Post Any advice please with calling professionals?

Hi i'm scared to call professionals i'm not afraid of rejection by any means. but i just get scared when calling Realtor, insurance agents, etc But i know these people have connections. I'm following Todd Falcone script on recruiting professionals.

But every time i call them they seem pissed off when i ask if they want to make any extra income or if they keep their options open to making additional income. I understand they have probably been pitched this before but it sucks to a certain point of how rude they are to me.

Any help?

I know their attitude would be totally different if i wanted to buy a house or buy insurance from them.

Any suggestions on what else i could say?

I've even asked if they would be open to a side project one Realtor was furious that i called her to ask that.

Also anyone else had a similar experience?

I had exactly the same problem. The only way to overcome it was calling, calling and calling. After few days and lots of rejections (some polite, some not) I got used to it and now I don't care if they are rude to me or anything.

It's a business, I have a business offer for them and if they don't want to listen to me it's their problem. I have a lot of other phone numbers to call... That's what I'mt thinking when calling to these people.

Just don't give up

Cold calling is telemarketing. And from my experience, everybody pretty much hates telemarketing. They hate it so much, being rude has become a sport.

What are you trying to do? Recruit them into your network marketing opportunity?

If you are then this is not the way to go.

Advertise your business online and have people who are already interested in making extra money come to you.

Just create your own website and then learn how to market online.

It truly is a numbers game. Cold calling is not easy. Much success to you!
