Prospecting timing

Question
When is the best time to make contact with new prospects? 
Answer
There is no one rule about when to follow-up on a referral or make an initial contact. But in general, the best time to connect with potential customers is when it's the best time for the prospect.

Successful salespeople are also good time managers. And the most successful salespeople find a way to make contact with a prospect at time and place that works for both parties.
