6 cold calling scripts

  1. 1. Copyright ©RAIN Group 1 6 Value-Based Cold Calling Approaches: Sample Scripts #1: Best Practice Approach [Name] Sharon, this is Lee Adama. [Organization] I’m with Caprica City Technologies. [Introduction—direct] We’ve never spoken before, [What we do] But we focus on working with pharmaceutical companies to help run the most efficient clinical trials . . . [Aspiration or affliction, couched in best practice (Capture attention)] I’m calling because we’ve just completed a major benchmark research study to identify the key drivers of cost reduction and speed improvement in clinical trials, and at the same time, maintain high-quality standards . . . [PAUSE] [Offer (Generate interest)] I’ll be in southern New Jersey on June 14 and 15 at a client site. As a way of introducing Caprica, I’d be happy to come by and take a few minutes to share with you the research results. I think you’ll find them pretty eye-opening. [Call to action] I was looking at the 14th in the afternoon or the 15th in the morning to meet. #2: Straight Results Approach [Name] Bill, I’m Helena Cain. [Organization] I’m with Pegasus Fundraising. [Introduction—trigger] I read in the Chronicle of Higher Education that you just joined Gemanon College as their new vice president of development. [What we do] We focus on working with college and university development organizations . . . [Aspiration or affliction, couched in results achieved (Capture attention)] . . . to help them increase their fundraising results by an average of 15% per campaign. We recently completed successful campaigns with a state university and the College of Astral Queen . . . [PAUSE] [Offer (Generate interest)] I saw in your alumni magazine that your fundraising goal for this coming year is about $40 million . . . a 15% increase would be $6 million more. [Call to action] Are you available next Tuesday or Wednesday in the morning to see how we might get those results for you?
  2. 2. Copyright ©RAIN Group 2 #3: New Idea Approach [Name] Saul, my name is Aaron Doral. [Organization] I’m with Basestar Innovation. [Introduction—direct] We’ve never spoken before, [What we do] But we focus on working with consumer packaged goods companies to help them innovate . . . [Aspiration or affliction the prospect has stated (Capture attention)] I’m calling because I was just on your website and saw a note in a press release that you were looking for any and all ideas on how you can leverage open innovation . . . [Offer (Generate interest)] Open innovation is what we do, and, given your strategy to lead in dental products, we have three ideas that we think you might find intriguing . . . [PAUSE]. Perhaps these three ideas could spark some interesting conversation. [Call to action] Are you available to discuss these ideas next Tuesday morning or Wednesday morning? #4: New and Different Method Approach [Name] Karl, I’m Laura Roslin. [Organization] I’m with Picon Strategies. [Introduction—referral] Your COO Jim Smith suggested that I give you a call. [What we do] We work with technology companies to help them get their salespeople up to speed as experts in their fields and selling full tilt very quickly after they are hired. [Aspiration or affliction, couched in results achieved (Capture attention)] I’m calling because we’ve been working with companies such as Centurion and Viper Systems to help them reduce their ramp-up times for new sales reps by 50%, while at the same time decreasing new rep turnover by 15% in a breakthrough new way . . . [PAUSE] [Offer (Generate interest)] How we’ve solved the problem is pretty different than, I’m guessing, anything you’ve seen. But we won’t know that until we share it with you. [Call to action] Right now I am looking to discuss our approach next Tuesday morning or Wednesday morning—which works best for you?
  3. 3. Copyright ©RAIN Group 3 #5: First Step Approach [Name] Kara, this is Felix Gaeta. [Organization] I’m with C-Bucks Financial.

[Aspiration or affliction, couched in easy to accept offer (Capture attention)] I’m calling because we are having a private, CEO-only dinner and speaker event at the Copley Plaza in downtown Boston where CEOs will have a chance to talk with each other and enjoy our speaker, the dean of Triton University Business School . . . [PAUSE] [Offer (Generate interest)] As we’ve never met, I’d look forward to doing so by having you come to the event as my guest. [Call to action] Can I put you down as a yes for the event? #6: Can You Help Me Approach [Name] Callie, this is Tory Foster. [Organization] I’m with Colonial One. [Introduction] We’ve never spoken before, [What we do] But we focus on helping HR leaders hire the best candidates for leadership positions using our proprietary assessment instruments. [Aspiration or affliction, couched in results achieved (Capture attention)] We have been able to increase new hire retention and success rates at companies in the banking industry by 25%. [PAUSE.] [Offer (Generate interest)] I’m calling to see if you might be interested in having a discussion about how we achieve these results, but I don’t know who at your company would be the right person to talk to. [Call to action] Can you point me in the right direction? [PAUSE]
