Kiss Cold Calling and Phone Prospecting Goodbye And Use Social Media To Close More Sales

By: Sandi Krakowski

Have you noticed a shift in how people communicate?

No one wants to talk on the phone anymore!

Even when it's a friend or family member calling, talking on the phone all day is no longer desirable!

Most people do not want to answer the phone when someone they know calls. They'd rather talk to them online through social media, email or texting. So how can someone who is trying to build a business use the phone to do so? Or would a better question be, do you have to use the phone like we used to in years past to grow your company?

We can't do cold calling and phone prospecting like we used to be able to do it. As someone who has personally dialed more than 30,000 leads myself in my years of phone prospecting, it is my belief that we either have to step up- or step out, when it comes to using the phone to build our business. (Yes! I have phone logs and lead lists to prove I DID that many phone calls! Wild huh?)

If people don't want to answer the phone when a friend calls what makes anyone think they'd want to talk to a complete stranger?

Currently, A Real Change International has a client base of over 1.5 MILLION customers. News flash! We don't have phones ringing non-stop, we don't have a call center and we don't have employees falling like flies because they are worn out with whining customers. Most of our clients speak to my team of staff through either email or social media. Answers are fast and easy – everyone is happy. This is the new way to do business. Our customers tell us all the time they love it!

When you build a company, one of the biggest keys to success is staying relevant to where customers are currently. If customers don't want to talk on the phone, it's our responsibility as business owners to put up systems so that they can contact us in a way that they feel most comfortable. It's obvious that social media is where people want to communicate in the year 2014. 

Having someone active at all times through email and social media gives our clients a high level of security and trust when doing business with us. Here at ARC, we do have a phone line where someone can be reached during normal business hours. But most of our clients reach out to us through email and social media, as their preferred means of communication.

This same method can be in place if you are running a business that requires a lot of phone prospecting or calling. One of the best ways to get through to a gate keeper is to build a relationship with them online! By doing some initial connection with a client's assistant or secretary through Facebook, Twitter or email, you'll not only be welcomed when you call by phone, but you'll be invited! 

Social media and email are great ways to 'warm up' a lead or to even do your sifting. When I was prospecting years ago for a direct sales company, I would send out initial emails that asked all the right questions to get my clients to reply back to me. These are some of the same things we do today with every person who joins our email list and the results are amazing!

Rather than having hotel meetings, many people online are now hosting tele-classes, info summits that are run virtually and even Skype Chat video parties!  In the same way social media and email have made it much more easy to connect with people and start a genuine conversation quickly.

Disconnect your phone a few hours per day and start making relationships with prospective clients through social media. This is how I was able to make a solid 7-figure income in my copywriting business, too!

Social media and email are how most people prefer to communicate. Go to where your client is, speak their ideal language and closing more sales will be easier than ever!

Come join me on Twitter and let me know if you are already using social media to build your business! I'd love to hear how it's going for you! Connect with me here: http://www.twitter.com/sandikrakowski 

Whatever you do, remember this- People love to talk to those who care and make them feel special. Social media is one of the best places to make that happen!

You were created to be more!

You Were Designed And Created To BE MORE!

You were created to be more!

You Were Designed And Created To BE MORE!

So many people live in darkness every single day struggling and hoping for things to break free. I'd like to suggest to you today that you were CREATED and designed by God to be more than you've ever imagined was possible.

This state of being is not for yourself, your own ego or even your own fulfillment. It's designed that others might know the true love and amazing grace of God on the earth.

When we make ourselves smaller to accomodate the opinions of men, we lessen this power that God gave all of humanity to be powerful!

Let me break this to you gently. It's time for God's people to stop being so terrified of the devil. If we got a revelation of who God Himself designed for us to be, we'd begin to realize that the truth of the story is this- the devil is terrified of us!

We are created to rule and reign here on the earth and to show forth the glory of God in all that we do! We are not victims and we are NOT powerless. It's time we stop making ourselves smaller thinking somehow He increases by our decreasing.

When John the Baptist made the statement, "He must increase, but I must decrease." in John 3:30 he was not suggesting that it was now time for him to disappear, become smaller, make himself nothing…. as so many Christians have taught. He was actually announcing that he was going to die and now Jesus was going to lead the way. The next verse sums it all up. "He who comes from heaven is above all." He was decreasing. He was going to die. The King Of The Universe was increasing. God was about to do something that would change the history of the world forever. He was ANNOUNCING this! 

Over and over again the kindgom of darkness has sought to make the sons of God smaller. And why, why would this be?

Because he KNOWS we were created to be POWERFUL and free!

You do direct spiritual warfare when you step into your destiny, my friends! You give a FIERCE BLOW to hell when you press through, press in and choose to BE all that God made you to be!

Mother Teresa has taught us so much by how she lived. She didn't defend her values. She taught her followers to ignore their critics. She stayed focused on her task. To this day her message of love for the lowly rings loudly and infuriates hell.

YOU were created to be more.

Stop settling for less. Ignore the voices of your past. Press through until you can't press through any more. Believe God.

Because the increase of He who is within you will change the world. I challenge you to expand, to allow HIM to shine brightly through you and to do anything you can, doing everything within your power to use your gifts, talents and abilities. We need you!

With love,

Sandi Krakowski
