I’m often asked “Is there a good time to call prospects?” The quick answer is that any time is a good time as opposed to not making a call at all. As obvious and somewhat sarcastic as that sounds, the biggest challenge most of us have is not making enough calls and I always recommend that the first focus should be on picking up the phone more often. After that, there definitely are times of the day when the chances of connecting to a prospect is higher than others.
Using these guidelines, you can increase your contact rates but I strongly caution you to keep one thing in mind: A call made on a Monday after lunch is still better than the call that you intend to make on Thursday morning but don’t get around to!
