Cold Calling is one of the most traditional ways to reach out to the prospective customer and directly find out whether he is the right fit for your product/service.

There are several gigabytes of content available on the internet. It is overwhelming for a newbie to get started.  At the time of publishing this blog, the internet had at least 1000 uniques pieces of information to master the art of cold-calling. However, we have shortlisted ideas that have inspired us the most, that have stood out from the crowd and set a higher benchmark in our processes.They are the pieces of content that we share internally in our team. We would love to hear your feedback.PS: None of the content is sponsored.

Snippet:

Grant Cardone's youtube content is the best place to get started. Reddit folks give unique insights on specific questions you have. IMHO, Quora content is worth skipping because most of the content is mediocre at best.

Best YouTube Video:

While there are too many videos giving tips about the psychology, the suitable script, the perfect 10-15 seconds to break into the call, what amazed us about Grant Cardone's video is his professionalism in handling the call.Professionalism is one of the most underrated aspects of cold-calling, and his videos are the epitome of this virtue. His sentences ooze an admirable level of confidence, empathy and customer success which every salesperson must try to achieve.
