Calling Old Contacts and Leads

Calling old contacts and leads may seem futile, but it’s really a good use of your time if done correctly. It’s likely that some time has passed since you last spoke to your college roommates or your Great Aunt Sue. That doesn’t mean that they aren’t quality prospects. However, when you finally reach out to older contacts they will surely be thinking, “why are you calling me?” You can be graceful in your response but you should also be direct. The less time is wasted for both you and your prospect the better the result of the conversation.

Ray’s advice for old leads: call them up, but don’t waste time doing it. He likes to get in quick and dirty with, “I know you were once interested in making money from home. Are you still interested in learning how to make money in a home-based business?” The key there is to disqualify them as quickly as possible so you can move onto the next lead. The reality is when you’re calling old contacts and leads the possibility of you closing them is lower than a new lead. Don’t get tied to the outcome, but the opportunity is definitely worth a few minutes on the phone!
