Who to turn to when cold calling services become too overwhelming?

Cold calling is exciting but at times it can become frightening. 

As a company that has been working as a provider for sales cold calling services, Magellan Solutions is aware of how it can get overwhelming for both the caller and the agent.

 

Formula For Successful Outbound Cold Calling Services

No matter what industry you’re in, we can tailor a cold calling guide script. As a result, we guarantee a steady increase in your success rate and boost your quotas.

This is why we’ve prepared tips and examples of our call flows

Take note that these scripts are particularly suited to account-based marketing efforts.

1. Research, Research, Research

Prospect research is essentially a cold caller’s pre-call ritual. Research aids in the tracking of key information, allowing you to make more valuable calls.

Without this initial step, the call appears selfish because of having zero investment or interest towards the possible customer.

 

2. Industry Targeting

This is another form of research. This time though, the prospect is no longer a person but a whole business or industry. 

Your products and services won’t work for companies in every industry. To skip this step means you won’t focus your calls towards those who have a big chance of benefiting the most from what you have to offer.

To identify a target, start with your customers (as stated in the first tip, research) and see if any patterns exist. 

 

3. Formulate A Script

After researching prospects and industries, you can then make a general script. 

Of course, we guarantee that even if the call is scripted, we still make our own tweaks to it to make it personal and special for each and every call. 

Below is sample call flow:

Call Flow

Description Script
Introduction

It’s best to start your call with a short and simple introduction of yourself. This also allows the prospect to know how to address you during your conversation.

Hi, [prospect name]. This is [agent] from [account].

Question

This is where the research comes in handy.

Your goal is to get them talking about themselves or the company before dropping the heavy product/service talk.

You may start asking with the details they share and establish rapport with them. This further gives them a reason to continue conversing.

But be mindful of their time. Do not drag this part out too much than necessary.

I see you’ve been at [company] for seven years.

What are some of the most exciting projects you’ve worked on in the past seven years?

Positioning statement

This is where pitching usually comes in. 

With the researched information and additional facts from your questioning, you can already craft a statement that explains how your products or services can help. 

Make sure this is about them too and not just your product.

After talking to other marketing professionals, I’ve learned that most get frustrated with having to use a number of tools to properly track campaigns. Is this also a problem you’ve had?

Follow-up

Take the time to learn what they need. Listen closely and form good follow-up questions. 

You should also think about all the reasons they may reject your product or service. This will help you shift your position as needed.

Lastly, end the call by setting up a follow-up call, email, or chat. Through the follow-up, you can further dig into their problems and your solutions.

So, if I’m understanding correctly, you wish your analytics tools to [points that prospect listed]. 

Are you available for a follow-up chat to discuss how [account product] can help you solve [problem prospect described]?

Why you should outsource cold calling services 

Outsourcing cold calling services helps in overcoming call reluctance because of the extensive training that sales agents go through. 

80% of studies show that salespeople fail due to sales call reluctance. But it is completely normal to be jittery before a call. After all, there are still doubts about whether the product/service is going to be turned down or not.

We suggest our agents the following whenever they feel nervous:

  • Be Positive: Regardless of the outcome, every call is a learning experience. They will surely learn from the negatives, thus letting them embrace what goes right.
  • Use essential oils: Essential oils can trick the mind into moving to a place of positive power.
  • Look at photos of loved ones: Seeing someone they love makes them feel happier. The photo and the memory it holds also relieve pain. As a result, our agents are less susceptible to anxiety.
