How to Make a Cold Call
In this Show
There are 80 million Millennials out there and no, not all are lazy and entitled. There are plenty who want true freedom, prefer entrepreneurship to the 9-to-5 grind and are hungry for mentors.
Grant Cardone believes in Millennials. This show is for those of you who have not yet condemned the hustle.
Jarrod reminds us that it’s best to learn from people who have lived through the struggle, but you can’t get much from someone that doesn’t grab your attention. How do you stay interesting? How do you set hooks to keep people coming to you or your product?
At Grant’s first job he knocked on doors in El Paso, Albuquerque, San Antonio and Fort Lauderdale. He had been using a phone to setup these appointments and realized flying in, renting a car and going door-to-door was less time effective than simply closing the prospects by phone.
Visiting a prospect costs up to 8X more than closing them over the phone.
