Teach me outbound
Cold calling deep-dive | The Phonejacker
Teach me outbound is advice from people still ‘in the trenches.’ Short episodes break down tactics you can use right away.
Callum Beecroft is a sales coach and, more recently, a recruiter for SDRs and BDRs in the SaaS space.

INSTEAD OF THIS:
“I'm just wondering, are you hiring salespeople?”

It’s a small change, but it makes a big difference in your delivery.
