I've calculated I need 200 paying customers to go full-time on my saas. This morning I decided to pick up the phone and start dialing.
Holy iPhones was it taxing. Mentally and physically - heart pumping, adrenaline going - my silly reptile brain didn't seem to understand I'm just dialing a number.
Result: 4 to voicemail, 1 rejection
Next: I'll keep trying
For those of you that use cold calling as a prospecting tool, does this get easier?
