Why Most Sales Reps Only Use Phone and Email To Prospect

Posted January 7, 2019

Why do most sales reps only use phone and email when they prospect?

Some would say it’s because those platforms work but I’m here to tell you that you can easily say that about other things like LinkedIn, traditional networking, snail mail, referrals and warm intros, drop ins, etc.

Most sales reps will only use phone and email because that’s what THEY’RE comfortable with.

And when I say “comfortable” with the phone and email, I really mean;

That’s all most sales reps know how to use

Not trying to be a dick here but most reps Don’t know how to use LinkedIn so they avoid it.

Most reps don’t know how to use creative prospecting tactics so they avoid them.

Most reps don’t know how to ask for a referral without having things “get weird”, so they avoid it.

Meanwhile there’s a whole world that their potential clients are comfortable with but;

Sales reps miss them altogether because they won’t try additional platforms.

One week from today, I’m launching our Rock Star Academy program where there’s 150 tactics, 30 templates, 13 PDF’s, and 3 eBooks designed to help you hunt more effectively (and close more effectively too).
