Here are three of them:

✅ Permission-based cold call openers:

“Hey ______, this is Jason with Blissful Prospecting. I know I probably caught you right in the middle of something. But if you have a few seconds, can I tell why I’m calling and you can let me know if you want to keep chatting?”

✅ Soft vs. hard CTAs in cold emails:

“Can I get 15 minutes of your time?”
“Are you free to meet tomorrow?”
“Does 2pm work for you this Friday?”


“Interested in chatting further?”
“Make sense to connect?”
“When does it make sense to connect?”

✅ Creative subject lines

Hi [first name], your [area you help]

Hey [first name], just left a voicemail

Hey [first name], just left a voicemail
