TIPS: Lunchtime is Voice Mail Time

So here's something I've learned after a few all-day cold calling blitzes.

For better or worse, you are very likely to get the marketing person's voice mail between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

So if you are feeling especially chatty and social, take a break and use that time to work on something else.

However, if you are strung out and grumpy (like I was feeling today), it's the perfect time to cold call. You can leave voice mail after voice mail message and never have to talk to a real person.

Anyone else have any good recommendations on the timing of cold calls? I've heard early morning and late afternoon are good, but I've yet to try it.

  1. Sometimes the end of the day is a good time to cold call, because people think their partners or families are calling.
