Cold Call Openings That Grab Interest

If you have been reading my tips for a while, you will know the importance of having an interest grabbing opening on a cold call –  i.e; one sentence that will make the customer want to hear more from you. So it’s not:-

“This is Sally Smith from XYZ Computer Services.  I would like to tell you what our company does.” or “I’m Simon from XYZ IT. We do computer hardware and software and I wondered if you would like some information on this?”

It must be a sentence with a major benefit to the customer, i.e. the results the prospect might gain from using your services.  For example, this opening would have more interest:-

“This is Sally Smith from XYZ Computer Services.  We can offer you a service which guarantees your computers will never be out of action for more than 24 hours if they go wrong.” (The aim is to create curiosity.)
