The Anatomy of a Cold Call

There are two words that once spoken, can almost immediately create a mental block and unwillingness like no other: Cold Call! Why are these words grotesque to so many sales professionals?

Lack of Pipeline:

The No. 1 Reason You are not Hitting Quota

Let’s face it… selling isn't easy. Sometimes it seems easier to lure a ravenous lion with a lettuce leaf than hit your monthly sales target. Even the best, most seasoned salespeople will feel pressurized from time to time and result in them not hitting the target. It’s this pressure that spawns excuses – excuses that detract attention away from a salesperson’s performance (or lack of it).
