That’s right, I said it.

Just because you see some stats around particular words and phrases working well for cold calls, doesn’t mean they’ll work for you.

There’s a ton of nuance to take into consideration.

Who did they gather the data from?

What industries do they sell into?

Are they selling transactional? Mid-market? Enterprise?

Are they selling a product/service with a great reputation in the industry? Or a brand new startup?

What personas are they selling into? Marketing? Sales? Those are very different personas from more technical roles.

And the list goes on.

Conversational intelligence is great. But it’s not magic.
