Automated text from prospect after a cold call attempt, do you text back?

Anyone who has cold called from their cell phone has probably experienced this...


You make a dial, the prospect rejects the call, you get the automated "Can't talk right now, in a meeting." text....


What is your next step?


For me I typically look at this as permission to text back. I say who I am, why I am calling (hold my punches a bit). and then ask them when a good time for a call is.


I have found this approach extremely successful in getting that next opportunity to speak with the prospect.


What are your thoughts on cold texting a prospect after receiving an automated message?
