Fastest Way To Get Sales Appointments Right Now (Including Scripts)

Posted by Josh Turner in B2B Lead Generation & Sales Development

OK. Camp Corona week four and counting (or are we on week five?). Either way, with a remote workforce, clients reconsidering their budgets and the “threat” of opening up the economy again - who knows when that will happen - I think we could all use some quick wins. 

How about the quickest way I know of to get sales appointments?

Today I’m going to share with you the exact email scripts we use to take our clients’ current contacts and turn them into quality leads and appointments. This is just one of the strategies we use as part of our automated client attraction and sales system. Stay consistent with this and you’ll see results within a couple weeks or less.

If you’d like to learn more about how we automate this process and 14 days free access to the tool we use to do it, click here.

Note: the following scripts are by no means the only approaches you can take to nurture your leads into booking sales appointments, but they are some of our most successful campaigns. Also, note that these scripts typically get the best results with people who have at least some understanding of you or your business. (We’ll share our recommendations for cold contacts another time).

Quick Overview Of The Campaign

This campaign is perfect for: Anyone. Whether you have unique content or you are simply sharing curated content applicable to your prospects' interests, this is one of our most recommended short-term lead generation campaigns.

Intended outcome: Book appointments or meetings with either cold (or warmer prospects).

How to Build Trust in Your Messaging: Don’t lose sight of your prospect. What do you know about your prospects that unites them? How can you fit that into your messaging? Don’t forget that you need to provide value. Achieve that via your content choices in Messages 1 and

2 and include the reason they should want to speak with you in Messages 3 and 4.

Alright let’s dive into the scripts...

#3: Wait 7-10 Days and Send to Those Who Didn’t Reply

SUBJ: Can we connect soon?

Hi {firstname},

We've been crossing paths here the past few weeks and I wanted to reach out. 

Anyways, it got me thinking and I wanted to introduce myself as we’ve worked with a lot of [INSERT TARGET INDUSTRY i.e small business owners/software companies /construction firms/people like you] helping them [INSERT COMPELLING OUTCOME OR ACHIEVEMENT ie eliminate their HR costs by 35%/streamline oversee developer management/win new business by short circuiting the RFP process/implement custom daily routines to get more done.]

I’d love to line up a quick phone call to learn more about the work you’re doing/what you are currently dealing with and seeing if we might be able to help you like we have [INSERT SIMILAR COMPANY YOU’VE HELPED].

How does next week look for you?

I’m generally available Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Let me know what times work for you and the best contact number, and we’ll get something on the calendar.

#4: Wait 3 days and send as reply to those who didn't reply...

SUBJ: Re: Can we connect soon?

Hey {firstname},

Just following up on the message I sent a few days back. 

Do you have any openings this week or next for a quick 10-15 minute call?

I’m interested in hearing a bit more about what you do and just sharing a couple stories of the clients we’ve helped that are similar. 

No pressure at all either way. Just figured there was no harm in following up. 😉

Let me know and we’ll get something on the calendar.

Best, Josh

P.S. As I mentioned...I don’t want to be a pest so if you don't want to hear from me again, just hit reply and let me know.

NOTE - 'Send as reply' is ONLY an option in Sequential campaigns.

Why This Works: The Magic of Following Up

Two of the biggest mistakes businesses, entrepreneurs, and sales teams make is this: 

  1. They go straight for the sale

  2. They neglect to follow-up

It’s one thing to send out connection requests to targeted potential prospects on LinkedIn. It’s another to nurture that connection into a relationship so that business conversations can occur. You can’t just push for the sale if they don’t know who you are, what you do, how you can help them, and why they should trust you. Sharing expert content before you ask for an appointment addresses both of those mistakes.

Without follow-up, you simply can’t expect for them to email you asking for your services. That’s not how this works. Follow-up allows time for them to get to know you and time for you to prove yourself to them. Whether you use these scripts as part of a LinkedIn messaging campaign or via email (or like we do, both), you need to stay top of mind and connect, so that when your prospect is ready, they know who to turn to.

Try these scripts out and let me know how it works for you!
