Carpet Cleaning Phone Script
In today’s tutorial we are sharing a phone script to help carpet cleaning services make cold calls to local businesses. The key here is to understand we are not selling anything at this stage but merely introducing ourselves to set up an on site estimate.
Every sales/marketing campaign works to some degree, our mission is to fit the right campaign with the right prospect to get the best possible ROI and squeeze the most out of our $$$
This is a standard phone script for carpet cleaning services, tile cleaning and various specialty services to get you started. Generally speaking all we want to do calling on local businesses is ask if we can stop by and introduce ourselves or introduce our company.
