Cold calling is an essential skill to have for any business no matter how big or small. I have zero cold calling experience and wish to become an expert (top 5%) phone salesman by the end of the year. Obviously i need to get on the phone and start calling but my problem is that i cannot sell/recommend a product/service i dont believe in which is the case for almost 90% of all products out there. Maybe i should do appointment setting campaigns instead. I was wondering how many other folks here are genuinely interested in improving their cold calling skills. I want to create a skype group where people can practice cold calling everyday by pitching to each other and critiquing each other's pitch. I got this idea from Grant Cardone where he invites his audience to cold call him on a live show. Seriously folks, if we invest some time into this we can get beat all 5 of those callers on the show. You dont have to be an cold calling expert to join the group - i am sure we can all chip in with some advice and help each other out with our collective wisdom. What i dont want is a bunch of time-wasters. So anyone up for it?
