How To Get Direct Access To A Decision Maker

Posted August 22, 2019

What do you do when you keep getting stopped by “gatekeepers”?

There are some who like tell you to “just keep dialing” which in and of itself is an antiquated philosophy since the last time I “dialed a phone” Jimmy Carter was President.

Others will tell you to learn how to work with the “gatekeeper” and/or learn how to overcome their objections.

I like that type of thinking but we’re missing something that we’re practically tripping over;

Why put yourself in a situation where you’re dealing with a “gatekeeper” in the first place?

That’s why you should seriously consider adding LinkedIn to your year end push! And you do realize that push begins NOW, right?


Because there aren’t ANY “gatekeepers” on LinkedIn!

You can develop a relationship with high level decision makers and get an audience with them, WITHOUT going through a “gatekeeper”.

Why Do So Many Reps Choose The More Difficult Route?

For some, its their comfort level getting in the way.

They’ve always made cold calls and they get really protective when a guy like me comes along and suggests something additional.

Notice how I said “additional” and not “replacement”?

Many of them regard my suggestions as a threat to their precious cold call instead of seeing it as;

A Much Needed COMPLEMENT To The Cold Call!

The cold call ISN’T dead; It’s just lonely and in need of companionship from additional forms of outreach.

In fact, I maintain that a good LinkedIn communication plan will warm the hell out of your cold calls and even;

Have more people approaching YOU for a change!


Given the choice between dealing with a “gatekeeper” and bypassing them via LinkedIn and Permission, I WOULDN’T choose, I would do both but;

I think you’ll find getting DIRECT access to people WITHOUT a “gatekeeper” to be much more productive.

“Sounds Good But I Have No Clue How To Do That”
