Cold Calling into Voice Mail
Greetings yal,I had a question I wanted to run by you. One of my friends said that she often does cold calling for her business (education support or something) to potential clients after hours and goes straight to voice mail, leaves her message and gets call backs.Well, I thought this sounded like a decent idea, so I am in the process of trying it out, I hired an intern, trained her and we makign the calls. We just started on Friday, so I will let you know how it pans out. We will probably make calls between 615-745pm and hope to just drop the messages into voice mail.The script goes something like:* Greetings, our name, company name, we are the preferred vendor for web development for North Carolina A&T (we say that to lend credibility)* Say how we are calling on purpose after 5, so not to distract you from your business* Make our pitch on how we can help you get on the internet or expand your current website* Say if not for you, just delete if it is for you contact us via phone or websiteSo, what do you think? effective use of time? waste of time? or tweak it somehow?C.
