LinkedIn algorithms are hijacked.
The phone isn’t working like it used to.
Cold emails aren’t breaking through.
Well, there’s good and bad news.
Bad news first.
Prospecting is harder right now.
LinkedIn engagement is down.
Pick up rates are lower in many industries.
And cold emails are getting buried under hundreds of (dare I say, “more important”) emails in our prospect’s inboxes.
But here’s the good news.
Reps are sliding into their prospect’s DMs with videos to land meetings.
Reps are making “Smart Calls” (Art Sobczak) instead of cold calls to land meetings.
Reps are still using proven cold email formulas to land meetings.
