3 Highly Effective Cold Call Tips Backed by Data
Cold calling is something that we’re both familiar with — we’ve both probably have done it at some point in our careers.
If you listen to LinkedIn discussions you would think cold calling is no longer an effective strategy.
I’m here to tell you that’s dead wrong, and that cold calling is extremely effective in 2022.
Don’t believe me? Then check out these stats:
- 69% of buyers have taken calls from new companies in the past year
