If you are in Direct Sales you most likely know what warm calling is. When you first started your business, your recruiter probably asked you to make a list of the people you were going to contact about your business. This is known as your warm market. People you know and are in contact with somehow or another.
Cold Calling is the opposite. You do not know these people and don’t even know if they are interested in your goods or services. Since we are not able to “call” anyone any more And calling is not the most effective method with Direct Sales, we are going to call it Cold marketing.
I am going to give you some tips and encouragement along the way to help you will learning how to cold market. Help you select the right people to cold market to and be most effective.
