Book More Trivia Shows  – Cold Calling – Visiting Businesses

The key way to cold call and by far the most effective in my experience is the visit. Forget phones, emails, texts or letters, get yourself out there and get visiting the businesses you want to employ you. Its more personal, gives you a better chance to present yourself and allows you to show off your materials . This is much better than a standard sales call or mass marketed letter. Get in there and get your best smile on and get that quiz sold!

Book More Trivia Shows  – Cold Calling – Visiting Businesses – Choosing a Time

You have to be clever about it though and ensure you go at a good time. Check the opening hours and don’t go just before closing or at peak times. Head in either on a free night when you intend to run the trivia, to highlight how empty it is and the difference you can make, or during a weekday when the manager may have the time to put aside to sit and chat to you and really go through things. Walk in at a busy time and they will see you as nothing but a nuisance! And people don’t hire nuisances!
