cold calling mood?

Is cold calling dead? I consider that a call can be a game-changer, especially if your product is complex and specific.ย 


What are the tactics/routines/rituals you and your teams apply to get into the right mindset for cold calling?

I think it is relatively dead. Most of my cold calls happen after I engage in emails. I think we are the age of cold emailing now.

For me itโ€™s the opposite. I start with a cold call and then send a follow up email.ย

I think itโ€™s industry specific but to say itโ€™s dead, far from it.

depending on the outreach - inbound/outbound - b2b/b2c - based on that you can leverage different approaches including email and LinkedIn
