How would you respond to “Send me an email” while making a cold call?

They would never ask me to send an email because when I call I say “hey Dave, I wanted to ask if I could send you a video I recorded covering a/b/c?” When they say yes (as they always do) then I say “cool, I’ll send it over shortly, but if you see even 1% value, could you connect me to your x/y/z team?” They say yes and I say “great, so I’ll send it over and I’ll call you again next week to unpack it all”

Works like a charm

SE1, I love your approach with videos. Do you mind sharing an example as well if I DM you? I would really appreciate it :)

That right there is an objection. It’s a way for them to get you out of the way.

You can send an email saying something like:

“Thank you so much for your time early in the phone, following up with you request on sending you an email, I want to make sure you receive relevant content that makes sense for you. Is there anything in particular you are more interested about?”

Have a great rest of your day.


Something like this. And then any answer use it as a pain point

Reply with: “Of course, I’m happy to do that? To make sure I get relative information to you, do you mind if I ask a few questions?” During this time, keep your voice casual.

Then have 2-3 solid but brief questions to give you more insight & hook them. This will give a better shot of them reading your email & it opens up the conversation,

“What do I need to put in that email line to get your attention?”
Pivot
“What’s one problem you’re having right now with XYZ”
“How are you solving XYZ”

The second question you’ll have to tailor to yourself

Usually I try to live in the moment, but other times things come to mind from the past that make my life feel like it could be a soap opera. For example, I crushed on a guy from school for a few years, and one night as a young adult, found us both drunk alone in my apartment. A few months later he texted me and said he just got married at the courthouse and that I should be in the wedding party when covid was over. It shouldve happened by now but it hasnt yet…👀🙂

Hello everyone! I’ve had about 5 years of BD experience in increasingly senior roles and have done a few side projects to enhance BD operations on a consultative basis. I’m looking for a BD leadership role as a team lead or a manager but am having a hard time finding these roles. Most “BD manager” listed jobs are just BDR roles. Can anyone give me recommendations for key words to search and the best websites to find these positions? Thanks so much!

Is it possible for someone without a degree or tech experience to get a fully remote entry level SDR or BDR role? If so, how? My sister’s boyfriend was fairly successful at a call center a few years ago but has only worked low wage jobs since. Any steady job would be a step up. My current employer wants 2+ YOE in a “professional environment” for the BDR role, which would likely be a barrier even with a referral.
