I recently registered with an independent firm that does not allowing their financial advisers to cold call.  Most brokers in the firm are already established cpa's and tax professionals. I was wondering what are other alternative ways are there to get new prospects other than cold calling?

Not trying to be a jerk however I have to ask...why would you register with a firm that doesn't allow cold calling without an alternative plan already in place on how to grow your business.

Just wondering... I think compliance said it is a California State Law.

I haven't heard of a CA state law prohibiting cold calling. Are you thinking about the do not call list?

no such law exists against cold calling.  The DNC on the other hand... yea, that's no good.

Call businesses for an appointment instead?
