Cold calling can seem daunting. You have a list of numbers to call each day, and you may find that your calls go to voicemail more often than to an actual person. You can’t seem to get someone on a call, much less set up an actual appointment. You try to call more people, but get the same results.

When I first started cold calling, I struggled to get prospects on the phone. I diligently worked through my list of numbers, often with little success. Then I changed my approach, and for six straight months I booked at least 15 appointments each day. After learning these three cold calling rules,

Even if a salesperson closed the largest deal in your company’s history last quarter — or even last week — and hit their quota early, it doesn’t mean they can go home for the rest of the month. Working in sales often evokes the adage: “What have you done for me lately?”

Organizations hire sales teams to push inbound leads through the funnel and approach prospective clients. The latter requires a certain number of “nos” to reach one “yes.” But to help managers understand the messaging and the number of dials, emails and other touches it takes to get to that one “yes,” sales teams need to capture more information than ever before.

A plane full of young people crashes violently against the snow-capped peaks of the Andes mountain range while one of them is heard praying the Hail Mary hoping to survive the accident. This is one of the most iconic scenes from the Live! Movie. by Franck Marshall ; a film that any Latin American has seen at least once and that he remembers as one of the most inspiring works on human resilience and the power of faith.
