I am having a hard time getting good response ratios on my cold calling efforts to request 15-20 mins with clinical professionals for customer development interviews. Any tips /suggestions on how I can be more effective? I have tried emailing/LinkedIn General Physician and Specialist Nurses in my area of interest.
The struggle is REAL! MDs used to get paid by Pharma labs to get their attention (real life exemple: $30-80 just to fill a tiny online form). To my experience (consulting & entrepreneurship in healthcare/medtech), I would say that most MDs do not like emails, social media or cold calls. The best way to have their attention is to get recommandation from other professional... Maybe you should try to contact some specialized medical associations or communities (dedicated groups on LinkedIn, experts on Clarity / Quora, etc.) Hope that it helps!
