    Cold calling

    Good morning guys, I hope that your day is going well. Iím new in this forum and I have a question. I have a big problem passing gatekeepers... Iím kinda new in cold calling with business loans but I worked 2 years with a lender so I have some knowledge and experience, just having really difficult time to pass those gatekeepers. Does anyone have a good method that could work for me? By the way I know itís a suckish time to join this industry but now itís a good time to learn. Thanks in advance to whoever can help

    IMO cold calling is dead. merchants today have an extremely negative visceral reaction to having products jammed down their throat

    Did not pay for the data. Created the data myself by doing targeted searches and then drilled down to the owner.

    i think cold calling now, during this issue is not a going to work for you. People might need money, but unless they are a health care facility, grocery store or food delivery service, you are not going to get anyone to fund. IMHO

    IMHO... There are a host of companies that were already in trouble with their lenders before this happened. They will certainly be shown the door in a hurry. I have some close friends that work for corporate turnaround firms and they are getting very busy.

    Hi Jason,

    Great Answer.

    You can also easily get access to open source data (where we get all of our leads we sell from) and broker it out with this easy API that anyone can use

    Not sure what you are referring to. How is a Business Owners Mobile Line Open Source? Your link goes to some man dancing.

    Agreed. I prefer cold calling versus company generated leads. Think about it like food/hunting. Do you want to crumbs and scraps or the full meal? That's how I look at it.

    I agree , cold calling works best. especially when you scrub your lead source before calling. But I'd thought that nowadays, you are not allowed to cold call due to state mandate of cannot make unsolicited calls during a local state of emergency. In New York, Gov Cuomo said that at the begining of this lockdown. Had that mandate been reversed ? Maybe this thread began prior to coroan virus and lockdowns ...

    Lol. I know individuals making 2-3 million dollars a year but doing nothing other than cold calling. It's sick.
