    12 Handy Tips for Generating Leads through Cold-Calling - If youíre an advertising...


    (Page 2 of 4 )

    TIP FOR COPYWRITERS: If youíre an advertising copywriter or website copywriter, ask to speak to the Marketing Manager (or if the person who answers the phone says they don't have a marketing manager, ask for "the person who looks after your advertising & website" - all businesses have that person - it's generally one of the owners).

    4) Always try to get on with the gatekeepers

    Receptionists and personal assistants have great influence, and quite often do more of the real work and decision making than the person youíre trying to contact! Make friends with them and youíve got a foot in the door. (But donít waste their time or crawl Ė they get a lot of that!)

    5) Keep it short Ďn sweet

    When you do get to speak with someone, keep it short 'n sweet unless they want to talk a lot. The purpose of the phone call is to get their attention, let them know you're there, get their name and contact details, and assess whether they have any requirement for your services. (TIP FOR COPYWRITERS: If youíre an advertising copywriter or website copywriter, you might have called about brochure writing and then find out they need web writing.)

    6) DONíT HARD SELL!!!

    Donít pressure people or make it hard for them to get off the phone. Tell them what you do and that you'd like to send them an email with a link to your website with samples and testimonials (or with an attachment containing samples), then leave them to it.
