Cold Calling via EmailCold-call by e-mail
Expend your free email to personalize and customize each cold email and always direct it to a particular individual (if you don't know who it is, find out before you contact them). Recipients will be able to see that you have taken the trouble and amount of your own research into your business and will be able to see why you think they are a good match for your products or services.
There is nothing faster than sending an e-mail to the right individual, occupation, company or sex. Make sure you have 100% confidence in your research every single turn before clicking Submit. Don't insult someone with too much information in a phone call or email.
In a nutshell, tell them that extra information can be sent by email (or include it when you send an email) and give them a clear picture of your business, the products or services you offer, and why they benefit. Topic line is the first thing someone will see in their crowded mailbox, so make your first appearance and give them a good excuse to open your email.
In cold calling it is important to pin the introduction and make a good first impact right from the beginning. Begin with your name, your professional designation and your business and ask if you have a few moments to talk about your products or services. And the best way to be self-assured and courteous on the telephone is to be smiling!
This may seem strange, but scientific, with a smile on your face while you speak on the telephone, can raise your cold call play because it conveys your vote as lively, self-assured and kind. Smiles also generate affirmative vibrations, so that the recipient is much more likely to hear and deal with your vote and give you plenty of opportunity to clarify your proposed transaction.
Don't ever seem impolite or intrusive on a call or email, and if someone says they're not interested, you have to show your appreciation. Subscribe to a cold email or a telephone call with one weeks notice if there was no reply from the initial bet. Don't keep writing e-mails or calling every single night because it's angry and frantic.
Instead, if you haven't replied, email them a follow-up e-mail, or try calling again if you leave a voice message, and ask if they've got your first point of call and if they want more information. When there is no reaction to the follow-up, let it go and move on to other interested parties.
Unless you receive a reply to the vast majority of your follow-up phone and email messages, you may want to consider a new way of approaching your selling efforts to make sure it's not your words that are the issue. Calling cold and e-mailing need not be traumatic experiences. By incorporating these 8 hints into your selling strategies, you can create more lead and conversions by cold calling and email.
