Powerful Prospecting: Cold Calling Strategies for Today's World by @wendyweiss for @connectmembers


Published on

Nothing beats having a real conversation with a prospect. But the game has gotten harder. Prospects are hard to reach; they have tight budgets, little time and more and more choices. With less than 30 seconds to gain your prospect’s interest and engagement there’s no room to make a mistake and there are no second chances. In this powerful, information-packed session with Wendy Weiss, you will learn: what works in today’s tough selling environment, why prospects say they are not interested, how to get them to return your call, and how to get results on each and every call.
