In my journey as a business leader and through my experiences shared in Forbes, I’ve learned that cold calling and reaching out to new business prospects is an art that requires both strategy and empathy. The challenge lies in breaking through the barrier of unfamiliarity to establish a meaningful connection. My approach involves thorough research about the prospect, understanding their needs, and crafting a message that resonates with them on a personal level.
In the world of sales and business development, where email and LinkedIn messages are prevalent, standing out requires more than just a well-crafted message.

From personalizing your approach to being patient and respectful of the prospect’s time, these strategies are about building trust and rapport. It’s not just about closing a deal; it’s about starting a relationship that could lead to long-term collaboration and success.
