Publication Date: December 3, 2012
You are hours away from getting past gatekeepers, overcoming objections and making more sales!
What do the world’s most persuasive cold callers do that is different? Would you like to know?
The answer is that they do not cold call. They spend a little bit of time doing something else before they make the call to the decision maker….and it transforms a call from a cold one into a GREAT one.
Simple but powerful calling techniques revealed
Mark Boardman's research into how the best sales performers do their jobs has uncovered some surprising NEW and ground-breaking cold calling techniques.
The GOOD NEWS is that the techniques are not complex or difficult to apply. You will see that they are just common sense ways of selling. The strange thing is, you will almost certainly NOT have heard or read about them before.
For example, persuasive cold callers spend about 5 minutes before a call getting some information that completely changes the way the call is structured. They use the information to get straight to the decision maker and then use powerful cold calling scripts that get results.
THE COLD CALLING SECRET reveals ALL the new cold calling techniques and cold calling scripts…and much more.
Here are a few of the sales techniques revealed in the book:

About the author
I have been selling for a living my whole life, but it was only when I ran my own business and became a 'buyer' that I became aware of the sales techniques contained in this book. Since then I have helped many telesales people, field (outside) salespeople, sales managers and business owners rid themselves of the toils of cold calling. I really hope I can do the same for you with this book, and you can start to enjoy selling again.
listener and more often than not it stops objections occurring. Let’s say for example that from my internet research I have found the name Sarah Jones, who I know is an employee, but I don’t know exactly how she fits into the organization. I just know that she is fairly senior in the company. On the first Fact Finding call I can say: “Hi my name is Mark Boardman from AB Systems, we provide XYZ products.

So you use the software to ‘program in’ the newsletter campaigns, and then sit back and watch the system do all the work for you. For example if you built 12 separate email newsletters and you wanted to send your prospects email newsletters every 2 weeks then you would program the auto responder system to send your first email newsletter to your email list. It would then
