For some of my clients I have actually been doing a little bit of cold calling. When I started doing this I dreaded it as I did not at all know how to cold call sales prospects in an effective manner. I am not too sure why I continued experimenting with it but for some reason I did. As I did I found I was able to get some success as a refined my skills. I still don't know that I really like it but it is becoming more interesting. I have also started to pick up on some tips or tactics I changed that have significantly increased my success rate. Here is a list of just a few of the tips I have learned and started to implement.
