If you don't see the name of your favorite Lead Gen Experts, drop us a comment...
I know my colleagues in the sales consulting industry are going to fill this page with comments telling me why their Lead Gen Tip of the day would be to craft the perfect voicemail script. My response is -- Don't Bother.As a result of the recent question on Focus.com regarding "should we leave a voicemail?" we decided to conduct a LinkedIn poll asking only C/VP level respondents (our appointment setting targets) what they do when they receive a well crafted voicemail that is sales oriented:
The results were as I expected, so let the debate begin:
Want to know the mix by department? It's interesting that the geeks listen more than others:
What do you think? Leave one or Don't?
This past week on Focus.com, there was an active discussion regarding if we Should or Should Not leave a voicemail when tele prospecting. The opinions are varied, but for those of us in the business, I thought we should put some stats behind the argument. Hence, time for a LinkedIn Poll. I've setup a non-targeted poll, below, and I've also paid for a random C/VP targeted poll. The results will be interesting. Clicking on the graphic below will bring you to LinkedIn to vote.Take the Poll, then spread the word by Copying and Pasting the following on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn Update, Your Blog: RT @damphoux Contribute to VOICEMAIL Debate. Take the poll (please RT). Results Thu. http://ow.ly/sC19 #sales #b2b #marketing
