Local Businesses

Direct Approach (approaching them for savings)

Hi, is that ******** ?

<reply>

Hi, my names’s YOUR NAME, I run a business like yourself. The reason for the call is that at the moment, a lot of local businesses have been struggling with cashflow since the lockdown, and so we’re offering a free bill review for your business & home-setup to see if we can help reduce your spend, and if we can’t, we’ll be the first to let you know.

Is that something you’d be open to looking at?

<Yes/No>

No: OK, no problem, thanks for your time anyway – have a great day.

Yes: OK, great. It takes about 15-20 minutes over the phone to for one of my colleagues, Dez, or myself to see if we can help; at the moment this evening or tomorrow after 6pm is clear; which of those works better for you?

<tomorrow at 6pm>

OK, I’ll give you a call tomorrow at 6pm. If you can find an energy bill beforehand, that’ll make sure we give you a more realistic quote.

<they reply>

OK, great, speak with you tomorrow at 6pm. Oh, one last thing, if you need to change the time or day for whatever reason, if you could let me know beforehand, that would be very helpful.

Indirect Approach (Going for Referrals)

Hi, is that ******** ?

<reply>

Hi, my names’s YOUR NAME, I run a business like yourself. The reason for the call is that at the moment, a lot of local people your business serves have been struggling with cashflow since the lockdown, and so we’re offering them a free bill review for their home-setup to see if we can help reduce their spend, and if we can’t, we’ll be the first to let them know.

And if they become a customer as a result of you referring them to us, we’ll pay you £50 as a thank you.

Is that something you’d like to like me to send over some more details?

<Yes/No>

No: OK, no problem, thanks for your time anyway – have a great day.

Yes: OK, great. I’ll text over some details now & once you’ve had a look through, we can have a brief chat about how it works in practise. Is that OK?

<yes, sure>

OK, great it’ll take about 5 minutes to read through the info- how soon can you have a quick look?

<now/half an hour>

OK, I’ll give you a call back in ********
