“Be brief and be gone” is a guiding principle when calling prospects. We say who we are and what we are offering, as concisely as possible. We know that we are an interruption to their day, so we get out as quickly as we can, unless they tell us they want what we are selling.
And then we call again in a month or so, and do the same with a different offer, and so on.
People buy in their own time, and for their own reasons. The purpose of each prospecting call we make is to find out if the time is now for that prospect, or not.
