“This is a sales call, do you wanna hang up now or can we talk for a few minutes?”
Saw someone bring this up on Reddit and I’m curious.
What do y’all savages think about this opening for cold calls?
Not sure, gotta give it a shot
Now way this works

📞 Cold Calling
😎 Sales Skills
I don't invite people to hang up on me, period.
Personally, I'm not a fan of this approach because it insinuates the prospect's time is more important than mine. I like to start and continue my sales processes on equal footing with my prospects.
I like your take on this. I personally believe that equal footing in a sales conversation is very important, otherwise it’s just skewed and one of us is wasting our time
Guru Ghanesh: "Hi Jim, this is Ghanesh from Sandler, this is a cold call. Let me guess you're filled with excitement and anticipation"
Wow, how do you follow through with that?

Director of Sales
I know a few people who use a variation of this, but asking for a ‘few minutes’ might put people off.
you could adapt it to something like “this is a sales call but as you’ve already answered let me tell you why I called and you can let me know if it’s worth taking further”
softer, non comital and will allow you to get your hook/value prop out 9/10 times.

people like honesty haha
I’ve tried similar stuff before. It’s totally hit or miss.
Chief Revenue Officer
I’ve read a few different versions of this, but they all have the same concept of “disarming” the prowler with the opening. I don’t personally care for the “hang up now” part; but I love the disarming opening to a cold call.
Like "The Purge" but for sales.. 1 day a year where you can say whatever you want to prospects
What can you say in bed that you can also say in a sales meeting?
Truth time: do you have those days where a legit prospect picks up a call and you hang up when they answer ?
