Do You HATE Cold Calling?

Do YOU HATE Cold Calling, Like I Do?

ringless voicemail messenger

Talking with prospects or cold calling is often a sales strategy that many sales people use.

But how many HATE to cold call?  And HOW many calls does it take to actually talk with a potential customer?

Well, the numbers are in — 8.4 calls to get ONE live person on the phone, and then you have to sort through all of those people to get to one qualified lead.

Only 2% of the calls actually result in a meeting.

Most 48% are not interested.  So, of the 9 calls you make only one is live and then only 52% might be interested.  Of those 14% say “call me back”, and 5% say send me more information.  So from that 52% now, we have 33% that are going to talk to you and then 2% of those are going to set up a meeting to discuss further.  That is a lot of cold calling to get to one new customer.

BUT, what if you could make all of those calls at once and have a high call back rate?  And no, I am not talking robo calling.

It is better than that!  Because the people that call back are the people that WANT what you HAVE!!!  Truly qualified.

And at a fraction of the cost of cold calling.

But, there are also many other ways that you can use the Voice Messenger service.

  • Restaurants can use it to increase their customer base.  (We pull a local list).
  • A special holiday message can be left from the owner of the company — this works across industries — to say “Thank YOU for your business, and Happy Holidays!”.
  • Reactivate former customers — give every single customer a call and invite them back to your store or service.
  • Keep in touch — call every customer and let them know about an upcoming event — open house, fashion show, new product arrival party, grand opening, celebrity visitor, and many more ways you can use this service.
  • The Voice Messenger service is ideal because it can be personal and everyone, yes everyone listens to their Voice Mail.  Think about it — how many voice mails do you delete without listening. I know that I listen to every single one.
  • Use it for a personal invitation from the owner.

We put it together for you!

  • We can use your list or we can create a relevant list for you.
  • We can write the script or you can.
