How it works

Hot call

In sales jargon, the crowd to talk to first is the one you know best. After that, it’s your family and friends.

Warm call

This crowd that we determine the warm call is the one you know a little about. These are your family, friends, your references, and more.

Cold call

This crowd is often the easiest to approach, as they don’t know you. Practice on your family first.
