How can you make a good impression and set a new appointment without cold calling?
How do you get straight to the decision maker without making a phone call?
If you are making call after call and reaching too many voice mail messages, and you are unable to get through to the decision maker, there is something you can do to get directly to her or him.
It takes more time than making cold calls, but you get better results – and no rejection.
It is what I did at the beginning of my sales career to motivate decision makers to call me. I took the time to do this because I was ambitious, motivated and wanted to prove that my method would actually work.
This is what I did
I composed and printed a convincing letter directed at the needs of law firms because my company at the time had a product that would solve their problems.
Then I took a list of 150 law firms (with decision-makers’ contact names) home with me one weekend, along with 150 envelopes and 150 stamps.
During the weekend at home I hand addressed all 150 envelopes with contact name, including the return address of my company, signed 150 letters, stuffed them into the envelopes, put a stamp on each one and mailed them. Yep. Snail mail.
A handwritten, personally-addressed letter usually goes (unopened) from the secretary directly to the decision maker. I know this because in a previous life I was a secretary.
A Wonderful thing happened next
A few days after I mailed the letters, calls came in for ME from top people in the law firms who received my letters. Nice!
They requested an appointment with me and I made my first big sale of six units. Woo Hoo!
