. 100 calls per appointment 1 out of every 5 deals is a close. I can easily pound out 300-400 calls per day. It's about 1.25 days approximately of calling per deal. But think about it... that's about 9 hours of calling per day or roughly a 1.25 days.

      In 1.25 days I can make $600 so in 3 days I make about $1200...get my drift?

        Ah, my mistake - that's pretty good then. I hope you're building some sort of residual into the deal? If you're closing say 120 deals a year and have even a $20pm residual - 3 years down the line you'll have a monthly income of $6,000 after the inevitable drop outs.

            Thank you so much for the words of encouragement. I'm passionate about not only doing mobile marketing for my customers but also teaching other people that the phone is the quickest way to a paycheck!

            Currently my calls to gross money is something like this

            500 calls to net $600 my gross is about $700 but after deducting my overhead and expenses its about $600 net.

            I can make 500 calls in about 1.25 days. In a month I make about $5k which isn't buying me mansions but for a young guy in his 20's traveling around its nice.

            I do work the referrals and the upsells. I am currently looking into adding reputation management as part of my services.

          Yes Tony. This has been my biggest thing I need to improve on. For the pat 3 months I think to myself why haven't I implemented a good residual program. I'm thinking about charging $20-$30 a month for hosting.

          This is all a learning process for me. Right now I make a respectable amount but I realize that with the residuals I could be making double in 2 years!! Thanks for the tip!

    It would be much better to have some pro's make videos wouldn't it? However, I don't really feel a need to make one, there are plenty of great how to videos here, no one needs another one. Thanks though for the compliment.

    Edit: Oh, I just reread that, it was meant to be a dig...that's unfounded since you haven't worked with us. I would know lots about how to do it, I've got plenty of clients to keep me busy that I don't need to make free videos, I coach them on how to do it and get paid for it

    The call was just like I said, bad. She is dangling, not interested, not led at all (the dead air is horrible), if he closed her great, however it does sound fake. If the OP would tighten up his technique his sales would be even more than they are and he'd have to make less calls. It'll come with time.

      You know it's interesting because the OP is just a guy selling mobile solutions to businesses like a lot of the people on the forum are trying to do. The words of the script are good the delivery may need some work but he's not one of our competitors so I'm not sure why your attacking him.

      Then after you attack him in a public forum you don't even have the confidence to post one single recording of a call, you could even bleep out any confidential information.

      He is not here to show how good he is at cold calling he is here showing people how it is a way to see people, he's about building relationships any way he can and that's how people have to be to succeed if they are working for themselves.

      You have no website, and brag about having 4 callers. And you attack people who are just trying to give others some motivation.

      Take your rinky dink operation and leave the advice to the experts. And get a website I can't even take that facebook page seriously.

      P.S I consider myself small and I have 22 callers so what does that make you. Tone down the attitude.

    I honestly applaud the effort here, but as a Senior Warrior , I would also caution you against putting your clients contact info on the forum... you may not understand this, but if it bites you in the "weiner", you will come back and say "Wow, I should have listened". You may not get the true big brother care out of this post probably until you learn for yourself.

    There are good reasons why most experienced marketers dont post their calls. Namely, having your clients called up by a thousand people telling them you posted their call, linking them to your threads, and trying to verify your closes if I must say it outright. Listen to the voice of experience, or dont. Otherwise, "good post".

    Sincerely,

    -A guy with bite marks.

    Thanks for posting this. I'm not going to criticise or comment on your method because at least you have one. I have been trying to train cold callers for the last few months and many just ring one or two - get negative responses and give up. This despite my offering massive commissions so good on you for doing whatever it takes to get some money rolling in.

    Personally, I never visit any of my clients because I live out in the middle of the outback in a shack by a river. I just sit here in my air conditioned comfort calling and building and doing very nicely so if anything I'd like to encourage you to try just asking if they want one. I send them a few samples to their smart phones right on the first call and close the sale right then and there. By the time you've made yourself all purdy and got all your stuff together and gone down there and stuffed around I could have made a few dozen calls (at least) and guaranteed got a few sales. Try closing on the phone - it'll save you a hell of a lot of time. Just my suggestion.

      Hi, Congrats on your success. Do you build the mobile websites yourself or outsource?

        Thank you dude! I currently do the work myself most of the time, but sometimes I do outsource the work if I'm getting swamped. I use a custom Wordpress template I've developed which allows me to create these mobile websites in under 1 hour each.

        • by the way :

          what you did good on that video.

          1. your showing people the experience(that we don't get in this virtual world of ours).

          2. So when someone can listen to that video, and say to themselves, "i can do that".

          And even better say, "I would of said this and done that and it would of been better", then they are ready to get on the phone!

          3. your response to anything they said was good.

          it's not what you say initially, but what, how, and why of your response.

          you kept your demeanor, tone, etc.., the same ....
          not getting defensive or hyperventilating.

          good job

          IMO

      Yes per 100 calls I may get about 30-40 connects. But I'm basing my numbers off of gross cold calls not connects. So I would say out of 30-40 connects I can schedule 1 appointment.

    I do think this is good information, regardless of the risks you are taking.

    As you can see I decided to listen to some more calls", and it really gave me that old time feelin... Thanks.

    People can listen to this in their "pre call" sessions, and it will give them the VIBE. They can see things they would do, and other things they wouldnt... and it will help them tremendously.

    I think what you show more than anything is that it truly isnt hard, and you spread the love on thick; that love alone can make you successful.

    Again , good stuff. As you said to guy number 3 "lol. I love it".

    There are some things I wouldnt do, but there is WAAAAY more good, and skill, than bad and lack of it. I would hire you man if I still had a room.

