There are five words that can lead a cold caller to dramatically increased closure rates which are revealed by Chris Beal, a guest on Inside Inside Sales. The host is Darryl Praill.
There are also two words that once spoken, can almost immediately create a mental block and unwillingness like no other: Cold Call!
Why is it that these words are anathema to so many in the sales profession? To some, it’s a trivial exercise that’s one of those steps they’d just rather avoid. To others, it’s a stripping away of their security blankets, exposing their self-doubt for all to see. Chris Beall, the Rockstar CEO from ConnectandSell.com doesn’t see it that way.
On this episode of INSIDE Inside Sales, Chris forensically disassembles cold calls and shows us how to take advantage of the interruptions they can create. He’ll also guide us into how we can use cold calls as an amazing tool for working with our prospects towards solving shared problems and eventually making that sale!
About Chris Beal
Chris has been participating in software start-ups as a founder or at a very early stage for most of the past 30 years. His focus has consistently been on creating and taking to market simple products that can be used successfully the first time they are touched, without taking a course or reading a manual. His belief is that the most powerful part of any software system is the human being that we inappropriately call a “user”, and that the value key in software is to let the computer do what it does well (go fast without getting bored) in order to free up human potential.

How’s your alignment? No, I don’t mean your car (or your hips), I’m talking about the operational side of things. Are your Sales and Marketing Operations aligned? These help make up the very foundation upon which your career is standing, and if they’re out of alignment, you’re putting a harness on how successful you can be.
In this episode of INSIDE Inside Sales, Darryl speaks with thought-leader and Tenbound CEO David Dulany, hot on the heels of his huge Sales Development Conference where this year’s theme was all about “Alignment”. Inspired by the Top 5 lessons learned at the show, Darryl and David discuss ways to keep your organization’s tent posts aligned, and also delve into the importance of personalizing your messaging, the weight that incentive plans have on behavior, and how we’re just tapping the surface when it comes to mining valuable data. They also look at the concept of Revenue Operations, and ways to reverse engineer your goals to increase your profits. All this and much more, only on this episode of INSIDE Inside Sales!
