Who do you sell to? How do they like to be approached?

I sell to sales leaders. They love being pampered with some bull-shit, you're so amazing personalized outreach.


On LinkedIn they go hard about personalize this and personalize that, then they say if you aren't making 100 calls a day, you're selling yourself short. Such bs. Email sure, it can be personalized, but I get meetings via phone without ever giving them a gold star first.

Sales ops, revenue ops, marketing ops - These folks all work with/support sales people. They get it. Be direct, be human, and don't waste their bandwidth. 60% of the time, it works every time.

I'm in B2C sales. I've done B2B before, but wasn't right for me. I like connecting with the decision maker directly. With my job, someone has to register on our site before we reach out.

In past roles where I would cold call, I always liked starting the call with "Hi, I'm XXX with COMPANY, I know I'm calling out of the blue, and I'll be respectful of your time. INSERT QUICK LINE TO GATHER INFO or PIQUE INTEREST.

I find it lets walls down and generally solicits a good response. Hope this helps!
