Anyone else think 100 calls a day is robotic?
I signed up to close deals and get those deals using a variety of methods (I’m a relationship guy, networking etc). 100 calls a day even 50 is not for me or the move for this position (Employee Benefits).
this is a small company so there’s no one out these dialing for me, or anyone sourcing leads for me, or any inbounds but my manager is convinced the only way to get meetings is through being a robot and making a million calls a day.
ps. I’m 3.5 months into the role and I’ve even met with a client he suggested I meet for advice and she even let me know with this role just dialing isn’t going to work because it’s more of a relationship based transaction.
also, I’ve been making these dials for 2 months with very minimal results and very minimal direction, input or feedback from my manager besides “it’s a numbers game”. My response has been along the lines of “no this doesn’t fucking work and why the fuck am I still doing this?” I’ve suggested different things and get nowhere and as of last week he suggested I do what I’ve been telling him we should do all along. Anyways just went on a rant but that’s it. I’m ramping this job search up.
