How many reach outs (email, call, LinkedIn, etc.) with no response does it take for you to take that prospect off your list?

I max out at about ten, usually it's a combination of emails and calls. I don't use LI to reach out to prospects. I don't give up on them completely, I just make note to reach out to them again in 3 months or so and start the process again.

Why don't you use LI for prospects?

It's never been used at my company. I figure that if I'm calling someone (both office and cell,) and emailing them and they aren't answering me...they're probably not going to answer me on LinkedIn, either.ย 

It doesn't mean I'd NEVER use it, but I don't have trouble getting ahold of people by my usual methods so I don't see a need to use it right now.

Sharks die when they stop moving. Give each channel a shot. I personally like texts/emails. LinkedIn a close second...

Calls, I understand, but don't get past google assistant.ย

Research saying it takes at least 8 touches on AVERAGE to connect

Iโ€™ve seen the same thing. I made a sale last month that took 11 touches before the first convo

21 calls and 3 emails. We require 3 calls a day for 7 days. If you donโ€™t contact them during that time period it comes off the list. ย

It works well. We've been doing it this way for years.

emails : 3
calls : no count
LinkedIn : 2 and couple of engagement on posts (if any)

reason : people who like to give you a bother, would do so with either of these

If it is a hot lead I will give them a call each week just to see if I can ever get them, I give up with emails and LinkedIn after 2-3 messages

For all you mail mergers out there, do you see more success emailing one DM or all DMs on a custom thread? I've noticed that putting all relevant DMs on one campaign that is 100% customized to their business has a much higher response rate (28% meeting sucess)
