A great sales hook – The start of your sales call should be catchy enough to hook the prospect in such a way that will make them want to hear more. Once you have piqued their interest and they want to find out more about why you called, half your job is already done. You have been able to grab the attention which is half the battle won.
Try and open with a question – A simple yet intriguing question will keep a healthy conversation going between you and the end buyer. The direction of the entire call hinges on your prospect’s answer and the direction he/she is pushing the discussion to. The decision maker is usually a person in high authority and their voice tone will reveal if they’re ready to hit the nail or not.
Providing clarity about the offer – There has to be a level of consistency in what the offer is. You have to present the offer with conviction and great zeal. You have to reiterate and increase your level of commitment. Also, follow your lead generation strategies constantly, and eventually your efforts will lead to more conversions.
