When should I Cold Call?

I've heard many people say that the best ( and some even say ONLY) time to cold call is from 8:30 am to 10:00 am and 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM.


I've been told that these time slots are the best because that's when your prospects are least likely to be in a meeting.


What do you guys think? because I'm really struggling to get connects when I cold call, It feels like people are ALWAYS in a meeting

8-9AM is the magic hour. People are just starting to settle into their day before shit hits the fan.

I learned to not overthink time of day. I'll save those special times for when I have high-priority people, but overall just call whenever you can.Β

I always try to call at the end of a full hour. Like 11.45 or 15.50. Just hoping the ended the meeting early and have some spare time.

Right before lunch (11:30-12) was one of my favorite times to blitz people, followed by 4-5 pm. People are most likely out of meetings and ready to go to lunch (back when we went outside) or are preparing to wind down the day.
