Telesales Essentials


The ability to sell or make appointments over the telephone is an integral part of today's sales landscape.  Too many telesales-led companies see it as a numbers game - often closing more doors than they are opening. 

How do the professionals succeed on the telephone? What really works? What unintentional errors might we be making? Sometimes it's a good idea to step back and take a long look at how to make telesales work for you.

This dynamic, in-depth, one-day workshop will take delegates through well-proven methods and techniques to increase their telephone selling capacity and generate more income.

Learning Objectives

Following the workshop delegates will be better able to

  • understand what makes target clients respond to some callers and not others.
  • discover which barriers exist before we even pick up the telephone - and how to overcome them
  • examine cold calling - how to make it work for us
  • understand how to recruit, or find ways to get round, 'gatekeepers'
  • discuss Voicemail pros and cons; look at some examples that get return calls
  • formulate a powerful introduction
  • find questions that work well - and how to really listen to the answers.
  • discover how to welcome and handle objections
  • discover 'constant closing', how to close and when to close
