As a sales person, increasing connect rates is always top of mind. Most often, sales reps pick random times to make calls, but what effect, if any, does calling during a certain day or certain hour have on your prospecting efforts?
Apparently a lot.
The team at Inside Sales conducted a survey to determine when the best times to call prospects are, and here are some of their key findings. You can find the full study here.
Wednesday's and Thursday's are the best days to make contact and to qualify leads.
4-6pm is the best time to call to contact a lead. 8-9am and 4-5pm are the best times to qualify a lead.
