    How much of you think that cold calling still works?

    Guys, is cold calling still works as a potential offline marketing source? I am asking this cause I have received some calls from my cellphone service provider and do you know what they tell after calling? They just run a recorded script which was totally annoying to me. Since then I don't receive those calls. If the cold caller calls with such a crap script then will they able to get any lead? I don't think so.............

    So how much of you think that cold calling still works?

    Hello Alan, Cold calling is a rapid and affordable way to attempt to get leads and to produce some sales for your products. I think It's a great way of marketing for getting know the consumers about your services and products. According to the Previous threa of mine:http://offlinemarketingforum.com/col...d-anymore.html bestbook123, Aaron Doud and Jason Kanigan discussed about Cold Calling. I am sharing some part of their reply here-

    In my view, cold calling still works, with a conversion rate of 6.3%, and that's why everybody's still doing it.

    We at our organization (top architects in Dubai) do not prefer cold calling. This used to work about 4-5 yrs ago. But in 2020, this is considered as spam calling. There are apps like TrueCaller which automatically detects and blocks spam calls. So, we prefer social media marketing like paid ads on Fb and Instagram.

    I completely agree with you. Rather I focus on organic traffic on my website (German auto spare parts in Dubai). For that I get SEO for the website. And that works very well for me.
