Hey, I recently tried a small mailing campaign based on 7878's awesome post (sorry, can't link yet) but I didn't get any response yet. So I think I'll start calling people up tomorrow,but wanted to see if anybody was having success cold calling people for reputation management. I am trying to avoid being salesy at all, so I was thinking of calling as a potential customer, but let's be honest...I am trying to be sneaky. I want to basically call up businesses with bad reviews and say something like "I was looking for a (Niche in City) and saw you guys had some bad online reviews...can you explain those" or something along those lines. I haven't had much luck with cold calling so I'm fully expecting people to explain away their bad reviews in 2 seconds then ask me what I needed with them. And I don't want to then be like "uhhh, I was just kidding". Hope that makes sense. Just curious to see if anybody else is calling local businesses up for ORM and how it's going. Thanks! Edit: I'm not looking for any scripts or anything like that...just a general sense of what other people are up to.
