Swamped

If you're a regular reader, you've probably noticed the little meter to the right has been hanging tough at 461 calls for a couple of months. So where has cold call writer been?

Well, not to bore you with the details, but basically swamped with work. Since I started my cold call campaign in April (when I literally had no work and was chewing my fingernails down to the quick), I've been working with six new clients and am in negotiations with two more. One of those looks like it will turn into a year-long contract, and another is talking about forming a long-term relationship.

Things have just started to slow down a bit (phew), so hopefully I'll be resuming this blog in the next week of so. But for today, I'm going to go hiking and see if I can enjoy what's left of the summer.

  1. 461 calls is magnificent and I think it's amazing that you did it all in such a short space of time.

    Do you count calls as dials and via attempts or do you count the calls you made as conversations to the decision maker?

    I did a cold call yesterday and it is always always terrible at first but then it is fine once you get through.

    Great blog
