I delivered a training course for a company specialising in equipment for maintaining sewer infrastructure recently.

Someone mentioned what they called the 'old' way of doing business; picking up the phone and calling prospects direct.

Linkedin is a fantastic way to make those cold calls much more productive with background information on your prospects AND pre-existing rapport before you get in touch.

If you use Linkedin in the right way, it means you're much more likely to have productive and rapport-filled phone conversations.

Hope it's helpful!

  • 1. How  to  get  warm  (not  cold)   sales  calls  using  Linkedin  .  .  .             Most  people  don’t  like  getting  cold  calls  from  people  they  don’t   know  trying  to  sell  them  things.     3. It helps you learn about your prospects AND interact with them before you call so they know who you are.   Which means you get more effective sales calls and more face-to-face meetings.   5.  Look  at  your  prospects’  profiles  to  get  useful   information  so   you  can  build  rapport  and  ask   informed  questions.     6.  You  can  either  call  prospects   direct  or,  even  better,  build  up   regular  engagement  with  them  first.     7.  If  you  keep  in  touch  with  prospects,  share  useful  information,   and  offer  to  help,  you  can  build  trust  even  before  you  call.     1.   2. 4. 8.   Helping  you  get  more  leads  from  Linkedin  in  3  easy  steps   W:  tommallens.com   E:  tom@tommallens.com   T:  01926  678  920                      M:  07917  005  938                      @TomMallens   Which  is  why  Linkedin  is  such     a  powerful  tool  for  warming  up   awkward  cold  calls.   When people get back in touch, you have a two-way discussion that makes your otherwise cold call into a warm lead. 9.  It  also  quickly  helps  to   build  awareness  of  you  and   your  products  &  services,   which  is  a  great  way  to   enhance  word-­‐of-­‐mouth   awareness  and  referrals!
