Assumptions can be a big barrier in B2B telemarketing. A lot of times without proper market study or research telemarketers tend to draw assumptions and get to conclusions. Without the right lead generation techniques, you could make presumptions that can cost your sales leads instead. It’s important for a salesperson to be convincing, no matter what type of product or service is being offered.
There has to be a certain sense of authority when approaching a potential client and knowing what you are talking about. A void in the flow of words can cause a serious loss. When you offer telemarketing or lead generation services, you must exude confidence.
- Telemarketers focus on what they want to say or sell rather than what the prospect will likely want to know which confuses the prospect
- B2B sales staffs often make wrong assumptions about the prospect’s interest and may push too hard in turn losing the client
- Understanding more about your callers and their background as to what they will look like provides an extra edge
- Giving importance only if you see the prospect is interested to buy. Treating all calls with a sense of urgency will let them know your customers are important to you
