    Hey Guys,

    Curious to know how everyone picks themselves back up after a nasty phone call. I know Will’s advice is to pick up the phone straight away, but that’s easier said than done…

    Also, keen to know how others are structuring their cadences, are you e-mailing first and then calling or vice versa? I’m wondering whether e-mail first is a bit of a ‘warm up’ although not everyone will open the e-mail right…

    Has anyone got any data on what tends to work best?

    Was there a reason for the nasty call?

    As in, was it your fault (personal accountability) or just totally random and out of your control (the person is a dick).

    Just one of those that you get every now and then Jimmy “I don’t know you!” – To be fair I did call her on her mobile without any prior notice. Comes with the job eh!

    It can be tough. But ultimately, it’s not personal.

    Did you set up the call with an email cadence?

    No Will, this was a sequence that started with a call first. So completely cold…

    Yea… I usually start the cadence with an email touch as well as a linkedin add before I call. By the time I give them a call, the call is usually warmer because they most likely have seen me and know who I am.

    If someone is nasty to you, just have empathy for them. I’ve never met someone who’s happy and having a great life being nasty to others. People who act like that are usually miserable which just makes me feel bad for them and simply wish them the best.

    Thank you for that point of view.. it helps.

    Sucks you have to go through that mate – Agreed with what the other’s said. Never take it personally, people are just having shitty days/ weeks/ years and taking out on the closest person. My advice is believing in the “selling by the number’s” strategy. Just make the calls you need to make to book the demo’s and call it a day. The next call you make after the shittest call could be the biggest deal ever :). Stay strong buddy!

    I don’t know if it’s the universe or something that I manifest on my own but I always find that I have an amazing call shortly after I speak to someone rude.
