How LinkedIn Killed the Cold Call

In 2007 it took an average of 3.68 cold call attempts to reach a prospect. Today it takes 8 attempts. In today’s culture the cold call typically isn’t answered, let alone welcome, and organizations have a network of gatekeepers to protect decision makers from intrusions. LinkedIn has changed the B2B sales game with its unprecedented access to information on decision makers and the ability to ditch the cold call in favour of a warm introduction.
