Wake Up, We are in the Online Age!
Everything, from products, information and services, (including real estate) any consumer may ever need is available online with the click of a mouse, and any marketer will be STUPID to think that the best use of their time is to do cold calling.
Let me explain: Just think what goes through your mind when your phone rings and it is a number you do not know or recognize. I bet you that you immediately ask yourself the following questions:
You remember how many times do you answer and when it is a telemarketer you just want to get rid of them as fast as possible. Why? Because you are not in the market for what they sell and most importantly, you do not want to be sold to!
So you do not pick up and wait for the called to leave a voice message so you can decide if you want to speak with this caller.
JUST THINK OF YOURSELF. YOUR PHONE IS ALMOST ALWAYS WITHIN CLOSE PROXIMITY FROM YOUR BODY. THIS IS EXACTLY THE SAME WITH THE PERSON YOU ARE CALLING. IF THEY DON’T ANSWER IT IS MOST LIKELY BECAUSE THEY DO NOT WANT TO TALK WITH YOU!
Is Cold Calling a Good Idea?
Statistics show that 98% of prospects start their search to buy a home online, and they do their research online! So when virtually ALL your prospects are looking for services, products and information online, WHY ARE YOU COLD CALLING?
Lead generation should be done in a way where prospects find you, your service, your offer or solution and they ask for help so when you call then they are actually grateful to receive the call and they want to do business with you. Direct response marketing can be done in may ways but the one common denominator is that by using effective marketing strategies, prospects will be seeking you out to do business with them. They actually do the chasing. (Read the page about building your (USP) Unique Selling Proposition)
