Calling Friends to Get Parents’ Numbers

If you don’t have their phone number, DIRECT message them on Snapchat:


“Hey _____! Hope all is well. (Okay to add personalization here.) If I could have your number, that
would be awesome. I have a really quick question but it’s too long to type.”


Hey _______, I need you to do me a favor. I’m literally calling everybody I know.
I started this new job working with Vector showing Cutco, and I’m in this huge contest to earn a scholarship.


All I have to do is this really quick presentation for people and get their opinion on something.


It’s pretty easy to do, but I have to see people that are over 30 and married. I was thinking your parents fit that description. I have to actually call them and ask them personally about it. Even if they’re too busy to do it, that’s fine. It helps me just to call them and ask them about it.


So who’s easier to talk to, your mom or your dad?

 

Cool, let me get her/his number real quick. It would really help me out.

 

Thanks a lot! Ok I gotta go, but I really appreciate it. This helps a ton!

 

 

 

Objections

ARE YOU SELLING SOMETHING?”
                  Yes! But what’s cool about it is that they don’t have to buy anything so it’s SUPER low pressure. Whether I actually sit down with them I just talk to them over the phone for 60 seconds, it still helps. Don’t worry, I promise I won’t bother them. In fact, I bet they’ll love it! It’s really fun. So can you help me out please?


“LET ME ASK THEM FIRST”
                   That’s okay. But, like I said, I’m really supposed to talk to them myself to compete for the scholarship. I
wouldn’t be doing this if I thought I was going to bug your parents. It won’t take a lot of time, and I’m sure
they won’t be mad at you for helping your friend. So can you help me out please?


“THEY’RE REALLY BUSY” or “I’M NOT SURE IF THEY’D WANT TO”
                     No big deal. Worse thing that could happen is they say “no” and then it still helps me towards the contest.
It takes literally 60 seconds for me to talk to them on the phone, so it won’t take up too much of their time.
So can you help me out please?


“WHAT’S THE PRESENTATION ABOUT?”
                      Well it almost takes too long to explain, but basically I’m just demonstrating some kitchen stuff. Like I said,
it’s really easy and they don’t have to commit to seeing it, I just have to call and ask them. If they say they’re busy then no big deal. So can you help me out please?

 

(If they insist on talking to them first)

               Ok, you can go ahead and ask them, but make sure you ask them a certain way. Just say: I’m competing in a
scholarship contest. I get credit just to show them a quick presentation. It’s really fun and easy and only
takes 45 minutes.


If they say yes can you call/text me back with their number by ______? Ok thanks, _____!
