If you’re thinking about making some cold calls, considering sending an email ahead of the call first. A recent study showed that response rates can double when an email precedes a phone call.
Additionally, connect rates with leads who received an email beforehand showed that the leads were much likelier to be reached by phone. Conversion rates were much higher as well with the group who received an email before a phone call.
As pointed out in the study, email opens up the door for a conversation, provides a great reference point after the call is complete and is a great follow-up tool for voice mail messages.
