Hey guys, Jp Here,

If this survey breaks any rules or whatever, just let me know. I'm working on some validations of my business model so if you guys just fill out this survey, The average time is around 2-4 mins so it shouldn't take long. Maybe in the future I'll share the results once things are in motion so I can be as transparent on how this business grew! Thanks!!

Here's the Survey!


Prospecting and Cold Calling


A here's a short preview of the inside thread that I started on this topic..


As a deaf person. One of my biggest struggles that I’ve done in the past year was cold calling and prospecting. Regardless of my Improvement I'm still at the mercy of the sign language interpreter and how she/he would translate my words. I also was at the mercy of the technology I was using ending up having delays in conversation. This would turn off the cold client especially if I interrupted their day.

This was a problem, so in the grand scheme of MJ’s teachings… I already had failed at the CENTS formula. I have a gap of control over my sales process. Then it dawned on me after a few people mentioning some solution ideas and how I can improve this process. I started with hiring a sign language interpreter to ‘sell’ for me and then I would train the said interpreter via videos on prospecting and sales concepts. So I'll start an accessible telemarketing company targeted for deaf entrepreneurs and business owners but still quality service that everyone wants to use it as well.

I can't stress enough how helpful this will be. The survey is a great resource, it'll really help define the value of the business. Fortunately, the telemarketing industry is a very broadly used resource that benefit many businesses. It's a fiercely competitive industry - but as you said, there are niche audiences that do not benefit from the typical teleconferencing model... I hope everyone will participate in this survey - here's hoping this is a success!

Thanks Greg, I'm def working on a blue ocean strategy for this whole thing and I'm trying to validate it via surveys across forums, facebook, reddit, and other sources of internet media.

Are you done with surveying? I tried clicking the link to complete it, but hopefully the fact that I can't access it means you got an overwhelming response :)

I just completed it, hopefully it was beneficial for you even though some of the questions I wasn’t able to truly answer since I haven’t gotten it off the floor yet.

Gave me a lot of good information to think about for my business though.

Good luck with your venture!

Do you suggest TypeForm over survey sites such as Survey Monkey by the way?
