Nice job on calling 40 people and choosing a niche.

But just 3 picked up? You getting these leads from ICQ by any chance?

What's ICQ?

I anticipate a lower pickup rate as I'm calling Financial Advisors who own their own practices, can't afford something like Seamless or zoom for direct numbers

Google it if you're curious. It was a big deal before Skype came along.

Even though I don't know anything about your niche, it still seems like a really, really low pickup rate. Where are you getting your leads from?

Do you have a website?
I'm thinking of doing something similar. Selling web design services + funnels/fb ads.

I'm struggling picking up a niche, though.

Have you done some research before picking that niche? Are there other people who are selling to financial advisors?

i was in b2b sales and 10% pickup rate is infinitely better than what i got there - i would hit phone all day and sometimes get only 5 pickups - i just get my leads from sales nav and find phone no's on google
