7 Simple Cold Market Prospecting Strategies
TIP #1 Lets start with a very important mindset tip when cold market recruiting.
Don’t be a hunter, simply feed the birds.
Don’t think about your potential prospect as prey, but rather open your hand palm-side-up and see if they like whats there. Do not be aggressive at all. Here is a good question to ask yourself regularly in life: “Who am I being?”
Smile all the time!
Be nice, be happy, and be friendly. This exudes attractiveness, and it displays confidence.
TIP #3 Here is a very important tip for any prospecting and recruiting situation.
If you say with a big smile “Hows it going!?” and your prospect looks away, or gives a sheepish one-word response, it is OK to stop right there. Prospects are constantly giving us information. We just have to look for the green lights, and the red lights, then respond accordingly. This is no different to cold marketing prospecting for a relationship! 🙂
Cold Market Prospecting Scripts
Create a break in communication.
This creates a smooth transition from chit-chat, to engaging them in a piquing question. Something like “I gotta run” or “I’m in a hurry” or “I gotta jump on a call.”
This does 2 additional important things. First, the subconscious mind understands intuitively that “busy people are successful.” Second, it allows you to lean on the fact that “you’re in a hurry” if they ask “whats it about.” Remember, to smile while creating your break in communication!
Give a sincere compliment.
If you authentically like them and felt some rapport, tell them “you carry yourself very well, I like that.” or “you have a very positive attitude, I like that.” Do not dish out insincere compliments, because people can smell this and its anything but professional.
Use a small takeaway.
Don’t do this with bravado or ego. Nonchalantly, let the potential prospect know in a subtle way that its not a guarantee. Here is what you say “I can’t promise you anything…” This is huge ladies and gentleman.
If you’re taking notes on these cold market recruiting scripts (you should be) make sure to write this one down. These 2 words are magic in creating an open door, and a non-threatening environment, to increase the chances that you will receive an authentic answer to any question that comes after it.
