This week I coached a highly paid consultant, who has a unique, valuable set of skills. He wanted to be trained on how to make more appointments with senior people at blue-chip companies. I listened intently as he shared stories of not getting through and not getting enough time once he did get through and how his appointment conversion rates were much lower than he expected. given his skill set and ability to add value.
He felt he wasn’t able to hold the attention of the prospect and sensed them losing interest. He admitted, “At times, I can tell they just want to get off the phone as soon as possible’.
He averages 2 appointment per week and spends on average 8 hours per week on the phone making calls after warming his prospects up with a direct message on LinkedIn
