Cold calling is a great sales skill that should be used rarely. It’s always easier to close a warm call than a cold call. Social sites like LinkedIn allow you to get help from your connections and be introduced and referred to potential prospects. It’s much more productive to call a hot prospect that has shown real interest in your company, than a stranger that doesn’t have a current need. Sales-driven marketing techniques, that use marketing technology to automatically convert leads into hot prospects, allow sales people to do more of what they were hired to do: sell and close deals.

Madonna Robinson a.k.a "call reluctance queen" has some good arguments for cold calling, but I must say that I am convinced not to try that route of calling people without some kind of established relationship. I am a trained networker in referral marketing and cold calling is not an option! ;)

Maybe I have to download her ebook, Cold Calling without Fear... ;)
