The numbers game - does it get better?

War Room peeps,


How in the hell do you manage to stay level-headed?


From last week and up to today, I've made 446 total dials. Resulting in a whopping 27 connects.


Is what they say about the highs and lows true...


Do I just need to keep my head on strong and rock and roll forward or should I slow it down a little?

Have to mix it up. Calls emails have fun with it. Power hour for calls then get personal with emails. Trust that the work you do now may pay off in 3 weeks to 6 months. We want results immediately but it takes time.Β

Yeah, I could probably get a little better on personal emails. I’ve just attached folks to a 3-4 email sequence and let it rip. Healthcare leaders are some tough ass prospects.

Healthcare is a pain and you’re probably like 395 on their list of things to do. But if you can get their buy in the $$$ is worth it

All I'll say is if it works for you, it works. Stick to it.Β 

Omnichannel is always best to stay creative and stuff though.

Granted, some of these are wrong numbers and typical nuances. But yeah, out here grinding my heart out.

I come from 2 start ups so I guess it’s just in my nature to hit it hard but I would definitely love to leverage LinkedIn more.

Just sucks because I’ve noticed that my personas aren’t the most active peeps on LI - nor do they live in an email inbox.

Are you my former drill sergeant? ETS is damn near tattoo on my forehead πŸ˜€ But, I do get it. I think it’s realizing that immediate results don’t just happen in this ballpark. It’s a long game and the person who can survive the longest will end up thriving.

Yeah, I do feel like some people need to put in some more effort so this isn’t a bad idea. It’s a slap in the face when you put in those kind of numbers and others are doing 20-30 a day.Β
