So what exactly is a gatekeeper? Well, the decision makers you need to set appointments with are very busy people. A gatekeeper is usually someone who reports to the decision maker, with a title such as office manager, administrative assistant, secretary, etc. Their job is to screen phone calls, only allowing what they perceive as the most important to get through. For this discussion, your task is to do some outside research and share what you consider the “most creative” ways to bypass the gatekeeper and reach the decision maker.
Part II: Please review the Ultimate Toolkit video provided below on how to set an appointment with a decision maker once you get past the gatekeeper. Although the overall approach of this particular salesperson could be improved upon, he does the most important things required to secure an appointment very well. After reviewing the video, please share your thoughts on what was done well in the video, and what could be improved upon. Please be sure to explain your answer. No references are needed for Part II of this discussion since it is opinion based and the video is provided.
Please know that the video file below is large, and will take approximately 20-30 seconds to open.
