Don’t you hate cold calls? At Kensington we receive a number of cold calls every week, usually from web or SEO companies. I can understand that they want to make money and get new customers but I sometimes wish they would leave us alone.
In any case, today’s business English expression is “make a cold call” and it means to call or visit someone you don’t know for business purposes.
