Contact a minimum of 25 people
“Hi [NAME], it’s [YOUR NAME] have you got 2 minutes?”
I’m going through a process in getting promoted with this discount club.
The reason for calling you is that they’ve tasked me with contacting a minimum of 25 people who I trust & respect just to ask them two questions.
Have you got time for me to ask you the 2 questions now?
<sure – go ahead etc>
You might already know this about the company, they’re a FTSE 250. 20 years old, with lots of awards. and they don’t advertise at all.
Interestingly, they turned over £790 million last year, and that’s with just 2% of the market place.
Now, in this area, it’s only around 1%, so they need lots more people here. That’s where they’ve asked me to help.
The promotion I’m working towards, involves introducing new partners, and showing them how they could be earning an extra £500-£800 each month on top of their existing income.
In your opinion, do you think that’s something I could do?
And the last question is, once I’ve done my team building training, would it be ok if I came over and showed you?
I’ll need the practice, and you might know some people it will help.
<their reply – hopefully along the lines of “sure, when suits you”>
“OK, great – once I’ve done the training, I’ll give you a call & we can sort out a time when I can pop round?“
<then normal chit-chat & end call as normal>
If they ask for more details:
“Well, to be fair, NAME, I haven’t started yet – it’s easier to show you in person, and I haven’t done my training yet…”
