So finally, you have a LinkedIn prospect willing to talk on the phone, what now? What do you say? That depends on your purpose. Do you want to arrange a face-to-face meeting or do you want to do it all on the phone, like I do?
You could say something like this:
“Hi Joe, glad you agree to have a meeting. I have some time this Thursday at 11 AM and 2 PM, or Friday at noon, Pacific time. Let me if any of these work for you. If not send me some times that do work. Sincerely, Mike”
“Hi Mike, none of those times work. I have time next week on Tuesday, 8 AM Eastern time. Will that work?”
“Hi Joe, sorry, can’t do it then, how about … etc..” and etc. and etc. What a drag.
