Gatekeepers will put cold calls through if the salesman doesn't sound like one.
We had a few of you say recently that you’re struggling to get through to anyone because the gatekeeper isn’t able to transfer you through to the decision-maker.
Makes sense, the majority still spend a lot of time working from home or out of the office and are hard to get in contact with - if you don't have a direct mobile number for them, all you've got is the office number.
Anyone who’s ever made a sales call knows that when you leave your number, you’re probably not getting a call back, unless you’re a really good salesperson.
That’s because the gatekeeper has two functions:
👉 1. Never put through the wrong call.
👉 2. Always put through the right call.
