I realize that this topic has come up before but I need a new perspective. I am making a lot of residential cold calls. However, I have a hard time actually getting someone to answer the phone. My original attitude is that I just have to actually talk to someone. Now I am wondering if leaving a message at least allows me to accomplish something? The reality is that no one ever calls back. What do you think - still leave messages or just put forget messages and put my head down and speak to people no matter how long it takes?
