The Best Time of Day to Call Network Marketing Leads
What is the best time of day to call leads for your network marketing business? There has been much discussion on when to call leads, because, obviously, you want to call when you will be able to reach the highest numbers of people.
Depending on your lead source, your batch of network marketing leads will have a lot of wrong numbers, disconnected numbers, people not answering their phones, people hanging up on you and also people who swear they never filled out any online forms looking for a home business.
Why Even Bother to Call Network Marketing Leads?
So with all of that, you may be thinking, then ‘why bother’ even trying to call network marketing leads? The quick answer is that out of every 100 leads you dial, there are about 5 who WILL be qualified for your business. You just have to be patient enough to work through the numbers to get to them.
With such high numbers of people who are not right for the business, you want to make sure you are calling at a time when most people are available, obviously. The OLD way of thinking is that it is best to call around dinner-time, from 5 pm – 8 pm in the time zone where the lead resides, because that is when most people are home and near a phone. These days, nearly everyone has a cell phone and it’s usually kept close to them at all hours of the day, so the dinner hour is no longer necessarily the best time to call.
The Best Hours to Call Network Marketing leads May Not Be What You Think
Overall, the best hours in the day to call are from 9 am – 9 pm in the time zone where your lead lives. The best time, is the time YOU set aside to work your business. If you work your business is from 10 am- 1 pm, then that will be the best time for you. It’s better to call your network marketing leads during the time that you want to work your business. After all, it is your business. If you try to cram it in during a time of day that is not convenient for you, then you are more likely not to call at all.
Oftentimes, network marketers will wait and wait to make their dials, trying to play around with different times of day, not making calls because they are waiting for the “perfect” time of day to call……when actually what they are really doing is just stalling! They stall because they don’t know what to say to those leads. Here’s an article I wrote on what to say to leads, so now there’s no excuse, 🙂
If your lead list does not have city and state provided, then you can look up the area code with an area code locator. There are a bunch of them out there, but the one I use most often is THIS ONE. By doing this, you will immediately have a talking point with your lead, because you will know roughly where they live.
The best time is the time you will stick to. Set aside a block of time when you are absolutely going to make your calls. Mark it in your calendar as an appointment so that you actually get it done. Then sit down and do it.
