The Day I Stopped Making Cold Calls

The Day I Stopped Making Cold Calls

The day I stopped making cold calls was the day that I met sales expert and author, Jeff Hoffman. Yes, I was calling people who were not within my immediate circle or inbound to my company. However, once I started taking Jeff’s advice, the quality of my business conversations skyrocketed and leads were far more receptive to me reaching out.

Why Stop Making Cold Calls?

As one MIT Sloanie put it, “The one hour session I saw with Jeff, was the most productive hour I have spent in business school thus far.”

Jeff’s fresh approach to sales flips the traditional paradigm of buyer/seller on its head. He is the creator of the Why You? Why You Now?™ sales program, where he uses a blend of customization, formula, and tactics to engage key prospects.

Jeff is not just a person, he is a verb. After implementing his strategies, I knew I wasn’t simply selling anymore. I was “Hoffman-ing” prospects, and everyone was benefiting from the results. And the great news is, you can too!
