Telemarketing Outbound Calls - Staying Motivated

How many telemarketing outbound calls can you make before you start to sink down into your chair and feel bored or tired?

You use the same opening script a few times.

You get some rejection, and prospects not available.

When you're in this state, whatever term you may use to describe it, you have full access to all your resources.

The prospects can hear your motivational state in your voice.

When you make the first call and you're fully motivated and focused on your goal of closing a telesale or achieving a sales appointment your voice is vibrant and full of energy.

Make Your Telemarketing Outbound Calls Vibrant

If the above happens to you it can quickly be fixed
