Make Warm Contacts, Warm Calls

makewarmcalls

Today I share a very basic but often overlooked method of building solid long term contacts. I’ve always hated cold calling. Selling at its worst, I felt. Most people are the same. [bctt tweet=”Never cold call again to steal a title from a sales book. Make warm calls.” username=”bobremp”]

My personal approach to it is simply look for current opportunities to contact specific individuals generally in your target markets where you can congratulate them on a recent positive announcement, promotion, even offer a referral. Make the connection by having something substantive to say, to offer.

Never ask for a purchase decision, even through referencing an event or a product you are working on it quite acceptable as long as it is part of the conversation. You’ll see opportunities in traditional media, in your social media and comments from friends and others. Phone or an email with appropriate non sales subject line work best. Reference other individuals you both know if appropriate.

Here is Chris “Kubby” Kubbernus’s article, “How To Make Warm Calls” and what he does. Follow Chris on Twitter @ChrisKubby

“Here is a very simple trick to make it rain.

Okay maybe it won’t rain cash-money upon you. I’m not magical, although someone did call me a wizard the other day. But this simple trick has helped me pick up new projects and keep revenue coming in.

You’ve heard of the cold call right? Well the warm call is just like that but…err warm. Let me explain. The warm call is about calling a prospect that you already have real contact with, at the right time. Here’s how I do it.

1.
I pay attention on social media. Is that prospect interacting with me or my company? Liking my posts, commenting? What are THEY posting on social. Can I comment?

2.
I make a call to them, a physical phone call – remember those? Phone calls might seem old school but they give you way more context and opportunity than email.

 

I typically get people on the phone right after lunch or early morning. Once on the call I make a light pitch, or I comment on something they’ve done. I deliver a clear, thoughtful and non-pushy message which basically says “If you need help in (insert your service), we can help and were doing it all ready for Company X, Y, and Z.

See no real magic here, just thoughtful and good communication. If you do this you’ll find people to be very receptive and you might sell something. Typically I end up a lot wiser than I was before the call because people will give you information such as new hires, perhaps they are changing roles soon, or when they are doing their budgeting etc… Make note of this information, the more informed you are the better position you’ll be in to create success.”

We Believe The Future of Business Is Social Enterprises

RedAdairOne of my business heroes is a firefighter.  A very specialized fire fighter.   Red Adair was his name.  He capped and halted oil well fires around.   Oil well fires are very costly.  It’s a finite resource.  Oil is valuable and has a price per barrel.   Adair often still had a lot of questions and concern about his fees. His famous quote sticks in my mind:

“If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional to do this job, wait until you hire an amateur”

Einstein is often quoted (I suspect perhaps only literally and not reflecting his nuanced meaning and understanding of what it is) as “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”.  

One of the most difficult types of business to build is a social enterprises because it has a dual purpose and leaders and manager have to have at least two minds active at all times.  The team is rarely strong enough, even exhausted and the ideas are often weak and resources minimal.

This is our call to action to Social Enterprises everywhere to build a stronger team, reinforce and strengthen your mission and purpose, and your commitment.  This is our call to action to friends and supporters of social enterprises to encourage them to take the steps they need to succeed.

It is always about keeping in sight the mission and purpose of the enterprise, even when revenues must be paramount to allow the organization to continue.  Without achievement on the mission front, any success on the business side is just hollow.  We truly want social enterprises to succeed.

Mindset Important:

My experience leading a social enterprise and my observation of many others tells me starts with believing in yourself as an organization, believing in your mission, believing in your people. In many cases, mindset is the most appropriate starting point for business renewal and revitalization.

Social Enterprises Viable Future Business Model:

Personally, and as a consulting organization, we’re very bullish about the future of social enterprises as a viable business model in our market economies.  Even as a glass half full model, we need more enlightened entrepreneurs, more entrepreneurs with a vision for the world we all live in together, and more governments and regulatory authority that reward and encourage businesses with both a social mission and purpose that work and play in the competitive environment.

RempelGroup.com Offers Social Enterprises Pro Bono Growth Program

At RempelGroup, we’re motivated to help grow social enterprises within our market economies where ever they are located. On Tuesday we announced that we had extended our offer to assist social enterprises with strategy, management, coaching, and marketing.  Selected social enterprises will receive assistance on a pro bono basis  and a full letter of engagement will govern how we work and how we will assist.

If you know a social enterprise, a business operating in a competitive environment with a social purpose, or a cause related project such as a music festival, sports or similar event, that can benefit from a greater degree of professionalism, strategy and tactics, please let them know about our program and share this post.

Are You Satisfied With Just Reaching The Goal Line-Your Target?

Today’s Business Leader Tip: From our Daily Email To Our Business Coaching Inner Circle.

Never Plan To Just Reach A Target or Goal And Be Satisfied. Motivate yourself, your team and your key advisors with targets that exceed the internal goals you’ve set. Aim Higher! Reach Further!

What are your key metrics? For each write down two numbers: your own and the ones you want to show publicly to others.

Look out into the distance and visualize the end zone goal line as your own numbers, and then see the end of the football field as the numbers you have publicly committed to.

I coached baseball and softball at all levels from youth to elite international players.

We taught the players to run through first base at full speed and then make a turn later if it was a hit. We had them imagine a base five yards ahead as they ran towards the real base. Track and field sprinters would know this method too in order to maintain their highest speed at the finish line tape.
