What days/times are most productive for your cold calls? (Heaven forbid you have to do this)

what about for you?

Before 10am and after 4pm surprisingly have been huge successes for me. Catching a prospect right before they start their daily grind or right after has worked well for me.

same, I think catching them right when they get to work and before EOD has surprisingly good success for me.Β

Thanks fox. Should I just search old posts before putting anything up?

I try to never call at the start of an hour as prospects are more likely to be going into meetings.

Great point. So when do you expect meetings not to be happening?

I kinda like Friday afternoon. The prospects mostly are just finishing up the week and have some time.Β

Anywhere between 9am-11am and then 2pm-3pm. The 4:30pm-5:00pm can be pretty lucrative as well, sometimes you catch people right before they leave

I’ve never had a ton of luck with people at the end of the day. I should keep trying
