Cold Calling: The Ultimate Sales Guide for Shy People

If you want to focus on sourcing credible leads and actually closing deals right over the phone, then continue reading....

"To become a successful salesperson, you have to develop a solid base of prospects...The calls you make today will generate sales months from now." (D. Tyre)

If you're in sales, you know how hard it is and how long it takes to build up a book of business. Trust me, I know. It doesn't happen overnight and it's definitely not easy. But who's going to answer all of our questions?

How do I get past the gate keeper? Am I asking the right questions? Are voicemails okay?

If you don't understand the immediate answers to the above, you're not alone.

You see, cold calling has become so much more than just a way to get ahead, it's a necessity just to hit your numbers.

Inside, you'll find not only the answers to the aforementioned questions but a deeper knowledge and understanding of the sales cycle itself and how to control the conversation over the phone with a complete stranger.

In Cold Calling, discover:

  • What cold calling really is
  • Why it is an absolute must
  • The rules of the game
  • How to develop a top notch script
  • How to grab your prospect's attention
  • Cold calling myths and success stories
  • How to overcome rejection the first time

Waiting for the punchline

Quick and clear book. High level approach without specific tips of techniques. "This is what you'll need" except the narrator never really mentions how to do those things. Feels more like a pitch for a second book than something useful

Wish there were more scripts

Encouraging for anyone starting out in cold calling. I wish there were more examples of what to say and some common objections and how to overcome them when cold calling.

Should’ve been named “telemarketing “ not very useful

Should’ve been named “telemarketing “ . I assumed “Cold calling” would include some face to face cold calling .

Short and basic.

Short and basic. Enough for newbies, but a very shallow dive for even minimally experienced people. Telling people to "make friends" is not equivalent to explaining how to do it. Worth the price.

The "executioner IRS CPA" stays aware of considering expense and bookkeeping customers much better in the wake of perusing this book.
