Struggling with cold calling? You’ve felt it, haven’t you? That nervous feeling clawing at your stomach when you know that you need to pick up the phone and start calling names on a list. It’s VERY normal, and you are not alone. Even sales professionals who do this every day continue to get these feelings. Remember, just like actors, it’s a good thing that you feel nervous before you make your mark on the stage. Turn a threat into an opportunity. This is your chance to crow about how good your product and service is, and a chance for you to SHINE! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Try these tips with your sales team; • Smile when you dial: Get yourself in a good happy mood before you pick up that phone • Feel the confidence within you: Be proud of what you are calling about and promote that internal confidence • Trial your approach: Do a dry-run with some of your friends or business colleagues. The more often you do it, the better you get and more self-confidence you will have • Don’t rush it: Learn the power of pausing and taking breath • A yes is great, but a no is also ok: Something we all forget…not everyone will want what you have, and that’s ok! • Be trained, get coached or mentored: This will help you with the skills, structure, and tools that will enable you to more confidently deliver their sales message. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sales Coaching and Mentoring - the New Normal? Sales coaching and mentoring programs are now becoming in very high-demand for professional development within sales, BD, and key account management roles.