    The biggest things I see that you have going for you are:

    1: You keep it fluid and move with the customer
    2: You manage the awkward pauses EXTREMELY well.
    3: You give off a ton of love.
    4: You mimmick personalities, like with guy number 3, you jumped right on his vibe (Alright man, cool brother...") lol
    5: You exude love!
    6: When they go astray you give them a little and go a little way with them, but you bring it back around in a timely way. (ABC Always be closing- This is a good example of that). You let them drive around the block but you always steer them back to the close in a timely way. Great timing and meter-fluidity.
    7: You pay attention to the customers vibe, and stay on it... (Its really hard to teach that- but this vid will help people see it).

    Just good stuff.

    8: On number 2 you picked up on the ladies spiritualist vibe, and used the word Karma...Good move, that put her over the top.

    On that note of number 8, that is the call I would probably critique the most if I were to do one, but I think its an example to others that this is much more about spreading the love than anything else. There are other styles of TMing, but thats the one I personally go by. It operates on a totally different system than other styles.

    9: You are showing people an example of how to address an objection 3 or 4 times in a call, and not come across like you are arguing or butting heads...smooth transitions, " Do you know what a QR code is...? Okay great...The reason I asked is because...", then you guide it right back to the pitch. Good.

    If I did something like this I would be toast, because my enemies would jump it like a bullfrog... But Im glad you were brave enough to do it, because this will help people alot.

    Kudo's bro, you are doing a good work!

    -John

    Ps. I have seen these recordings before and most arent worth commenting on... this is a real telemarketer doing his thing.

    Nice video. You seem very calm on the phone which I think gives off a good vibe with the people you are speaking to. I guess the key to cold calling is to be persistent and consistent with it until it becomes like a second nature to you so keep up the good work.

    What program did you use to record your calls by the way?

      Good job! I listened to it all.

      I thought you jumped in too quickly with the suggestion of a meeting before elaborating upon the benefits in the first call but this was overshadowed by the many positives.

      The last call in particular was impressive. Very fluid with great rapport.

      Yup that's exactly it. Being persistent and consistent is so important. The bottom line is businesses need our services and they know they need our services.

      It's our duty to not only ourselves and the families we support but also to the businesses we serve to connect with business owners and close deals.

      It may seem scary at first, but what's scarier to me is being broke. I don't know of any better way to have $1,000 in my pocket within a few days than through cold calling.

      Cheers!

      Wow man, this is an excellent thread. It shows the magic of just getting out there and taking action. Put your minimum viable product out there, hustle like you're doing, and you can grow as you make progress. You will get better on the phone as you gain experience. You will have even better products and services to offer because your continued experience will put you in position to learn what these business owners need. In the end, it is all about action. Too many people spend their lives talking about what they want to do or what they're going to do someday. You're just taking action and actually doing it. Good for you! Thanks for posting this.

    Listen, I can't thank you enough for posting this. You're getting a lot of feedback on your technique, and you're handling that feedback quite well. I really like what you've done here, with putting up actual examples of your calls, and your persistence in how you tell us to just take action. There are some real cold calling pros here, but most of us aren't cold calling pros. Just seeing (hearing) you take action is really motivational.

    I've been SUCH a wuss on cold calling, gotten courses, read books, etc, but this is the first time I've ever actually heard someone on a call like this. OK, yeah, I did cold calling for donations to a nonprofit back in the late 80s, but I never developed the skills I need. This is inspiring.

    I do want to give you, couldn't resist this, a word of caution, just in case. I'm going on the assumption on all these calls are legit. You're putting out some very sensitive information in the public domain - like people's home addresses and such. And I don't know about the laws where you are, but you've recorded phone calls, and from the flow of the calls, without consent, AND you've then posted them on a public forum.

    I'm just sayin' - be careful.

    Great post! Very motivational and you're right about not being perfect but just doing it anyway.... love that you are making sales with this.

    I still freeze on cold calling and like Daniel have read, reread, bought wso's etc. on cold calling. I actually found this because I read the cold calling threads I can find.

    Take the positives on here and don't worry at all about the negatives, at least not the one that posts a negative comment on every single cold calling thread I've ever found on here.

    Never seems to come off as helpful but knows everything about cold calling.... just seems odd to me

    Anyway, seriously keep at it and thanks for the inspiration.... YOU ROCK!!!

      Thank Kimberly. I love this stuff. I want to make this offer to you and anyone on the warrior forum.

      I will give you free 30 minutes one on one consultation on cold calling techniques. I can help you out with the following:
      • Getting over anxiety of cold calling
      • Eliminating procrastination
      • How to get past the gatekeeper
      • How to get your prospects interested in your product

      This is a no strings attached consulting. I'm entertaining putting together a coaching program on how to pick up the phone and pick up a paycheck, but before I do I want to make sure that I know the real needs and concerns of people that are interested.

    Well done and thanks for showing us!

    I would definitely try and hide the confidential informational and beep it out for future recordings, it's easy for the customer to trace back to that channel, or you should make the videos private at least so it's not searchable on youtube.

    I find it funny that you can't find a website that is linked in my sig. Great eye. I only saw that there were posts on this thread because your "re-new" of the post topic got me 14 visits to my website, 4 calls today and 2 new clients PAID in the last hour. Seems WF is in need of people that know what they are doing and you led them to me. Thanks!

    Wonder why it's ok to bash me when you know nothing about us and haven't researched well enough to click my sig and see the website, and you have nothing better to do than drag up old threads. Personally, you can keep doing it if you're going to keep driving Warriors to me that need calls. Tell me, did they call you and sign up with your 22 person call center?

    Tell me, why do I need to post videos to prove to you that I have clients and know what I'm doing? I'm not working for you, and you aren't paying me so I don't see the need there. I'm just working and getting paid and not posting on forums like you...but have fun!

    Attitude only bothers those that need to be taken down a notch...looks like you played into it.
